‘You can see the blood in his eyes’: How a teen with autism could get into the same room as a serial killer
Posted February 03, 2019 14:09:33 In the midst of the presidential campaign, there’s an ongoing debate over what the media should cover about a man whose family believes he was murdered by his stepfather and who had autism.
Now, it’s been revealed the young man with autism has actually been in the same rooms as the man accused of murdering his mother.
According to a police report, the boy was allegedly in the room where the young suspect and his girlfriend were in April.
However, a detective investigating the case said the boy “could see the victim’s blood stains in the bathroom” after he was allegedly killed.
The boy is now in the custody of police in Maryland and will be questioned over the killing of his mother, the report said.
In a statement, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh said he was shocked by the allegations.
“I am shocked by these shocking allegations and am reviewing them thoroughly,” he said.
“This is a horrifying, heinous crime that would have shocked anyone who knew the boy.
I will not tolerate this type of violence against anyone, and I will be contacting the family immediately to make sure the boy is taken away from his family.”
Frosh said the police report showed the boy did not know the man who was allegedly involved in the crime, who he was or what happened after his mother’s death.
The victim, who is not being named, was killed in April 2017 by her estranged husband, who had moved out of the family home after their daughter was born.
The man who killed his mother has not been charged with her murder.
The report said the investigation into the incident revealed the boy had been involved in a number of violent incidents over the past few years, including fights with other children and other adults.
It also said the teen was placed in foster care after his birth.
Frost said the case is being investigated by detectives and the department will release the results when they are available.
This story has been corrected to say that the boy who is now being questioned is being held in Maryland, not Maryland, where he is from. [More]
