Body Of Irving Boy Found In Maine Returned To Texas

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – A family friend says the body of a boy left along a dirt road in Maine is back in Texas for a funeral to be held this weekend.

Shirley Miller, a long-time friend in Texas, told the Associated Press Tuesday that the body of 6-year-old Camden Hughes is back on Texas soil. The funeral is scheduled for Saturday.

Camden’s body was released Friday by the Maine medical examiner.

The boy’s mother, Julianne McCrery, of Irving, is being held in New Hampshire, where she’s charged with killing the boy before leaving him in South Berwick, Maine. She was originally detained in Massachusetts.

Miller says McCrery’s father, her other son and the son’s father traveled to Maine to retrieve Camden’s remains. She says they didn’t meet with Julianna McCrery.

  2. Louann Smith says:

    I cannot imagine a mother doing this to her son! I am so sorry for his remaining family that cared about him and would have taken him in a heartbeat if the mother had expressed that she could not care for him any longer. I will never understand the mental illness and evilness that some persons possess.

    This is really sad.

    I don’t understand how she could do this, either. I would like to point out, however, that not all people with a mental illness would do something like this.

        Most people with mental illness are unpredictable, and therefore should be dealt with accordingly.

    @ Louanne – There is alot of information out there that will help you understand what types of mental illnesses there are. Mental illness and evilness are not synonomous.

    @ HH – You really need to educate yourself on mental illness. The fact that most people with mental illness are unpredictable is totally FALSE. It is the ignorant person, such as yoursef, (that doesnt get educated) that should be dealt with accordingly.
