Woman Who Found Irving Boy To Officiate At Funeral

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – The Maine woman who found the body of a 6-year-old boy beneath a blanket on a South Berwick back road is going to help officiate at his funeral in Texas.

The Portland Press Herald says Linda Gove, who has worked as a missionary in Africa, will officiate Saturday at the funeral of Camden Hughes at the Calvary Baptist Church in Grand Prairie, Texas, along with Pastor Bill Skaar.

Gove discovered Camden’s body May 14.

Camden’s mother, 42-year-old Julianne McCrery, of Irving, Texas, was arrested in Massachusetts on May 17 and charged in New Hampshire with second-degree murder in her son’s death. He was asphyxiated.

Police believe he was killed in Hampton, N.H.

McCrery is due to make a court appearance on Thursday.

    What a wonderful example of a compassionate woman! Please do not judge all of Texas by this horrible act. God bless you for coming to this poor chid’s aid.

      Why would people judge Texas over this? Your initial comment was great, then it went to “pinhead” level in an instant. The nut who drove her kids into a lake wasn’t from here, nor are dozens of other cases. Sadly, it happens everywhere.
