Mother Found Pushing 3-Year-Old Son’s Lifeless Body in a Swing at Maryland Park





La Plata, Maryland–The people of the small, peaceful town of La Plata were shocked when they found a 24-year-old woman pushing her 3-year-old son’s dead body in a swing at the Wills Memorial Park last Friday, May 22. Apparently, the mother, who was later identified as Romechia Simms, was seen with her son, Ji’Aire Donnell Lee at the park, which is located at 500 St. Mary’s Avenue since Thursday night.

The Neighbors’ concern grew when they noticed that Romechia was still pushing his son back and forth on the equipment until the morning of the next day. One of the neighbors then decided to call the police.
