Documenting the journey of a Cameroonian filmmaker
The body of 6-years ld Camden Pierce Hughes was found wrapped in a blanket along a dirt road in Maine. Police reports say that the boy appeared to well-nourished and well taken care of before his death. Surprisingly no one had raised an alarm for his disappearance.
Luckily, last Wednesday, a police trooper recognized the truck which had reportedly been seen around the time of the boy’s disappearance. A woman was found in the truck reading a Bible and when the state trooper interrogated her, she immediately confessed to killing her son.
42-year old Julianne McCrery, mother of Camden told the trooper “I killed my son, I want to kill myself.”
Described as a religious fanatic, Ms McCrery claimed to have given her son too much cough medicine but autopsy reports revealed that he was suffocated.
In her defense, McCrey’s Lawyer told newspapers that ““loves her son. He’s dead. He’s in heaven. She wants to be with him.” He added: “She said over and over again I want to go to heaven.”
Friends of McCrery who describe her as a religious fanatic believe that she was caught up in the May 21st End of the World craze which is sweeping across the USA. Poor Camden is believed to be an innocent victim.
I take it her version of the Bible did not tell her the Lord says ” He will come like a thief in the night”. I wonder what they will all do when they wake up on Sunday morning and we all are still here. Major disappointment.
