Judge Removed Boy from Foster Parents’ Home and Sent to Biological Mother; Boy Died after few Days: Real Mom Arrested in Ohio and Face Life in Prison

A tragic incident unfolded in Ohio as a mother admitted to the heartbreaking act of taking her own child’s life in 2023.

On Tuesday, June 11, as Timmeka Eggleton, 31, admitted to the charges of murder, felonious assault, and endangering children in connection with the heartbreaking loss of her son Curtis.

Eggleton was with her son when he was found unresponsive in his stroller inside a store on June 14, 2023, as reported by the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he passed away.

The Medical Examiner’s office determined that Curtis’ cause of death was blunt force trauma to his body, which was determined to be non-accidental.

Eggleton was taken into custody on June 19, according to WKYC.

Last April, the boy’s aunt, LaTorya Witcher-Mosley, shared with FOX8 that Curtis had spent two-and-a-half years in foster care. However, in March of 2023, a judge made the decision to reunite the boy with his mother. Tragically, his life was cut short after a short time.

In June 2023, FOX8 interviewed Curtis’ foster parents following Eggleton’s murder charges. The parents, who remained anonymous in the article, expressed their deep commitment to the boy, whom they had lovingly cared for since he was just seven days old. They expressed their strong desire to adopt him, as they were concerned about his well-being if he were to be returned to live with Eggleton.

“Our son should still be alive today,” expressed the foster mother to the station. She exclaimed, “He brought an immense amount of happiness!”

Eggleton’s sentencing is set for July 22 and she could potentially face life in prison as reported by PEOPLE.
