A 37-year-old mother in the US has been charged after allegedly driving around with her 11-year-old daughter’s dead body hidden in boot of the car for two days.
Erica Newsome from Jacksonville, Florida, was driving to the home her daughter’s father in Buffalo, New York, when she struck a guardrail on a highway in West Virginia, local publication The Pocahontas Times reports.
Passersby said they saw Newsome get out of the car after the accident, remove a body from the back of the car, and drag it over the embankment.
The body was identified as Newsome’s 11-year-old daughter, Kaye-lea Plummer, who police say did not die from the car accident.
The mother has since been charged with concealing a body.
