Julissa Thaler’s family members are under the impression that she took the life of her son to keep custody of him.
During a routine traffic stop in Minnesota last week, officials discovered the corpse of a young kid, aged six, who had been placed in the trunk of his mother’s vehicle.
Julissa Thaler, age 28, was taken into custody by the police in Orono, Minnesota, for driving in Mound while her window was broken and she had a flat tire. Even though there was blood inside the vehicle, Thaler and the man who was in the car with her were allowed to drive away from the scene. The body of a young Eli Hart was discovered by the officers inside the trunk.
The police found Thaler nearby, still covered in blood and other biological evidence when they arrived at her apartment. According to the police, the clothes she was wearing during the time she was pulled over for a traffic violation were still in the washing machine in her apartment.
The formal charging of Thaler with murder in the second degree took place on Sunday. According to a criminal complaint that was obtained by the Star Tribune, Eli has been shot anywhere from seven to nine times in the head and torso. The body of the youngster was discovered within the trunk, and a shotgun was located nearby.
