She “tried to abandon Hutchinson,” the television allege, and he “tried to hold on to her car as she drove away…Gosney dragged him until he let go.”
She claimed she later returned to the parking lot and found him dead there; his official cause of death was not released.
The chief said the mother initially planned to abandon all three kids, but only left James behind. Once she picked the body back up, she put his body in a bedroom until the next day when she allegedly dumped the boy in the river, the chief said.
According to Birk, Brittany Gosney, age 29, was “charged with Murder, Abuse of a Corpse, and Tampering with Evidence.”
James Hamilton, age 42, “was charged with Abuse of a Corpse and Tampering with Evidence.”
The chief told WCPO that the two couldn’t agree on when they last saw the child, which investigators thought was suspicious.
The chief said that two other children in the household “have been removed from the residence.” The initial police press release when James was first reported missing said, “We have a missing 6 years old named James.
He is was last seen in the area of Crawford St. Hutchinson is a white male, 3’ tall, 42 lbs. He has dark blond/reddish hair and blue eyes. Hutchinson was last seen wearing a red shirt with blue and red Batman pajama pants. If you see him, call 911.”
