Summer ManyWhiteHorses – Mother Drove Around For Months With Dead Child In Trunk Of Her Car, According To Police
Great Falls, Montana (The Weekly Vice) - Troubling new details have emerged in the case of a mother, who's two year old autistic child was found dead in the trunk of her car last Friday.
Summer ManyWhiteHorses, a 31 year old Montana woman was charged Monday with deliberate homicide after investigators found the dead body of her 2-year-old son James in the trunk of her vehicle. Now police say the body of her son may have remained in her trunk for months as she drove around town.
ManyWhiteHorses was first arrested on July 21, after police say they noticed that she was driving erratically. When an officer attempted to pull her over, ManyWhiteHorses allegedly ignored their attempts and continued to drive through several stoplights until she eventually crashed into another vehicle. The vehicle was then towed to a salvage yard, where it would remain for approximately six weeks.
Investigators say ManyWhiteHorses was cited and then released from jail, but did not retrieve her vehicle or her son's body from the trunk of the car.
Authorities became concerned about the child when Child and Family Welfare workers, attempting to gain custody of ManyWhiteHorse's two children, were unable to verify the child's whereabouts.
Investigators assigned to the case interviewed ManyWhiteHorses who told them she had placed her autistic child in a garbage bag and placed him in the trunk of her car after his death in May.
Although ManyWhiteHorses told authorities that her son James' death was accidental, court records indicated that authorities are conducting an autopsy to determine how and when the toddler died.
ManyWhiteHorses is now being held at the Cascade County Detention Center on $250,000 bail.
