Christopher And Cynthia Ewerdt - Jailed After Giving 12-Year-Old Child Mushrooms - Child Found Wandering In Creek, Covered With Mud

Omaha, Nebraska (The Weekly Vice) - Christopher Ewerdt, 39, and Cynthia Ewerdt, 37, were jailed Wednesday after they allegedly gave their 12-year-old daughter magic mushrooms so that she could have a "religious experience."

According to Omaha Police, an investigation was launched after officers found a 12-year-old girl covered in mud, crying and wandering in a "distraught" manner near the Regency Lodge in Omaha.

The little girl told police that her parents had given her mushrooms for "religious purposes." She then left the couple's home, wandered to a nearby creek and laid down in it.

Police searched the couple's home and found a mushroom grow operation. Investigators recovered more than 45 grams of psilocybin mushrooms from the home.

The couple is believed to have given the child mushrooms in the past, according to police spokesperson, Lieutenant Darci Tierney.

Christopher and Cynthia Ewerdt was booked into jail on charges of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and child abuse. Bail in the case has been set at $500,000.
