(iWIDK by Aaron Lanton) - A mother did the unthinkable because she had trouble finding free time.
In San Diego, California, 37-year-old Patricia Corby pleaded guilty to the murder of her 4-year-old autistic son after she drowned him in a bathtub because, “she was sick of taking care of him.”
According to UT San Diego, Crosby’s son had been diagnosed with being a high risk case for autism when he was only one-year-old.
Crosby testified during the murder trial that she had no life because everything she did revolved around taking care of her child.
After she drowned her son, she attempted to drown herself but was unable to go through with it.
Crosby turned herself into authorities following the failed suicide.
