A mother has admitted that she took the remains of her baby son along when she moved to a new house and hid the baby’s dead body in the walls of her home, according to police reports.
Kylie Wilt told authorities that her 1-year-old baby had been dead and hidden since February 2021, police said.
The 25-year-old told cops that she had placed her baby’s body in a crate and cut a hole in the wall of her Charleroi home before filling the drywall and painting over it.
Investigators said that child services came to her home last week to ask where her baby was, officials told WPXI.
The woman, from Pennsylvania, reportedly alleged the baby was in North Carolina being watched by someone else.
But then she changed her story, telling child services that her baby had died in February of sudden infant death syndrome [SIDS] at the couple’s former residence, New York Post reports.
