A 13-month-old baby is boy is dead after being left inside a locked car overnight Friday and into the afternoon hours on Saturday in north Alabama.

The boy’s mother, 36-year-old Elizabeth Anne Case, is charged with murder, according to Limestone County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Stephen Young.

Deputies responded Saturday afternoon where Athens Police and Athens Fire were on scene with a vehicle containing the child, his mother and grandmother.

Investigators determined, Young said, that the boy had been left inside a vehicle overnight Friday and well into Saturday on East Limestone Road, and that the mother and grandmother were attempting to transport the child to the hospital. The baby was transported to Athens-Limestone Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The investigation showed that Case had left her residence between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. with her child buckled into a front-facing car seat and without strapping the seat to the vehicle. Case traveled to both Limestone and Madison counties where she was “dumpster diving” while the child was in the vehicle.

She returned home around 5:40 a.m. on Saturday and left the baby in the vehicle when she went inside the home and went to bed. Case awoke around 1:30 p.m. when the baby’s grandmother came to the residence to see him.

She woke Case up by banging on the door when she couldn’t find her grandchild. They searched for the baby and found him in the car, Young said.

Instead of seeking immediate medical help, Case took the child in the home and placed him in the shower. The grandmother called 911, loaded the child in the car with Case, and met Athens Police at the Recreation Center at Highway 251 and Highway 31. Investigators developed probable cause to arrest Case for murder and transported her to the Limestone County Jail.

Young said Case is a known drug user and was out of jail on bond for a first-degree robbery.

An Alabama mom has been charged with murder in connection with the death of her infant son after he was left in a car overnight, police said.

Elizabeth Case, 36, was arrested in Athens, Ala. Saturday and was held without bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had a lawyer.

Limestone County sheriff's deputies said Case left home with the 13-month-old boy Friday evening to go “dumpster diving.” They said she left the child in the car when she returned home around 5:40 a.m. Saturday.

She awoke around 1:30 p.m. Saturday when her mother arrived, and they found the boy still in the car. Deputies said Case put the child in the shower and her mother called 911.

The boy was taken to Athens-Limestone Hospital where he was pronounced dead, officer Stephen Young told the News Courier.

Stupid druggie.
WTF is up with her nose? Did she get that from "dumpster diving" into trash? Toss her into a dumpster outside a seafood restaurant, lock the lid down, and let her ferment there in the hot sun.
