Law & Crime reports that a teen mom who claimed her baby had been abducted actually killed him. 19-year-old Jenna Folwell told police that someone had taken her 4-week-old son in Chandler, Arizona. Authorities determined this was a lie and she has been arrested for murdering the little boy.
On Wednesday, the Chandler Police Department began investigating the disappearance after Folwell called 911 to report the kidnapping. She told dispatchers that an unknown perpetrator covered her head with a bag so she couldn’t identify them. Police looked at surveillance camera footage and canvassed the neighborhood searching for the child, even going door to door.
When police arrived at Folwell’s home, they found her door unlocked and searched the premises, finding the boy’s deceased body in the house. She was arrested on suspicion of first-degree premeditated murder.
Folwell has no attorney on record and formal charges have not been filed.
When investigators looked at her phone search history, they found “ways to die instantly” and “missing babies case.”
Her bond has been set at $1 million.
