Camden Pierce Hughes was identified as the small boy whose body was found in South Berwick, Maine last Saturday. He was from Irving, Texas. Reports this morning indicate his mother, Juli McCrery [who is in custody in Massachusetts] may have confessed to giving him an overdose of cough medicine [the autopsy determined he died of asphixiation]. God bless Camden and all the other children whose lives are cut short by people who should be protecting them.
