Police in Greenville, South Carolina came upon a horrible discovery this week.
While answering a call at a local hotel, they found a dead 14-year-old boy in the hotel room on Monday.
The boy's mother was also in the room, alive, but incoherent.
The death of a child always impacts more than just that family.
As a nation, it is crushing when we hear of such a story, and this one is particularly disturbing.
The Greenville County Coroner's Office stated, "There were no obvious signs of physical injury noted to Mr. Poston. Mr. Poston's date of death is estimated to be November 14, 2022. An autopsy was performed on Mr. Poston on November 22, 2022."
The fact that this boy was in this room, with his mother, for a full week before anyone realized he was dead is both horrific and heartbreaking.
The boy's mother was incoherent with police entered the room, and she was transported to a local hospital and put into intensive care.
However, they did not release any possible causes as to health issues of the mother that left her in this state.
The police could not say if the boy had any disabilities or other health issues that could have contributed to his death, as they were awaiting more records before releasing a report.
Even though we have the preliminary results of the autopsy, the final results will not be posted for two to three months.
The investigation into the boy's death will remain open with local authorities.
We will continue to monitor the situation and update as necessary with any relevant information on the case.
