Mom returning from vacation is arrested for 2002 murder of toddler son after FBI reviewed the evidence – The Sun
A MOM was arrested for a 2002 murder of her toddler son when she arrived back from a Florida vacation after the FBI reviewed the evidence.
Kelly Anderson, 42, was charged with second-degree murder on Wednesday following the death of her 16-month-old son Ethan Eslick.
On August 29 2002 the cops received a report that Eslick was found dead by his mother at a household in Dundee, New York.
In the household were Ethan's three-year-old brother, Jordan, and Kelly's boyfriend, Ronald McGuire, 28.
After the young boy's body was sent for a forensic autopsy, the official ruled the cause of death as homicide by asphyxiation.
However, no arrests were made into the little boy's death and the case went cold.
Lt Scott Baker said in a post on the Yates County Sheriff's Office Facebook page: "In the fall of 2018 new leads were developed and Sheriff’s Criminal Investigators enlisted the resources of the NY State Police Troop E – BCI Special Investigations Unit, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Buffalo, NY and the FBI Behavioral Science Unit in Quantico, VA. in continuing this cold case investigation."
Sheriff Spike said: "Resources devoted to this case especially by the NY State Police BCI Special Investigations Unit have been exceptional, and we thank them for the collaboration with YCSO Criminal Investigators, especially our lead Inv. Arlyn Cunningham, with dogged determination.
"This has been a time consuming matter, that Investigators have remained steadfast on that resulted in District Attorney Todd Casella presenting the matter to a Yates County Grand Jury that returned a sealed indictment June 27, 2020.
"Anderson was arrested today without incident in Dundee, NY after her return from Florida, and this culminates long overdue justice for Ethan."
Appearing in front of a court via Skype on Wednesday, Anderson entered a plea of not guilty, the Chronicle Express reported.
