Camden Pierce Hughes

A young boy found dead on a remote Maine road has reportedly been identified as Camden Pierce Hughes, a 6-year-old from Texas.

Juli Mccrery, the child's mother, confessed to Massachusetts State Police that she administered an overdose of medication that killed her son, WBZ-TV reports.

Calls to the Massachusetts State Police were not immediately returned.

After the boy's body was discovered along a rural road in South Berwick, investigators released a computer-generated image of the child and were swamped with hundreds of tips about the boy's possible identity.

Authorities focused their attention on witnesses who said they saw a woman driving a blue Toyota Tacoma pickup truck near the location where the child was discovered.

According to the station, a Massachusetts state trooper who was aware of the lead pulled over a vehicle that matched the description at an I-495 rest stop in Chelmsford, Mass., on Wednesday morning. The motorist, identified as the victim's mother, reportedly made statements about the boy's death and was taken into protective custody.

Mccrery's ex-boyfriend, Robert Miller, who called himself as "the only dad [Hughes] ever knew," described the child as "a very nice boy ... an innocent boy" who was in the "gifted and talented class in kindergarten."

"All I know is that he's dead and she's in jail," Miller told WBZ-TV. "I don't know why she was even up there."

Poor little Camden now he can play all he want's. There is a lot I can say and what I would like to do to his mother but I'm not this post is not about her it's about Camden. It's just sad and makes me cry that this little boy will never have a chance in life but now nobody can hurt him.

God Speed Little Angel.

    Poor little innocent Camden. Murdered so young in life. At least he has peace now. I hope they throw the book at his mother.

    There is nothing worse than a person who would hurt or kill an innocent child...except when that person is the mother or father of the child. Bless his heart and I hope he is in a safer and happier place where he is loved and cared for.

    As for the mother, I would suggest someone slowly administer her an "overdose" of strychnine or some other painful poison so she can suffer and die. I'm sorry but no mercy for this witch!
