This is heartbreaking!

This is the strangest and saddest story you’ll read all week.

Kimberly Lightwine was found by officer Billy Simpson on August 29, lying face down in a field. The mother was only wearing a pair of panties.

On that hot summer day, sprawled on the grass about 10 feet away, was her disabled 19-year-old son who was only wearing a diaper.

According to the probable cause statement, Lightwine told authorities: “I’m a terrible mother. I got high, and I got depressed, and I think I am going to throw up.”

The boy was dead.
