A North Carolina mother is mourning the loss of her 2-year-old son who died tragically while in the care of a family friend last week.
On Friday (October 7), a 2-year-old boy with special needs was found dead at a Christian daycare run out of a home in Edenton, North Carolina. He was discovered upside down in a five-gallon bucket that contained three inches of water.
CorNyeah Lindsey had dropped off her son, Dinari Lindsey, at Open Arms Christian Ministry on Friday before work. The boy was autistic and had disabilities that required him to wear glasses and a hearing aid. Police told the mom that Dinari was not wearing the glasses and aid at the time of his death.
While at work, Lindsey said that she received a phone call that Dinari was at the hospital. When she arrived, she was met by a Sheriff’s deputy who told her that her son had passed away.
According to Lindsey, police said that Cliff Beaman had flagged down a Sheriff’s deputy as he was driving by and told him that he was searching for a 2-year-old boy who had gone missing. The officer reportedly found Dinari upside down in a bucket after spotting his feet among other items outside of the home.
