According to the local sheriff’s office, the scene happened just after midnight on February 27 in Middletown, Ohio. Mother Brittany Gosney says her partner, James Hamilton, 42, has ordered the release of her children. All three had to go, according to the man, who had no father.
Mother Cosni went to Rush Run Wildlife National Park at night with her three children, including James, 6. They had to leave, he later admitted during a hearing. Then she wanted to drive away. However, James got stuck in the car. Cosni accelerated, but stopped after a moment anyway. Then his son had already partially finished under the car. He collapsed at the scene.
Mother Cosni then put her body back in the car and returned home with her other two children.
She left her son’s body with Hamilton in the guest room. A day later, again in the dark, the two went to Lawrenceburg, Indiana, dumped the rest into the Ohio River and reported that little James was missing.
Police do not believe the confusing story of the two. They were subsequently interrogated separately. Cosni later admitted it all. He has been charged with murder, tampering with evidence and insulting a deceased person. Hamilton doubts the latter two facts.
Cosni’s other two children, a boy and a girl, are in foster care.
