Mom Smothers Toddler Son to Death, and Then Kills Herself by Stepping In Front of a Semi Truck

It’s a story that is nothing short of heartbreaking. A mother smothered her son to death, and then shortly afterwards, committed suicide by jumping in front of a semi.

According to news reports, Kayelisa Martin took her own son’s life and, a day later was involved in an automobile accident. Strangely, she brought the body of her dead baby with her while she gave an accident report to police.

Martin spoke to the police early in the day while holding her baby son’s body and, even though she had killed him the day before, she said nothing to officials about his death. Officers and paramedics did not notice that 14-month-old boy was dead as Martin carried body into police station to file a crash report.

Shortly thereafter, Martin’s father, who is a pastor, learned she had smothered her boy, Omoyele Gonzalez, the day before the crash. In the hours after the accident report police found the boy’s body and learned from her family that Martin was suicidal. They had noted marks on her arms from cutting herself.

Hours after Martin left the police station and while police and family attempted to sort out what was going on, she place the body of her infant son in bed and the young mother died after throwing herself in front of a tractor trailer.

This is just a tragic situation, especially considering her family knew she was suicidal. It begs the question: how different could this story have ended if they had removed the child and gotten Martin the help she so desperately needed?
