Rachel Kinsella, 35, is facing serious charges after she was caught purposely poisoning her 9 year-old son.
According to American Overlook, Kinsella was poisoning the child by combining prescriptions from two different doctors. Her arrest came after a year-long investigation, and her son is now safely with his grandmother.
Police were first alerted when hospital workers noticed the boy became much healthier as he stayed in the medical facility. Kinsella has now been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, but she has denied all accusations against her.
“We deny all the allegations that have been made against her. Rachel wants her son back… Now that we have a criminal case, we are prepared to fight the good fight,” Kinsella’s attorney Greg Smith said in a statement.
Kinsella was held in jail over the weekend on a $50,000 bond, but her bail has been posted and she is currently a free woman.
Some have speculated that Kinsella is suffering from “Munchausen by proxy,” which is when people force their children to become ill in order to get attention for themselves. As far as we can tell, that’s the only possible explanation for this…
