Woman who dumped her child’s body stabbed to death by child’s father

A Washington DC woman who dumped her son’s lifeless body in a dumpster last year has been stabbed by the child’s father. The baby was two months old when he reportedly died in his sleep before his mother panicked and threw the body in the trash.

The Washington DC Police Department received reports of an incident at an apartment complex on Benning Road around 3 a.m. on Wednesday, April 27. There they found the body of 39-year-old LaDonia Boggs in her home with stab wounds. According to People, the officers found on the spot that she had died from her injuries.

Not much later, 44-year-old Carl Jones was arrested. Jones is the father of Boggs’ son, Kyon Jones, who was reported missing almost a year ago. Kyon was last seen on May 5, 2021. Two days later, the family reported his disappearance.

A conversation recording obtained by WRC-TV, in which Boggs admits to dumping the child in the garbage, reveals that Kyon died while sleeping with his mother. “The last thing I remember is that he was on my chest. Then I fell asleep and turned over to him. When I woke up and turned around, I noticed that he wasn’t responding anymore. He wasn’t breathing either more and then I panicked.”

Boggs told police she was taking PCP, an anaesthetic, before accidentally flipping over her son. She was initially charged with murder, but the trial was delayed by evidence tampering. Kyon’s body has never been found.
