Georgia Boy, 2, Is Found Dead in Family Pool – Mom Is Unable to Be with Him as He Takes Last Breaths

Nobody should have to experience the pain of losing a child, but things could not have gotten any worse for a particular mother-of-two. Not only does she have to live with the trauma of finding her infant’s unresponsive body in a pool, but she might have to do so in jail.

Children, especially infants, are naturally curious and want to explore the world around them. They do not understand the danger, so guardians and parents are often encouraged to watch the little ones.

But sometimes, when an adult is not looking, children can easily wander off in the blink of an eye. In some cases, the infants are eventually found unharmed, but in other cases, they are not.

Unfortunately, the latter was the ordeal of a mom-of-two who had her world turned upside down when she found her two-year-old son unconscious in a pool. Now, not only will she live without seeing her child again, but she might be spending a long time behind bars. Here are the details of the story.

What Happened to Justus?

On October 17, 2022, Dominique Murray was having a good time with her two young children at a family friend’s place. The doting mom had just returned from her honeymoon, and everything was going fine, but in a matter of minutes, her life would go in a downward spiral.

According to reports, Murray’s two-year-old son, Justus, wandered away when nobody was paying attention.

When Murray and her family friend discovered that Justus was not around them, they searched the entire house, hoping to find him playing inside.

But unknown to them, the infant had gone outside. Sadly, when the mom finally went outside, she met one of the most devastating sights of her life. Murray found Justus unconscious in the family friend’s pool.

According to reports, she immediately called 911, and while they were on the way, Murray began CPR on the infant.

The deputies arrived, and the terrified mom was arrested while Justus was taken to the hospital, where the doctors pronounced him dead. Unfortunately, Murray could not say goodbye to her son as she was in jail.

Murray’s Mother’s Thoughts about Her Daughter’s Arrest

The mom of two was charged with second-degree child cruelty, even though Murray’s family claimed it was an accident. In the words of the defendant’s mother, Demetrius Miller:

“My daughter is a great mother, and I am so distraught by the system because I feel like it failed her. They have her locked up. She was not allowed to come to see her son leave this world.”

Miller further described her daughter as an amazing young lady who was “not of the streets and in the streets.” According to the older woman, Murray was a good mother who cared for her home and kids.

This is why she was devastated when Miller heard that her daughter could spend up to ten years in jail if found guilty.

For Miller, it was heartbreaking because Murray was denied the chance to see Justus one last time before he died and was taken away from the hospital. Miller noted:

“They could have brought her up there with chains covered up. Justus needed to see and hear his mother’s voice, and they deprived her of that. They took that away from her.”
