Mother Runs Over 6-Year-Old After Trying To Abandon Him, Dumps Body In Ohio River

A mother who reported her 6-year-old son missing has now been charged with running him over and dumping his body into the Ohio River.

Brittany Gosney of Middletown, Ohio, and her boyfriend, James Hamilton, reported Gosney’s son, James Hutchinson, missing on Sunday morning. However, after being questioned by police, Gosney confessed to killing the child. While she did not provide a motive, she did inform authorities that she attempted to abandon the boy in the Rush Run Wildlife Area in Preble County on Friday. The 29-year-old woman admitted to dragging the child with her vehicle before leaving the scene. About 40 minutes later, she returned to the area, where she found Hutchinson with a head injury. She then took him to a home on Crawford Street.

At some point, Gosney and 42-year-old Hamilton believed that the boy was dead. That is when they decided to dump him into the Ohio River. As of late Monday, Hutchinson’s body had not been recovered.

Chief David Birk of the Middletown Police Department says that Gosney is “not showing much remorse” in the wake of her confession. She was arraigned in Middletown Municipal Court Monday on several charges in connection to the murder. Hamilton has been charged with abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.

Gosney’s other two children were in the vehicle when Hutchinson was dragged with the car. However, they were unharmed and are now in foster care.

The school district has organized a vigil for Tuesday evening at Barnitz Stadium, which is located next to Rosa Parks Elementary School, where the “joyful” first-grader was a student.

Coronavirus mRNA vaccines may not work for obese people

A new study suggests the coronavirus mRNA vaccines may not be as effective when administered to obese people.

So far, only 15% of the U.S. population has been vaccinated against Covid-19. Of that number, less than 1% are Black.

The CDC even has a term for it: Black vaccine hesitancy.

According to the news media, the vaccines are “safe and effective.” Yet obese Black women are dying within hours after receiving their vaccine doses. A majority of Black women who reportedly died after receiving the vaccines are obese.

A new study out of Italy found that Pfizer’s vaccines may be less effective in obese people who received both doses.

Researchers at the National Cancer Institute Regina Elena determined that obese people produced only half of the antibodies compared with people with a normal body mass index (BMI).

“Since obesity is a major risk factor for morbidity and mortality for patients with Covid-19, it is mandatory to plan an efficient vaccination program in this subgroup,” the study’s authors wrote.

In addition to obesity, other risk factors for Covid-19 include respiratory disorders, heart disease, diabetes, HIV and smoking.

Researchers say further studies are needed to determine why the vaccines are less effective for obesity people.
