    MOTHER ACCUSED OF KILLING HER GOES ON TRIAL IN DEKALB COUNTY

    Recently in DeKalb County, Teresa Ann Black, A mother accused of killing her child and leaving his body in the woods more than twenty years ago went on trial. Black is charged with murdering her son more than 20 years ago and concealing his death.

    Black initially lied to investigators who traveled to Arizona to collect a DNA sample from her after an investigation led them to believe she was Hamilton’s mother.

    His body was discovered in a wooded area near a small cemetery on Clifton Springs Road in February 1999. Hamilton was six years old when his body was found in the woods in DeKalb County in 1999 with a toxic level of medicine in his system.

    Investigators had a hard time figuring out exactly what happened to him because his body was so badly decomposed when someone stumbled upon his remains six months after his body was left in the woods.

    Black claimed she left her son with a woman at a homeless shelter in Atlanta in the late 90s because she was no longer able to care for him.

    Black continued to insist she was telling the truth, even after the police told her William was dead and they didn’t believe her story.

    Black said they laid down to sleep and when she woke up the next morning, William didn’t wake up. She left the child’s body in the field and eventually returned to North Carolina.

    Then, in 2019, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released an image of a facial reconstruction of the victim.

    Witnesses testified that she lied about the boy’s whereabouts after his death.

    If convicted, Black faces life in prison without parole.
