Kylie Wilt, a mother, 25, has admitted that she took the remains of her toddler son along when she moved to a new house and hid his corpse in the walls of her home, according to police reports.
Kylie Wilt told police that her one-year-old kid had been deceased and buried since February 2021.
The 25-year-old told cops that she had placed her baby’s body in a box and made a hole in the wall of her Charleroi home before filling it and painting over it.
According to WPXI, investigators revealed that child services arrived her home last week to inquire about the whereabouts of her baby.
The mother, from Pennsylvania, allegedly claimed the baby was being watched by someone else in North Carolina.
However, she then changed her story, telling child services that her baby had died in February of sudden infant death syndrome at her former residence, New York Post reports.
The child protection services had been investigating Wilt’s baby for months after he was born with the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, in his system.
Wilt told police that once the baby died, she became nervous.
She then said, she took the baby's corpse with her after she, her boyfriend and her three other children moved to another home three roads away.
The mother claims she hid the baby because she didn’t have enough money for a funeral.
Wilt is now facing charges of concealing the death of a child, abuse of a corpse, welfare fraud, obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence.
The baby’s father, Alan Hollis, is also facing charges of obstructing the administration of law or other governmental functions.
Her son’s cause of death is still being investigated.
