Child dies after being thrown into river by mother

Mom Allegedly Kills 4-Year-Old Autistic Daughter by Throwing her into a River

Divers in Tampa, Florida pulled the body of a child from the Hillsborough River after witnesses reported seeing a woman throw the child into the water.

Cops said Denson stole a vehicle from a local auto shop and drove it to the river, where she parked and then waded into the waters with the small child. The child was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital but was pronounced dead at 4:49 p.m. The slain girl was identified as Je'Hryah Daniels.

Police said they located the woman and took her into custody.

Shakayla Denson, 26, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Je'Hyrah Daniels.

"Unfortunately, at this point, there are more questions than there are answers", said Dugan. Police say she then dropped her daughter in the water and walked away. Benson told investigators her daughter was in elementary school and she was trying to get her into therapy and enrollment in an autism center.

From her third-floor condominium unit near the river, Vicki Walker took cellphone images of the curious site of a woman in the water and shared the pictures with Tampa Bay television station WFTS.

This is not the first time someone has allegedly drowned a child in a Tampa-area river. She was about 75 feet from shore. She has previous arrests for driving with a suspended license and theft charges dating back two years ago.

"It's really sad. I don't know the circumstances, I don't know what's going on in their lives, but it's killing me."

On Jan. 8, 2015, 5-year-old Pheobe was thrown off the Dick Misener Bridge into Tampa Bay by her father, John Jonchuck.

The investigation was opened on June 19, but was was closed on Tuesday after no evidence of maltreatment, abuse or neglect was found, the agency said.

The report says someone accused Benson of being overwhelmed by the challenges of raising the child as a single mother and would pay little attention to Je'Hyrah, allowing her to wander off without supervision.
