A Racine County woman goes to jail after her toddler is discovered outside their residence in a T-shirt and diaper. Police in the Village of Caledonia say the 22-year-old woman called them roughly four hours after the two-year-old boy was located in 38-degree weather outside their apartment complex.
Reports indicate the woman last saw her son about 5:00am, but woke up to find him gone about noon. The toddler was outside maybe 30 minutes. The woman was jailed for possible child neglect, as well as possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
The Racine County Human Services Department has custody of the boy until the DA’s office determines what happens next.
