WAXAHACHIE, Texas (KXAN) — A 6-year-old boy who was the subject of an Amber Alert earlier Friday was found dead, along with his mother, NBC station KXAS reports.
A large portion of downtown Waxahachie was shut down as first responders investigated a “hazmat” situation near a parking garage. That’s where investigators found Phillip Wiedeman and 46-year-old Candace Rochelle Harbin dead inside Harbin’s car.
Harbin was described as a “non-custodial parent” in the Amber Alert. According to KXAS, the boy’s father and mother were estranged. The boy’s father had alerted police at 9 a.m. about Phillip’s disappearance.
Police have not released details about how the mother and son died.
