According to a press release posted on the Bay County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, deputies were called to a residence in Callaway around 4 p.m. on Tuesday. This occurred after a man stopped by the local fire department and told first responders that his girlfriend had killed their child.
Deputies said when they arrived at the home, both the man and woman were standing outside, and both were “distraught.” Just as a deputy walked toward the woman, according to the release, she confessed to the murder. The Daily Mail claims the woman ranted to officers about a Biblical flood and Noah’s ark, and that she may have been “delusional.”
It was at that point that the woman was taken into custody. She was also treated at a local hospital for a self-inflicted wound, per the Daily Mail. The mother has been identified as 27-year-old Egypt Moneeck Robinson.
A search ensued for the child, reportedly named Aries Juan Acevedo. He was found floating in a pond behind the house, lodged inside a suitcase. According to officials, the child had most likely been dead for more than 24 hours. He may have been killed by a stab wound, according to the Mail.
On her way to the sheriff’s office, the deputy wrote in his report that the 27-year-old made several unprompted statements about the impending end of the world, and how she was trying to save her son from a Biblical flood.
‘The world is going to flood and everyone was going to be drowned and I can’t be drowned, therefore, I have to be shot in the head,’ Robinson was quoted as telling the officer before declaring, ‘I was just trying to save my baby!’
She later added: ‘Everyone on Noah’s Ark relieved and my baby will relive again!’
