Mother IDs boy pulled from fiery I-85 crash


Last Tuesday, Hapeville police released a sketch of a boy with short black hair and thick eyebrows.

He had been pulled from a fiery car crash on northbound I-85 on Nov. 14, and police wanted to know his name.

Authorities figured somebody out there could solve the mystery. Their hunch was right.

A friend of the boy’s mother “showed her a photo from a ‘news story,’” police spokeswoman Andrea Boyes said Monday.

The mother came forward Sunday and identified the nameless boy as her son. He died early Friday, 11 days after

a good Samaritan pulled him from a wrecked black Infiniti convertible, Boyes said.

The boy’s name was not released because he was a juvenile, she said. Police have not discussed what led to the fiery crash.
