Mother Charged in Murder of Her 5-Year-Old Son

Ashley White of Pulaski, Virginia, has been charged with felony murder for the murder of her 5-year-old son who was found dead in a septic tank. The child had disappeared on March 22 which provoked a nationwide search until his body was discovered in a septic tank on his parents’ rental property on March 26.

White and the child’s father, Paul Thomas, had already been facing felony child abuse and neglect charges. Both are currently being held without bond in Pulaski County.
