In a tragic incident that has shaken the community, a woman in Miami-Dade County is now facing charges for the alleged murder of her own son. According to reports from News 6 partner WPLG, the victim had recently celebrated his eighth birthday in July, only to meet a horrifying fate at the hands of his own mother.
The lifeless body of young Jaisyn Burgos was discovered on Tuesday at Hialeah Hospital, where a doctor officially pronounced him dead. Further investigation by a Miami-Dade medical examiner revealed that Jaisyn had tragically lost his life due to strangulation, a revelation that sent shockwaves throughout the region.
During police interrogations, the accused, identified as Shaneka McKinzie, confessed to the heinous act. Shockingly, McKinzie admitted to using a tablecloth to attack her son while he peacefully slept in the backseat of her car. The chilling details of this confession paint a disturbing picture of a mother’s unthinkable actions.
McKinzie, 36, had recently relocated to Miami-Dade from Missouri. She revealed that she had meticulously planned the murder over a period of two days. After committing the unimaginable act, she callously went about her daily routine, even engaging in DoorDash deliveries and running errands, before finally taking her son to the hospital.
The accused had been living in a state of homelessness, seeking refuge at an extended stay hotel. Surprisingly, a neighbor residing at the same location claimed to have noticed nothing out of the ordinary in McKinzie’s demeanor or her relationship with her son. The shocking nature of this crime has left the community stunned and searching for answers.
Authorities wasted no time in bringing McKinzie to justice. Detectives apprehended her in the early hours of Thursday morning, and she was promptly presented in court. County records indicate that she is currently being held without bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, facing a first-degree murder charge.
As the investigation continues, detectives are urging anyone with information regarding this tragic incident to come forward. Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers can be reached at 305-471-8477, and any assistance from the public may prove instrumental in shedding further light on this heart-wrenching case.
