THORNTON, Colo. – A Colorado woman accused of leaving her son alone in the car at night during a snowstorm seemed to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol around the time they apparently abandoned the boy.
Court documents say that surveillance video captured 26-year-old Nicole Carmon walk in a gas station Friday night in a suburb of Denver, looking disheveled and sad. Researchers say said they seemed to say something about the “Purpose” and pointed to a nearby Target store before the walk.
The boy was found Saturday morning in a car covered in snow parked at the Target store about 14 hours later. He had hypothermia and frostbite.
The Denver Post (http://dpo.st/2hSGJP2 ) reports that Carmon told the police that she had six shots of vodka on Friday.
The public prosecutor’s office declined to comment on the allegations.
