Woman charged with injuring son, who was 323 medical visits

DALLAS – A woman who, records show, took her 8-year-old son to Texas hospitals and pediatric centers, more than 320 times, was arrested and charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injury.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports 34-year-old Kaylene Bowen-Wright remained in the Dallas County jail Wednesday on $ 150,000 bond after her Dec. 6 arrest.

Child Protective Services says the child was seen 323 times in hospitals and pediatric centers in Dallas and Houston and underwent 13 major surgeries between 2009 and 2016.

CPS removed him from the Bowen-Wright’s care in the last month after he was warned by a Dallas hospital where medical staff determined he did not have cancer or many of the symptoms Bowen reported.

Her lawyer, public defender Christi Bustos, has not yet returned a message seeking comment.
