Mum Pushes Autistic Son Into Canal ‘In Failed Attempt To Kill Him’ Then Runs Away

A mum accused of killing her nine-year-old son has been filmed pushing him into a canal, in what police say was a failed attempt to kill him.

Police allege Patricia Ripley, 45, faked her son Alejandro’s abduction after she drowned him in a canal in Miami, Florida.

Her husband Aldo has said the claims are “not real” but footage has since emerged of the Florida woman seeming to push the boy into the water in what police believe was her first failed attempt to kill him.

The clip, obtained by security firm Univision, shows Ripley pulling her son along the canal front.

She then stops and appears to have a conversation with Alejandro.

Moments later, she is seen pushing him down the hill and into the water.

The woman immediately runs away but neighbours hear his screams and come to his rescue.

“An hour later she brought him to a different canal, this time, unfortunately, there was no one there to save him,” said Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle at a press conference Saturday morning.

“The tragic loss of a 9-year-old boy here and the loss of any young life, leaves us grieving. This boy’s senseless, senseless death will stay with us.”

Ripley was arrested 48 hours later after reporting him missing, allegedly telling police at first that he was abducted by two men.

After Alejandro’s body was discovered on Friday (May 22), police said Ripley told them: “He’s going to be in a better place.”

The youngster lived with a severe form of autism that left him unable to speak and required around-the-clock care.

Investigators believe his disability was the motive for the alleged murder.

Ripley is now facing charges of first-degree murder and attempted premeditated murder which if convicted, could result in a death sentence in the US state or life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Her family has dismissed the allegations. Husband Aldo told local reporters: “The only thing I’ll say is that we love our life, we love Alejandro, and we don’t agree with whatever they say about my wife.

“It’s not real.”
