Who Is Julianne McCrery?

CONCORD, Mass. (CBS) — Julianne McCrery was taken into custody by Massachusetts State Police Wednesday morning at a rest area in Chelmsford. It was the truck she was driving that got their attention. It was a blue Toyota Tacoma with an extended cab and Navy insignia on the license plate. It was the same truck someone in South Berwick, Maine said they saw hours before finding the body of a little boy on the side of a road.

McCrery was taken to the State Police barracks in Concord for questioning, and that’s where sources say she admitted to killing her son, Camden Pierce Hughes, saying she gave him an overdose of medication.

McCrery is from Irving, Texas and has a criminal history in Texas where she’s been arrested several times. Her most recent arrest was in 2009 when she was charged with prostitution. She was also arrested in 2004 for possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and in 2003 for prostitution. Those two cases were dismissed.

WBZ-TV’s Kathy Curran reports.

According to Dallas County family court it ordered biological testing in 2006 and found Camden’s father is Phillip Robinette. In a handwritten letter from jail RobinetteĀ denies being Camden’s father. In 2005 the same court found McCrery in contempt in a case that involved non-payment of child support.

McCrery is also the author of the book “Goodnight, Sleep Tight,” which is a book about overcoming sleep problems. In the “About the Author” section it says she was born in San Jose, Calif. in 1969 and made her home in Dallas since the early 1980s. It also says she has two ones, one who is in the U.S. Navy and the other who is much younger, referring to Camden.

    This info shouldnt be all over the internet its invasion of privacy putting court records on her so the whole world has acess to their social security numbers and vital information.The father has not been accused but court records show all his vital information.

    1. michelle says:

      wow, I have no issue with their pasts being reported on, but their ssns? that is ridiculous and a major privacy breach…even little Camden’s is avaiable and you know some con artist will use it to their advantage…

      1. alicia perex says:

        ok i did not now the little ones social security number was public! either one’s social security number should be private!!

    2. Sabrina says:

      Court records are public information. In Maryland you can run anyone’s name to see criminal and cilvil cases and dispositions.. Don’t violate law and no one needs to know who you are. It’s not like they posted her credit report.

      Court records are public…anyone can view them on request. Any private information is redacted.

  2. ssal says:

    Who cares about the father’s rights – he is a low-life in jail. I am sure he is white trash just like Camden’s mother. If DSS had stepped in and taken the baby and put him up for adoption maybe none of this would have happened.

    1. Harry B. says:

      Are we getting a bit racial here? White trash? What does a persons color have to do with this? Shame on you!!!

      1. Donna says:

        Not racial…its a perjorative mostly used by other whites to put down people they believe to be below them. Never heard or heard of it being used by other races.

    2. Cindy Small says:

      court records are public info, and the father died in a motorcycle accident a few years ago, so maybe you should read the facts before you say anything, they should reinstate the death penalty in NH!! She should die like she killed that poor boy!!

  3. travis says:

    (rights) what rights did the little boy have tell me? hurt a child long prison,never mind kill one the only right you should have is to meet your maker.let him deride the rest and may he not have mercy on your soul. and for dss they done well for sum and bad for others ive seen both so dont talk like you know. unless i know your a fortune teller

  4. Laura says:

    Court records are public information that anyone has the right to view. I would that this would be the LEAST of the concerns here….

  5. CJ Lanzim says:

    Mindy MCcey Should get what she Deserves I cannot Believe a Mother would do that to her own Kid and the father denying he is the father is even Worse this is such a Sad Situation

  6. diane osborne says:

    i’m just happy she’s not NEAR my home town. south berwick maine. glad your caught super happy. JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED. support from other’s would have been a better out come for you then what you did here. rest in peace CAMDEN ……

    1. Catina says:

      One could only hope that Justice will be SERVED. But in other cases where the mother has done such a terrible act ended up getting sent to a mental hospital on the tax payers dollar. Look at freakin’ Andrea Yates she murdered all 5 of her children and she is sitting in a mental hospital on OUR dollar when in reality she should have been FRIED along time ago. I REALLY hope that this women gets a death sentence as well as ANYONE that murders a child.

      1. kevin says:

        I agree with you Catina. She should be “fried”. …After it is determined that Camdens death was directly caused by an act of her own volition. If it was some sort of freakish happening which caused his demise then I can understand her actions. I don’t condone them or agree that she handled it properly,but I can come to terms with it and even feel some compassion. She’s a three time loser as it is and she will live with her decisions until she herself becomes dust. Let her suffer with that for a piece… Until she begs for something to release her from her misery anyways.

      2. Eva Lilly S says:

        You americans..”frying” helps no one. God bless his soul, hope there` s a lesson to all this…

    Don’t blame it on Americans, Eva, not everyone feels the same way. This case is very tragic and sad to me, the victim being the young boy. I am not going to judge.

    1. mellissa says:

      i believe she was talking about the spelling as you see she had quoted it

  9. blackbear1 says:

    Eva, watch the talk about Americans!! People from countries no bigger than most of our states are in no position to be offering advise.

  10. Me says:

    With lowlife parents like these, this poor kid never had a chance. RIP Little Angel. You are in a much nicer place now.

  11. TONIKA WILLIAMS says:

    I SOME WAHT AGREE WITH EVERYONE WHO IS COMMENTING ON THE DEATH OF A PRECIOUS SOUL. I HAVE THREE GIRLES. AND THEY ARE MY LIFE IF I WAS TO GO INTO A DEPRESSION MOD OR TRY KILLING MY CHILDREN I WOULD NOT LIKE TO LIVE , I WOULD LIKE THE LAW TO TAKE MY LIFE OR I WILL TAKE IT MYSELF. HOW A MOTHER CAN LIVE WITH THEMSELVE. KNOWING THAT THEY KILLED THIER OWN CHILDREN LET ALONE THAT YOU KNOW YOU HAD LEGAL PROBLEMS SO YOU SHOULD HAVE MADE BETTER CHOICES WITH YOUR LIFE ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE CHILDREN THESE PRECIOUS SOULS DO NOT ASK TO BE HERE THEY ASK TO BE LOVED UNCONDITONALY WHEN THIS FOOL GOES TO JAIL THE IN PRISON ARE GOING TO TEAR HER APART BECAUSE THE WOMEN IN PRISON CANNOT SEE THEIR CHILDREN.

    Look at this woman’s sad face. It was a sad life in America. 42, no money, sell sex and drug for money, stupid to give her son overdose cough drops to lead his death. She probably has no money to seek for doctor’s help. We all know the hospital’s first question is “if you have insurance? ” and sign a paper your will responsible for the bill if your insurance not paying. She probably has no money for his funeral. She chose the simple and cheap way to dump his body. Only in America! People, Wake up! How many this kind people are out there? I haven’t forgot the news of a 31 years old woman sentenced last week by putting her baby girl in microwave oven. Horrify!

  13. Carolyn Janosco says:

    you can’t blaim this on lack of insurance or anything else. Stop making excuses for this woman!! She is sick & twisted and people like that should not be allowed to continue to drain our society. If the US inforced the death penalty or came up with a facility to dump all of those sick twisted people that take anothers life for NO reason (like an island they can’t get off to harm anyone ever again) instead of our tax dollars supporting them we would not have as much deabt. I would like to see the bill for all the people serving life sentences in the US for one year of housing, food & medical care! Us law abbiding citizens don’t get that why should they? My heart breaks for this young boy whos mother was a professional looser! How can anyone take teh life out of a small child?? NO EXCUSES!! If she was that messed up someone should have taken this poor boy from her before she murdered him!!!
