Carmel Valley mother arrested on suspicion of killing son

By CITY NEWS SERVICE
A woman who went to a San Diego police substation March 31 claiming she needed help is in custody on suspicion of killing her 4-year-old son earlier that day, a police lieutenant said.

The boy’s mother flagged down a patrol sergeant driving out of the San Diego Police Department Northwestern Division sub-station parking lot at 9:45 a.m., said Lt. Ernie Herbert in the Homicide Unit.

She asked for help and directed the sergeant to her parked car, Herbert said. The sergeant saw the child was not breathing, began CPR and medics determined the child was deceased when they arrived.

“The investigation has revealed Patricia Corby, 34, took her son’s life inside their apartment in the Torrey Hills area of Carmel Valley, then brought him to the police station,’’ Herbert said. Corby was the boy’s primary care provider since the father was at work at the time of the crime.

Police would not release the motive for the crime. An autopsy would determine the cause of death, he said.

Colby was booked into the Las Colinas Detention Center, he said.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the San Diego police Homicide Unit, at (619) 531-2293, or Crime Stoppers, at (888) 580-8477.
