Illinois mother and child found dead in car in pond

ROXANA, Ill. (AP) — Police in suburban St. Louis are investigating after a woman and her young son were found dead inside a vehicle that drove into a pond.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the victims were inside a car submerged in about 10 feet of water near Roxana, Illinois. Madison County Sheriff’s Lt. Brian Koberna says the vehicle was pulled from the water early Wednesday after a witness reported seeing headlights bobbing in the pond.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office identified the victims as 34-year-old Ashly Maynard, and her 7-year-old son, Vincent Maynard, who lived in the Roxana area.

Koberna says the investigation into how the vehicle ended up in the pond is “wide open.”

Roxana is about 20 miles  northeast of St. Louis.
