Daniel Corby
Birth: Mar., 2008
Death: Mar. 31, 2012
Carmel Valley
Monterey County
California, USA

On March 31, 37-year-old Patricia Corby drove to a San Diego police station and told authorities she had killed her son, Daniel, by filling a bathtub and holding the boy under water until he died. Police found the boy's lifeless body, still wet, wrapped in a blanket in her car's back seat. After her arrest, Corby told authorities that she had no life because her existence was dedicated to her son.

Corby was a stay-at-home mother pushed to the edge handling a difficult child with autism. Apparently after she drowned Daniel, his mother unsuccessfully tried to drown herself before driving her son to a nearby police station. Corby was described as being in a state of shock as she watched officers trying to revive her son.

The boy's father was at work at the time of his son's death. Neighbors said he is devastated and has moved from the apartment. He said the family was $70,000 in debt due to Daniel's care, but he would have spent any amount of money for his son, and he and Daniel's teachers all felt he was making progress.

Corby was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison when sentenced January 28, 2013 in San Diego County Superior Court.
