Mayberry, the fictional town on The Andy Griffith Show is said to be based upon Griffith’s hometown of Mt. Airy, NC. The Town of Mt. Airy, NC now has a population of 10,388, considerably more than one stoplight, and it’s fair share of crime. One wonders what “Sheriff Andy Taylor” would have made of this.
Atkinson says authorities were called to (Suspect 2)’s house Friday after a report of an infant in cardiac arrest. The baby was later pronounced dead at a hospital, and the sheriff says authorities became concerned and charged the couple after noticing injuries on the baby’s body.
They are both charged with Second Degree Murder.
I will never understand why anyone would harm a baby.
