Nyia Parler

A Philadelphia mother who abandoned her quadriplegic son in the woods with only a blanket and a Bible was hospitalized following her arrest in Maryland.

Nyia Parler, 41, was taken to a Maryland hospital for unspecified reasons after she was arrested by Maryland police on Saturday.

Police say Parler wheeled her “non-verbal” 21-year-old quadriplegic son into the woods along Cobbs Creek Parkway near Catherine Street on Monday.

“She pushes him about 150 yards from the highway into the wooded area, takes him out of wheelchair, lays him on the ground, puts a blanket over him and leaves a Bible with him, and then just walks away,” Lt. John Walker told NBCphiladelphia.

Parler then caught a bus to Maryland to be with her boyfriend. “We know she left for Maryland on Monday to go see her boyfriend on a bus,” Walker told NBC10.

The next day, Parler updated her Facebook page with a photo of herself and an unidentified man. “I’m so happy,” she wrote in the comments section.

On Friday a passerby found Parler’s son in the woods. The victim who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy as a child had survived 5 nights of cold temperatures and rain.

“They found [him] about 100 yards off the roadway here, laying in leaves. He’s got a blanket over him and a Bible on his chest,” Philadelphia Police Lt. John Walker told NBCphiladelphia.

Walker said a wheelchair was found about 10 feet away from the victim.

Investigators say he likely would have died if the Good Samaritan didn’t find him when he did.

“A lot of things could’ve happened out there,” Walker told NBC10. “Obviously he’s in the middle of a wooded area. You have wild animals out there. You never know what’s going to happen.”

The victim was taken to a Philadelphia hospital where he was treated for a pressure sore on his back, dehydration, malnutrition and exposure to the elements.

Several aunts are with him at his bedside.

Police said a school where the victim is a student called an aunt after the victim missed class for a few days. The aunt called Parler, who lied and said the victim was safe with her in Maryland.

Parler also has a 16-year-old son who is staying with relatives, according to Walker.

Investigators said Parler will be extradited to Philadelphia after she is released from the hospital.

She will be charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, kidnapping, and a laundry list of other assorted charges.

    Women like this who have kids and don’t care for them or care about them need to be spayed as soon as they turn a certain age. If she didn’t want them she could’ve gave him up and kept chasing behind her “man” with no problem. News like this make me sick and I feel like the world is coming to an end. Just pitiful!

  • SummerBaby

    This is so sad!! I know it can get hard for a care giver, but obviously they had other family members that could’ve helped out & relived some of the stress.

    :no: So cruel

  • whitty hutton

    so, lemme try and make some sense of this bullshyt…she has a severely disabled child at the young age of 20…feels like she was somehow robbed of a “normal” life due to his need for round the clock care. In her warped mind, this was a “merciful” act and she convinced herself that this was the “right” thing to do. the defense will plead insanity.

    never mind she could have worked with social services to make him a ward of the state, placed him in an institution, or any number of other HUMANE options that i’m certain she knew were available to her. this was pure dee selfishness and no matter the legal outcome, she should rot in hell for this shyt. left him out there like a damn bag of trash. folks treat dogs better than this.

    :mad: lookahere ragadey bitch. If you didn’t want the hassle of raising a special needs child then you had 72 hours in the hospital to make up your mind. There is a seat in hell waiting for you. Hope a roach crawls up you snatch and lays eggs. It would still be a better mother than you.

    Stuff like this makes me so :mad: You don’t have to harm or kill your child just because your lame azz doesn’t want to take care of him. Abandoning one child to death and leaving another with family to chase after dyck :smh: Karma will get her via the “justice” system.

    Good morning Roses :hi: DF had to get the kids off to school this am. He’s called 4 times already :smh: First he couldn’t find their umbrellas (I had already put them in their backpacks), then 10 minutes later he called and complained that Dragon13 hadn’t run the dishwasher last night like she was supposed to and she was running late and had an attitude, 3rd call was a complaint about traffic dropping Dragon13 off, then Dragon10 and Dragon3 wanted 2 different things for breakfast and Dragon3 was uncooperative because mommy wasn’t there and daddy wasn’t doing things right :rofl: AND Dragon10 almost missed the bus :facepalm: He’s like “is it like this every morning?” I told him 3 out of 5 mornings on average. He said he could never do this every morning, the same man that previously said I just need to relax and it can’t be that bad getting the kids together in the morning.

    How awful! All for some temporary raucous from a dude she needs to check his DNA cause they look like siblings.

  • pointhimout

    kids are off limit. that poor guy. I’m glad he survived being out there. He needs to see her cuz I bet in his mind, he’s wondering if she’s okay or why she left him. He’ll probably just cry after he gets to see her. Damn.
