Woman Who Led Investigators to Stepson’s Body Found Dead
Kansas City, Kansas

Authorities are investigating the reported suicide of a Kansas woman who led a private investigator to the decomposing remains of her 5-year-old stepson three months ago. Emily Glass was found dead with a shotgun at her feet, along with three suicide notes in the home according to authorities. Glass had reported her stepson, Lucas, missing just three months ago and eventually led a private investigator to the boy's decomposing remains under a nearby bridge. 

Police arrested Glass on suspicion of lying to authorities, but she was freed.

Should this woman have been allowed to leave jail? Did authorities do a good enough job of investigating this woman? What would you have done had it been your son?
