    A mother from Tennessee has allegedly admitted to strangling her 12-year-old son, Esteban Sylvester, and attempting to do the same to her 4-year-old son, according to police. She has been arrested and prosecuted.


    According to Police Report

    Around 10 p.m., Esteban’s father discovered the child unconscious at their Barksdale Lane home, according to Shelbyville Police last Monday. The boy’s mother, Patricia Sylvester, 32 years old, and his brother, Rafael Sylvester, 4, were not present at the time. According to the Shelbyville Times-Gazette, Esteban was the subject of resuscitation attempts by Shelbyville Fire Rescue and Bedford County EMS, but the little youngster was later declared dead at Vanderbilt Bedford Hospital.

    Rafael received an Endangered Child Alert on Tuesday morning from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, who turned their attention to Patricia and her youngest son, according to NBC15. Soon after that notice was sent out, Patricia was taken to SPD headquarters to be questioned.

    Joyce Sylvester, Patricia’s mother, and Esteban’s grandmother, expressed her shock at the information to NC5. She described her daughter as a very loving daughter, which leads her to shock upon knowing the situation.

    Former Bedford County Schools teacher Heidi Mann told WSMV4 that she enjoyed having Esteban as a student for two years.  She added that there are a lot of happy and humorous recollections from those years Esteban was in school. Esteban was a source of light in their classroom.

    According to reports, Patricia was detained and charged with Criminal Homicide and Attempted Criminal Homicide. Her bond will be set at $2 million when she is discharged from a nearby hospital following a mental health assessment, according to the Shelbyville Times-Gazette. It is still unknown if Patricia has hired a lawyer to represent her.
