Child safety seat concept. Isolated on white.

A Central Florida mother has now been separated from her children following the attempted coverup of a potential crime. A 3-year-old child who died late last week in Orlando was not the victim of a hit-and-run accident as her mother claimed, but of a homicide, the Medical Examiner’s Office ruled.

At the time of the alleged hit-and-run, the mother told police that her three year old daughter Yeliani Schwartz-Ojeda was hit by a black car around 9:30 PM. The Medical Examiner, however, found the child’s injuries inconsistent with being struck by a vehicle. The investigation is ongoing, but other children in the family have been removed from their mother’s care while she cooperates with authorities.
