A Charlotte woman was arrested for the death of her 6 year old child. William DaShawn Hamilton was found dead in Decatur, Ga. in 1999 after his mother, Teresa Ann Bailey Black, left Charlotte and returned without him. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip from about William’s disappearance from someone who knew the boy and his mother.
Teresa Black, 45, was taken into custody near her home in Phoenix, and is awaiting extradition to Georgia.
Black is charged with two counts of felony murder, two counts of cruelty to children, aggravated assault and concealing the death of another.
Anyone with information or who may have known William or his mother is asked to call the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office at 404-371-2444.
