35-year-old Arthur Phillip Freeman, of Hawthorn, Australia, has been charged in the death of his 4-year-old daughter Darcey Iris Freeman. He stands accused of throwing her off the West Gate Bridge in Melbourne. To put that in perspective to us Yanks the bridge is 190 feet above the Yarra River at its highest point.
Darcey was taken from the river alive but died at a hospital four hours later.
It’s also alleged that Freeman had his two sons, ages 7 and 23 months, with him when he threw his daughter from the bridge.
Freeman is said to be mentally unfit to assist with investigators.
Thanks to Erin for the tip.
