A Maryland mother was found early on Friday pushing her dead 3-year-old boy on a park swing, authorities said.

Deputies responded to a call around 7 a.m. to check on a woman who witnesses said had been pushing a child for hours on a swing at Wills Memorial Park in La Plata, about 35 miles (55 km) south of Washington, D.C., said Charles County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Diane Richardson.

One witness told deputies she found it strange that the woman had been pushing the child for an unusually long period of time, possibly since the day before, Richardson said.

When the officers arrived they found the 24-year-old woman still pushing the child in the swing, and they realized immediately that the boy was dead, Richardson said.

The child had no signs of obvious trauma, she said, and had been dead for at least several hours.

The office of the chief medical examiner in Baltimore will perform an autopsy on the boy.

The investigation is ongoing.

A CNN panel was equally appalled and furious about a video that was shown at the conservative conference held at a hotel owned by Donald Trump that showed the president slaughtering church worshipers who rrepresented CNN, NPR, MSNBC and Black Lives Matter in the "Church of Fake News."

Speaking with hosts John Avlon and Alisyn Camerota, former President Bill Clinton communications director Joe Lockhart seemed visibly angry that it was shown at a conservative sanctioned event that featured Sarah Sanders and Don Trump Jr. as speakers.

Asked by Avlon, "Has there been anything remotly like this in American political history or something truly new and dangerous?"

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough marveled that another attorney for President Donald Trump had fallen under criminal investigation.

Rudy Giuliani, the former U.S. Attorney and New York City mayor, is under investigation for his role in Trump's scheme to pressure Ukraine into assisting his re-election campaign after the arrest of two of his associates.

"Wait, another lawyer of Donald Trump's now being investigated?" the "Morning Joe" host said. "God, why is it that everybody around him ends up in jail? Is that a coincidence? Because it's unbelievable, seriously, and his lawyers end up in jail. His fixers end up in jail. Wow! At least he's got that U.S. ambassador behind him."
