Indy Mom Accused of Giving Hydrocholoric Acid To Daughter With Autism

IMPD says the 28-year-old woman admitted to the child’s father that she put a few drops of hydrochloric acid and water purifying solution in her daughter's drinks.

INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indianapolis woman is accused of giving hydrochloric acid to her daughter to "help" cure her autism.

IMPD says the 28-year-old woman admitted to the child’s father that she put a few drops of hydrochloric acid and water purifying solution in her daughter's drinks. Investigators were then called to the 2300 block of South Randolph Street Saturday afternoon to remove the child.

According to the police report, the woman said she read about the mixture on a Facebook group.

No charges were specifically listed against the mother in the police report.

Hydrochloric acid is corrosive, and concentrated forms release acidic mists that are also dangerous. If the acid or mist comes into contact with the skin, eyes, or internal organs, the damage can be irreversible or even fatal in severe cases.
