“Him and his mom were like two peas in a pod, that’s how I know it wasn’t her. She didn’t know she did that to him. It was just something inside of her that did that. I can’t say she’s a bad person,” said Michael Barner to WKMG. “He was a great kid, not just a good kid, but a great kid, A kid you would want if you have kids, very respectful.”
“If I would have seen this spiritual get inside her I probably could have helped her, but I didn’t see it,” Elandia Green, mother of 26-year-old Labreaunne Wilson said after telling WKMG that her daughter had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia when she was just 10-years-old.
She stated that her daughter was getting help regularly.
Wilson was arrested on Wednesday and charged with first degree murder for the drowning death of her 6-year-old son Avion Borner earlier in the day.
Wilson was seen on surveillance video leaving the Key Suites on Orange Blossom Trail dragging Avion at 2:25 pm. A mother told investigators that everything had seemed normal shortly before then as her daughter had been playing with Avion. Abruptly Wilson had evidently stated they had to leave.
Five minutes later the footage shows Wilson returning to the property without her son.
It's not until 2:58 pm that Wilson is seen leaving the property once more, crossing the street to Lake Tyler and then returning carrying her son's limp body over her left shoulder.
She is seen emerging once again at 4:30 pm and once more crossing the street.
Witnesses stated that she removed all of her clothing before entering the lake. She was heard repeatedly stating, "God forgive me," and refused to leave the lake until Orange County Fire and Rescue members arrived and removed her.
The affidavit states that Wilson was heard by one of the Orange County Fire and Rescue paramedics stating, "I think I killed my child."
Inside of the room that she shared with her son, her mother discovered Avion's body inside of the bathtub reportedly with foam around his mouth. She preformed CPR until deputies took over. Paramedics soon arrived and took over from the deputies as Avion was transported to Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Wilson was transported to the Orlando Regional Medical Center for evaluation and soon discharged.
A mental health evaluation has been ordered.
