Metro-East mother wrongly accused by state of beating son with frying pan

SWANSEA, Ill. (KMOV) -- A Metro-East mother is holding on to her children a little tighter these days after getting a terrible scare in the mail.

A letter from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services was accusing Howard of being her 15-year-old son with a frying pan.

The mother from Swansea thought the state was going to take her children away, so she called News 4’s Mike Colombo.
