PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. - A Maryland mother has confessed to placing sewing needles in candy that her 5-year-old daughter had received while trick-or-treating, Maryland State Police said.
Holly Waters told FOX 5 in November that she discovered the needles when her daughter asked for a piece of candy the day after Halloween.
“I don’t know how anybody could do that,” Waters said. “It just baffles me and just makes me really upset. Why would you do that? I just don’t get it.”
At the time, police went to the neighborhood in Prince Frederick and checked for any similar incidents, but found none.
The motive is not clear, and there is a pending misdemeanor charge against the mother.
