Pennsylvania Woman Arrested After Her Children Her Alibi About Their Sibling’s Death: “Stop Lying, Mommy!”

On August 29th, 2021, Lancaster, Pennsylvania woman Autumn Lynn Vossler reported her 5-year-old son, Harmon, missing. Many hours later, police discovered the boy’s body in the Susquehanna River. It was initially filed as an accidental death.

According to Lancaster Online, the mom of four told police that she had been walking along the river with her children when they began running ahead of her. Vossler alleges that she realized that one of them was missing when she finally caught up to them, and saw Harmon being “carried away by a stream and into the river.” During her explanation about her whereabouts when the incident occurred, police camera footage shows one of Vossler’s children saying, “Stop lying, Mommy! We never saw you- we snuck out of the house!”

After reviewing the case and investigating it further, the Susquehanna Regional Police Department arrested Vossler December 29th. She’s reportedly been charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter and four counts of felony endangering the welfare of children. Court records report that the 29-year-old is currently being held at Lancaster County Prison on a $200,000 bond and is scheduled to reappear in court on January 18th.
