A ten-year-old girl in Wisconsin was found dead on a farm field a day after disappearing from her mother’s apartment after leaving a suicide note and taking pills.
Kodie B. Dutcher had not been seen since 4:00 PM Monday afternoon when she had a video chat with her mother before her body was found Tuesday morning.
IIt is not clear who took care of Kodie or whether she was home alone during that conversation. They talked about an upcoming camping trip that her mother said was excited.
But at 4:30 pm, her mother claims that she returned home and discovered that she had left the house.
The mother, who is not mentioned by name, called the police and told them that the girl had left a note saying, “Mom, I love you, but I can’t. Bye.’
It was also reported that Kodie may have been taking prescription pills, but police were unable to confirm what the drugs were.
On Tuesday, after dozens of local residents searched for the girl, she was found on a farm.

Police said on Tuesday that Kodie and her mother moved to the area in April and she had no chance of making friends at her new school before students were sent home because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Her family has not made a public statement. They were among the people who searched for her Monday evening and Tuesday before she was found.
