The suspect has been charged with Felony Tampering with Witnesses, Reckless Conduct, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Eckersley was charged with Felony — Reckless Conduct in connection to the incident after she allegedly led police to the wrong location, away from the tent despite knowing where the baby was.

According to a family statement to WBZ-TV, Eckersley is the daughter of Red Sox legend Dennis Eckersley and has been living on the streets and woods of New Hampshire for the last six years. The Eckersley family goes on to say that they have begun the legal process to secure guardianship for the baby boy.
