Documents: Mother arrested in kidnapping case, wanted son to ‘die in her arms’
SEATTLE (Q13FOX) – The mother of a 27-year-old man was arrested after allegedly kidnapping him from a hospital.
Court documents show Lorraine Phillips was attempting to kidnap her son, who was suffering with a severe brain infection, from a hospital.
Back in October, Bret Bohn suffered insomnia, hallucinations and seizures.
He was taken to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis.
Court documents show his parents disagreed with the treatment, saying it was causing him more harm than good.
Those documents claim Phillips intentionally interrupted Bohn’s care and jeopardized his life because of her belief.
A Facebook group was set up to remove Bohn from the hospital.
In December, Phillips’ attorney went to police, saying she wanted to take her son from the hospital and have him “die in her arms.”
According to court documents, the attorney also claimed Phillips said she “hopes he kills himself.”
On April 22, Bohn was being transferred to a different room when his nurse was pushed out of the elevator and he went missing.
Police drove to the hotel where Phillips was staying and received a tip Bohn was taken to the Neighborhood Clinic.
According to officers, Phillips admitted to taking Bohn away from the hospital and wanted him treated for drug withdrawal at the clinic.
Phillips was arrested for suspicion of kidnapping but has not been charged.
