Abandoned Algonquin Woman Ordered Returned To Illinois
The court's order, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel, found that the State of Illinois "wishes to retain jurisdiction of (Cameron) and has obtained a suitable placement that will provide appropriate services upon her return to Illinois." Cameron's mother, 45 year-old Eva Cameron, has admitted leaving her daughter in a Caryville, TN, bar last month claiming she couldn't get State help in Illinois to care for her daughter.
Illinois authorities have brought no charges against Eva Cameron, however, WBIR-TV, Knoxville, TN, reported Wednesday that next month the District Attorney's office in Tennessee will ask a grand jury to consider charging Eva Cameron with "willful exploitation of an impaired adult". That's a felony offense in the state.
There's no information yet about what agency in Illinois will assume responsibility for Lynn Cameron nor where she will be cared for.
