The boy was discovered when Taijuan Littleton, a Rent-a-Center employee, called to schedule a delivery. He grew concerned when he couldn’t get a mother on the phone. His concern was enough to send him round to the place to investigate.

According to reports by Crimefeed, when Littleton peered in the window he spotted the body of 43-year-old Shaleena Hamilton. When Littleton convinced the young child to open the door, he told the deliveryman that he “couldn’t wake up his mother.” Littleton took the young boy to wait in his truck while police investigated the scene. According to

Neighbours reportedly heard the boy crying and asking his mother to wake up and crying out for food. They did not realise the severity of the situation.

Littleton took the young boy to wait in his truck while police investigated the scene. According to Syracuse, the woman died of natural causes. When Police learned of Bryan’s traumatic few days, they rallied together to collect Christmas presents for the child. It started with a red bicycle but as the story spread so too did the donation of gifts.

 

“Hopefully, it will make his Christmas a little bit better,” Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda told some family members Monday as the collection of gifts was presented.
