Michelle Lodzinski was convicted guilty of the murder of Timothy Wiltsey, her 5-year-old son. Michelle Lodzinski is most known as the mother of a 5-year-old girl who was killed.
Timothy William “Timmy” Wiltsey, a 5-year-old toddler from South Amboy, New Jersey, went missing from a carnival in nearby Sayreville on May 25, 1991, according to his mother, Michelle Lodzinski.
Wiltsey was not discovered when officials searched the area where the festival was happening. His bones were recovered 11 months later in the marshlands of adjacent Edison, near an office park where Lodzinski had previously worked, across the Raritan River.
Michelle Lodzinski Bio/Wiki
Unlike her son Timothy William “Timmy” Wiltsey, Michelle Lodzinski’s biography has yet to be included in Wikipedia’s official source. On Timmy’s wiki page, however, there is some information regarding Michelle.
Michelle Lodzinski of Laurence Harbor, New Jersey, met George Wiltsey when she was 16 years old and began dating him soon after. Since his father had become hostile, Lodzinski returned to her house with her young son six months after giving birth. Lodzinski’s friends, relatives, and professional sitters kept an eye on Wiltsey on a regular basis. She later fabricated her own child’s disappearance, which was later discovered dead.

In 2021, the New Jersey Supreme Court heard the Lodzinski case. After Chief Justice Stuart Rabner recused himself, the other justices were deadlocked, leaving her most recent appeal, which affirmed her conviction, in place.
The Supreme Court was persuaded to adopt a rarely used rule that allows for a rehearing with a different judge who is temporarily designated as a justice to hear the case in order to reach a decision. At the end of the year, a small majority of the court overturned her conviction, concluding that the evidence was insufficient to condemn her by a reasonable jury.
Michelle Lodzinski Son: Timothy Wiltsey Murder
She changed her account about how her son went missing within a month of his kidnapping, and her cold demeanor on the few occasions she spoke publicly about the case made her a suspect. Later in the decade, she was found guilty of inventing her own kidnapping and then stealing a laptop from a former employer, further cementing the public’s negative perception of her.
Prosecutors would not charge her until the 2010s, by which time she had remarried, had two more children, and traveled to Florida, where she was apprehended in 2014. Wiltsey’s bones had deteriorated to the point that the cause of death could not be determined, and no one had seen him in a long time save Lodzinski, making it difficult to connect her to any wrongdoing or pinpoint when and how it occurred.
