(WLNS) – After being released on bond for the death of her daughter, Melissa Mitin is under investigation again. This time involving the disappearance of her infant son. According to Ingham County Prosecutor Stuart Dunnings III, it was verified that Mitin was pregnant a second time, and after being examined on December 16, health officials say the fetus was healthy.
Mitin first appeared in the 55th District Court in Mason, where she was granted a $5,000 bond. After making bond, she was released to her parents where they agreed to house her at home.
“In this case, a long time resident of the community; her parents agreed to continue her living in their home monitoring her and I think the bond that the court gave was reasonable,” says Dunnings.
While living with her parents, Mitin became pregnant and hid the pregnancy a second time.
When Mitin appeared in court on January 13 she was no longer pregnant, and the baby was no where to be found. When questioned about what happened, she remained quiet and indicated her inability to remember the events leading to her son’s disappearance.
Mitin was held in contempt and remanded to the custody of the Sheriff after her refusal to answer questions. The Ingham County Prosecutors Office filed a motion on December 14, pending the homicide case and her bond has since been revoked.
Investigators are working to find answers, and are investigating a lead.
“There was a deceased baby found in the Detroit area, and we are of course looking into that but to say there’s a connection would be premature at this point in time,” Dunnings says.
