Mother of murdered 14-year-old not cooperating with police

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Mahoning Coroner has not yet released details of how 14-year old Teddy Foltz died.

At a funeral service on Saturday, family and friends say they don't recognize the mother who police say is refusing to cooperate with the investigation into her son's death.

Friends who knew 32-year-old Shain Widdersheim say she changed after she began dating Zaryl Bush.

Bush is accused in the murder and rape of her son.

"I've spent time with her kids before she met him and that was her world, her children. That's what she led everybody to believe. That her kids were everything to her, and then I guess this man comes in and that's it," said Mollie Kloss.

Teddy's dad has set up the Teddy Foltz-Tedesco fund for prevention of child abuse. Contributions can be made at the PNC Bank on West Liberty Street in Hubbard.
