Last Sunday, 2-year-old Sky Metalwala went missing. The boy’s mother Julia Biryukova made the claim that she left her son in the car unintended while she and her 4-year-old daughter walked a mile to get gasoline after their car ran out of fuel. She said that when they returned to the car her 2-year-old son was no where to be seen.
But since the boy went missing there has been some disturbing new evidence that is causing Sky’s mother Julia to be a person of interest.
First, the boys father, Solomon Metalwala, believes his ex is involved in the boys disappearance. He told ABC News, “I do believe that Julia has a, she’s responsible …It’s sad. Because if she can just cooperate, we can find where, where is our son.” He added that Julia had told him about an eerie dream saying. “In this dream she, she was strangling Sky. And it was very alarming.”
Then the Associated Press on Friday morning reported that after a test with Julia’s car they found that the car did not run out of gas and that there was no mechanical motive that would lead her to think that the car was out of fuel. They have also found out that Julia never went to the gas station at all — instead she walked around a nearby neighborhood.
But the oddest part of the tale? Apparently this story is a whole lot like an episode of the popular TV crime drama Law and Order.
In the episode in question — that police say is “strikingly similar in nature” to Julia’s story — a mother “tries to cover up the death of her child by saying he was taken from her car.”
And get this: her ex said that Law and Order was Julia’s favorite show. He added, “and the similarities are pretty similar and if she got that idea in her head that ‘I can make this happen,’ she’s not going to fear the consequences, because she doesn’t fear consequences.”
The timing is also suspicious. The episode entitled “Missing Pieces” originally aired on October 19th, and it just happen to be re-aired on Saturday night, the day before Sky went missing.
