Posting allegedly by mom of dead Cleveland 3-year-old complains of 'problems' she can't deal with

CLEVELAND - Cleveland police are investigating an alleged online posting by the mother of a 3-year-old whose body was found Monday evening that describes wanting to "put the child up for adoption" because of problems she could not deal with.

The posting, allegedly by Camilia Terry of Cleveland, was posted on a Yahoo comment site Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012 -- five full days before the body of her 3-year-old son Emilliano was found.

The posting said, "I have a three year old toddler I want to put up for adoption."

It goes on to say that the child "has problems that I don't know how to deal with." It concludes by saying it's "hard to find toddler adoption agencies."

Cleveland police are investigating whether Camilia Terry is the actual author of the posting.

Meanwhile, at least 16 additional music video postings on Youtube.com show Camilia Terry describing her life.

In one, she laments "life has got me down and I need a friend." In another, Terry said she "has been going through a lot of things, up late at night and can't sleep."

And in a third, she describes a teenage life of drugs, losing her home and having her first child at age 14.

Cuyahoga County Child Services confirmed that Camilia Terry has been seen by child welfare workers since she was 8 years old and a neglect allegation was confirmed.

And this is not the first time that she has been investigated for abuse or neglect regarding her children. Records show in 2009 and again in 2011, child welfare officials responded to allegations.

As recently as July 2012, child welfare officials confirmed they began seeing the family based on additional complaints.
