AUGUSTA, Maine — A family friend said the body of the boy left along a dirt road in Maine is back in Texas for a funeral to be held this weekend.

Shirley Miller, a longtime friend in Texas, said yesterday that the body of 6-year-old Camden Hughes is back in Texas.

The funeral is scheduled for Saturday.

Camden’s body was released Friday by the Maine medical examiner.

The boy’s mother, Julianne McCrery, of Irving, Texas, is being held in New Hampshire, where she is charged with killing the boy before leaving him in South Berwick, Maine.

She was first detained in Massachusetts.

Miller said McCrery’s father, her other son, and the son’s father traveled to Maine to retrieve Camden’s remains. She said they did not meet with McCrery.
