Custodial dad, girlfriend charged in assault of 4-year-old son on life support; what happened to Mom? (McNairy County, Tennessee)

We posted on this case before dad was identified. Now he is identified as ANTHONY DILLWORTH, and he is obviously custodial for this ongoing abuse not to have been detected earlier. Notice that there is STILL not a single word on what happened to the mother of this child, or how or why she was shoved out of the picture. When two obviously abusive people manage to eliminate the mother, that question should be raised--but seldom is in the media.
