An elementary school teacher and mother of three from Mississippi intentionally drove her SUV into a lake with her two-year-old daughter in the car, police say.

On September 21, 34-year-old Cari Campbell Cullum allegedly backed her SUV off a boat ramp at the Columbus Lock and Dam with her toddler daughter inside.

Authorities at the Columbus Police Department don’t believe it was an accident.

Police Chief Fred Shelton said: ‘This is a tragic case and we believe this was not an accident.’

According to a press release from Columbus Information Officer Joe Dillon, Cullum is the mother of three children. The press release states police believe she intentionally drove her vehicle into Columbus Lake with her youngest child inside the vehicle.

“Following a detailed investigation, we have charged Ms. Cullum with attempted murder. This is a tragic case, and we believe this was not an accident. Our investigation continues into the incident. Her children are in the care of another person at this time,” Shelton said in the press release.

When police arrived, Cullum and her daughter had already been pulled from the car by a friend. The friend told police he had to break a car window to remove the pair. The incident was called into 911 at 3:19 a.m. on Sept. 21, according to the press release.

The press release states the car was in the water on the boat ramp at the Columbus Lake off Wilkins Wise Road when the CPD and Columbus Fire and Rescue officials arrived. The car had been backed into the lake. Police are not saying how much of the car was submerged.
