SUPERIOR TWP., Mich. (WWJ) – Authorities in Washtenaw County are investigating a parental kidnapping.
Sheriff’s officials say 3-month-old Soloman Brandon is the focus of a custody dispute, and believe that 21-year old Rachel McPherson, the child’s mother, took him from his grandmother, who is also the infant’s caretaker.
