I Miss New Mexico

We haven't had any good New Mexico stories lately. This story is sad, but has some classic New Mexico in it.

The story is about a 15 month old baby who died after his mom lost him in a field when she fell asleep while stargazing. That seems kind of weird, especially knowing that it was near Encino, where I don't think anything good has ever happened. But then it ends like this:

Deputies said the boy and his mother had been seen along U.S. 60 before dawn Tuesday. The woman, wearing no clothes, showed up a few hours later in Encino and told authorities her baby was missing.

Why did she wander into town naked? Who the hell knows.
