RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Raleigh police are continuing to investigate the death of a 2-year-old boy, retrieving cellphones, notebooks, broken glass and razor blades from the motel room where his body was found. 

WRAL-TV reported (bit.ly/Rr40Us) those details were released Monday in search warrants involving the death of Joshua Callahan, whose body was found Sept. 26 a Super 8 Motel in Raleigh.  

His mother, 29-year-old Michelle Danielle Harpster was charged the next day with killing him. Police say Harpster tried to kill herself. 

She remained in a hospital Monday.  

The child's father, Mark Callahan of North Port, Fla., has said he was seeking full custody of Joshua. He says that two days before Joshua died, a judge ruled Florida courts would handle the custody case.
