At the scene, Wood told police her child had a lifelong history of seizures, and police did find a partially-used prescription of a medicine used to control and treat seizures, according to court documents.

However, records from court documents also said authorities found multiples types of drugs at the home that field tested positive for cocaine, LSD and MDMA.

Court documents indicated the drugs were “within reach of any child who would be inside the apartment.”

Police also found the home in “very poor/uninhabitable conditions” that included foul stenches, trash piles, decaying and spoiled food, and “what appeared to be human feces smeared on the window, walls and toys,” according to court documents.

Court documents showed police learned two other children besides the victim also lived in the home, and police also learned from Wood that one of the children slept in a “five-by-five foot area on the kitchen floor,” and the child who died slept on a loveseat with a missing cushion.

The doctor also confirmed that the child had a seizure disorder, but that there were “no abnormalities in his brain indicating this [was] the cause of his death.”
