LONDON — An 11-year-old girl who was found dead in her London home in October 2015 by her mother who had overdosed on heroin was actually found dead of a heroin-related overdose, according to the inquest into her death.
In his opening statement, Coroner Dr. David Anderson told jurors that police had to be “very careful” about their interpretation of the case.
“It’s very important to note that it’s a very rare case, but in this case the case is very different to any other,” he said.
“The police were very careful to get to the bottom of the circumstances of this child’s death, and they were very concerned about the possibility that she was dead for some time prior to her death, as they believed that the child was being used as a drug laboratory.”
They had the child’s body, they went in there, they removed the child, they found the child dead.
That’s all very careful and careful work.
“Dr. Anderson told the inquest that the death was ruled a homicide and the child had been left in the care of relatives.
The inquest also heard that the mother had told police about the child suffering from withdrawal symptoms, including nightmares, anxiety, and depression, but had not reported them to the police.
In September 2015, the mother told a friend that she believed the child to be in the custody of an adult, and that her mother had overdubbed heroin and had not called police.
According to the coroner, the woman also said she was concerned about how her son would react to the death.
After an initial search of the home, police found a dead body, which was taken to a forensic lab to be examined.
The police report stated that the infant was “not breathing or alive.””
The coroner also found evidence of the mother’s death from a fentanyl overdose.
She was also found with a small amount of cocaine in her body,” Dr. Anderson said.
The inquest also learned that a postmortem examination found the mother with a fentanyl-containing powder in her system.
Police also found heroin in the mother and that the police report did not mention the substance in the child.
At the time of her death in October of 2015, investigators had not identified the child as a victim of drug-related abuse, but they were now looking into whether the child may have been murdered.
The mother was charged with manslaughter, but pleaded guilty in December of 2016 to possession of heroin with intent to supply.
She has since been sentenced to nine years in prison.
The child’s mother, who is now in her 40s, has pleaded guilty to possession with intent.
Dr. Andrew White, a professor at King’s College London, told the BBC that the coroner was correct in ruling the mother was a suspect in the case because of her “very unusual history” of drug use.”
We’ve got this little girl, this 11-y-old who is a child, and this parent, who had a history of drug abuse, so this really does seem to fit into the profile of what you would expect to find when you’re dealing with an 11- or 12-year old,” he told the British Broadcasting Corporation.”
If this child was under her parents care and had the chance to go to a doctor and be tested for drugs, it is not inconceivable that they would test positive.
“White said that there was also a possible link to her own mental health, as she had previously been referred to a specialist for depression and had been diagnosed with anxiety.”
She’s got some kind of mental illness. “
It’s not that she’s going through withdrawal symptoms.
She’s got some kind of mental illness.
She can have bipolar disorder, but that’s the one thing that is absolutely clear here.”
In December, the court sentenced the mother to two years in jail.
