PBSO detectives assumed this death investigation from the Riviera Beach Police Department. 

Investigation determined that the child’s paternal aunt received a knock at her door.  Upon opening the door she discovered the child on the front doorstep in a car seat with no one else around.  The aunt was advised by other family members that the child needed help and should be brought to the hospital.  The aunt drove the child to St. Mary’s Medical Center where she was prounounced dead. 

The medical examiner determined that the cause of death is detemined to be fentanyl and cocaine intoxication with manner of death being homicide.
