Father Charged For Killing 3-Year-Old Son With Cocaine & Codeine [PHOTOS]
A Maryland man is most certainly going to have the worse Father’s Day of all-time after authorities are accusing him of killing his three-year-old son with a lethal mix of drugs.
Thomas E. Holland took his toddler to the hospital after police say the boy had been given cocaine, acetaminophen and codeine, where he was eventually pronounced dead.
Reports The Grio:
A toxicology report concluded the child’s cause of death was linked to toxic levels of drugs, including cocaine, acetaminophen and codeine, reports NBC Washington.
“Those results are showing there was such a concentration of [the] four drugs that our detectives and medical examiners believe there is no chance this child could have accidentally ingested them,” Lt. William Alexander, a spokesman for Prince George’s County Police, told the Washington Post.
The boy’s death occurred shortly after Holland had a court-ordered visit with him.
The Washington Post reports the boy’s mother had been seeking unpaid child support from Holland and that the 38-year-old denied being his father and did not attend the child’s funeral.
“It’s the most horrific and the most terrible thing I’ve ever experienced,” the boy’s great-grandfather Maurice Gaither told NBC.
Police are saying that the incident was no accident and Holland is facing charges of manslaughter and first-degree child abuse. The possible motive is the 38-year-old scumbag father was trying to avoid years of paying child support.
