Just because the parents are in jail on drug charges. DOES NOT mean the child was abused or neglected.
My sister lost a child to SIDS, and SIDS often leave medical examiners puzzled.

I don't know but I think 2 years old is pretty old for SIDS isn't it? As far as neglecting the kids goes if you have 3 little kids I would sure like to know where you get money to buy drugs??? If I remember right (and its been awhile) with 2 little kids it was pretty hard to find enough extra money to go to a movie! I sort of tend to believe the kids might have been going without one or two things they needed .... like medical care and fruits and vegetables???

SIDS is only diagnosed before the age of one.

Was the child malnourished? If not then I would assume he was getting his "fruits and vegetables". Did he have any signs of disease that he was not receiving treatment for? If that were the case I would also assume the medical examiner could have found that. As for the other children did they show any signs of neglect or abuse? Would this story have even been reported if not for the fact that both parents are in jail?

I think it pretty much goes without saying parents who are arrested on drug charges with 3 small children in the home probably are not the most fit parents on the block. I don't need a medical examination of the kids to determine that. If you are under the influence of illegal drugs you are not being a responsible parent and your child is not getting adequate care and supervision.

My prayers go out to the parents of this child. I can honestly say that if I lost my child I don't know what kind of shape I would be in. The child was obviously in good health or the medical examiners office would have stated that the child was not. God bless this family in it's time of need.
