Tens of thousands of Americans die each year from fentanyl use, and this week, it was added to the list. a baby of just nine months.

Authorities in Nassau County, northeast of the state of Florida, reported that the minor died after his 17-year-old mother she put fentanyl in her milk bottle.

Sheriff Bill Leeper explained that the woman has already been arrested and accused of aggravated homicide and possession of a controlled substance.

In a press conference, the sheriff of that county, Bill Leeper, explained that forensics found 27 nanograms of the powerful opioid synthetic – 50 times more potent than heroin – in the baby's body systems.

He explained that the authorities responded to an emergency call last Monday, at a house in the Callahan area. The report indicated that a baby was not breathing. and he had no pulse, so the agents tried to revive him.

The boy was taken to a Jacksonville hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

“Originally, the mother said she didn't know what happened. She put the baby to sleep and I just couldn't wake him upLeeper said.

The police report indicates that the woman changed her version on more than one occasion. Finally, she confessed that she "was tired and wanted to take a nap", so she filled the baby's bottle and put a little bit of "whatever she thought would it was cocaine” in the bottle.

However, the analysis of the substance confirmed it was fentanyl.

“It is beyond my imagination why would a mother do this to her child. Most babies are born to loving parents who take care of their every need, but unfortunately some babies are born to people who don't have to be parents,” Leeper said.
