Eleana M. Carbajal, a 31-year-old resident of Olivehurst, was arrested Wednesday at her home in the 1500 block of 6th Ave. following a four month long investigation into the death of her one-year-old child in late 2018.
On December 24th 2018, the child was brought to Rideout Hospital and was unresponsive.
Carbajal claimed the toddler had drowned in the bathtub earlier that morning and that she had attempted CPR for several hours prior to bringing the boy to the hospital.
Authorities stated the inconsistencies in Carbajal’s statements.
Medical professionals noted that the one year old child had multiple injuries and had appeared malnourished.
An autopsy and toxicology reported preformed on the child states that the child’s cause of death was hypoxia due to aspiration pneumonia along with methamphetamine exposure and malnutrition.
The one year old boy would have turned two in February.
Carbajal’s bail is set at $1 million.
