Witnesses said the baby had been sick for about 3 days before his death and he previously suffered from seizures.
A resident in the area claims that the baby’s mother Andy Jn Baptiste would leave her son in the care of her young children.
Members of the community believe that Ms. JnBaptiste should be reprimanded
Witnesses say on the night Renee passed Ms. JnBaptiste was at a bar drinking. When contacted, the baby’s mother declined to comment on the situation
