Despite dying back in October, the cause of death for a 9-month-old baby boy in Ocala, Florida, has just recently been released. In a statement posted to social media on January 30th, the Ocala Police Department announced the boy’s mother had been arrested. Now, 33-year-old Kacy Kincaid has been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child.

The investigation kicked off on October 12th when Advent Heath was treating the child and called to report the child was seemingly suffering from an overdose. While the doctors were unable to save the child, officers attempted to speak with Kincaid. The officers were unable to talk about the unresponsive child due to Kincaide being intoxicated. As such, they obtained a warrant for her blood after discovering she was carrying five grams of Fentanyl. With a positive test for Fentanyl and other substances, she was arrested for felonious drug trafficking.

On Facebook, the department wrote, “Police later received a report from the Medical Examiner’s Office indicating that the child’s death was caused by Fentanyl, methamphetamine, and xylazine toxicity. Ms. Kincaid’s blood sample also contained Fentanyl, along with other substances. The 5 grams of Fentanyl found in Ms. Kincaid’s possession was tested and showed the presence of the same Xylazine compound that was found in the child’s blood during the autopsy.”

This woman serves as another shining example of the dangers of Fentanyl to the American public. With liberals continuously pushing for open borders and ever-expanding drug reform, it is far beyond time for the American people to demand better. If we can stem the tide of drugs flooding this country, we can save lives. It truly is that simple.
