PORTLAND, TN – According to newly-released autopsy reports, an infant who was discovered in a Portland, Tennessee home dead while still strapped into his car seat, had actually starved to death after his mother had died of a drug overdose; her 3 year-old daughter was still alive, and it was discovered that she had been attempting in vain to feed her baby brother, but was unable to keep him alive.

The infant, 15 month-old Nicholas Crowder, and his mother, 32 year-old Tiffany Spears, were both found dead in their home on February 9; the boy had been found on the floor, strapped into a car seat.

The two were discovered by Spears’ probation officer, who had visited the home and who then alerted the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office when they, after no one answered the door, looked inside the window and saw the 3 year-old running around and the bodies of Spears and the infant.

According to autopsy results released on Monday, Spears had been dead for several days after overdosing on a combination of methamphetamine and fentanyl; Nicholas eventually passed away from starvation and dehydration. Officials say that both deaths have been ruled to be accidental.

The 3 year-old daughter was taken for treatment at a local area hospital as a “precautionary measure” and is expected to recover. The autopsy report noted that food was found in and around the car seat, indicating that the girl had attempted to take care of her brother despite the horror she was forced to endure.

“It appeared the decedent’s sister tried to take care of the decedent for several days,” the report said.
