Baby girl fighting for life after ‘heroin injected in her head’ as mum, 21, arrested

by San Eli News

A two-month-old baby girl is fighting for her life after she had heroin injected in her head.

The tot, who has not been named, is on life support at Cook Children’s in Fort Worth, Texas, while her mum has been held by police.

Officers say the infant was found unconscious with injection marks at an address in San Angelo on Sunday and she was rushed to Shannon Medical Center.

Medics made the sickening discovery of injection sites all over her tiny body including her head and her urine tested positive for heroin.

Authorities told news channel Local 12 that it is a shocking case.

Due to the infant’s condition she was transferred to Cook Children’s Hospital where she continued to fight for her life on Wednesday morning.

Detectives said during their investigation, they learned that in August, 21-year-old Destiny Harbour gave birth to the girl at the residence, said Local 12.

They said authorities also discovered the infant had not received any formal medical care since birth.

Investigators said Harbour’s mum 37-year-old Christin Bradley, and Bradley’s boyfriend, 34-year-old Dustin Smock, had help to take care of the baby inside the home.

But it was while officials were executing a search warrant inside the house, that they found drug paraphernalia as well as a small quantity of suspected heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana and pills.

That was serious enough, but none of the officers attending the scene could understand how a child of just two months showed signs of repeated intravenous heroin use.

San Angelo police told the channel that Harbour, Bradley, and Smock all face a charge of serious bodily injury to a child, which is a first-degree felony and could spend many years in jail.

However, authorities also said it’s an ongoing investigation and the three suspects may face additional charges in the future.
