Warren PD reviews lab results on infants revived with opiate antidote

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

The Trumbull County Grand Jury is expected to review the latest evidence gathered by Warren Police as they try to find out why two unconscious infants had to be revived with the opiate antidote Nalaxone.

21 News has learned that toxicology reports are back from laboratories that tested blood samples taken from 9-month-old Cayden Perry and 21-month-old Danae Davis.

The children's mother, 18-year-old Carlisa Davis, brought the infants to Trumbull Memorial Hospital on Tuesday after finding both of them unconscious on the kitchen floor of the family's Randolph Street Northwest home.

Suspecting that the children ingested an opiate based narcotic, medical authorities at TMH administered Nalaxone, which counteracts the life-threatening effects of heroin and other opiates.

Investigators have not yet said if the toxicology indicates that the children were under the influence of opiates. That information is expected to be presented to the grand jury.

Police said earlier that they considered the mother the main suspect in their investigation.

The children, who were transported to Akron Children's Hospital, have since been released to the custody of foster care.
