Links sought between pair of Ohio baby deaths


LEXINGTON -- Authorities are looking at a playpen among other possible links between two babies who died a month apart at the same baby sitter's home in Lexington.In a search warrant obtained by CentralOhio.com on Friday, Lexington police told Mansfield Municipal Judge Frank Ardis they were seeking evidence of possible child endangerment at a home on Wellsley Drive.Four-month-old Brody Thrush was pronounced dead early Thursday afternoon at MedCentral/Mansfield Hospital. The boy's body was sent to Summit County for autopsy, Richland County coroner's investigator Bob Ball said.The infant's death comes after 10-month-old Carson Mitchell Campbell was found dead at the same home Aug. 10.In a news release Friday, Lexington police Chief Brett Pauley said preliminary results from the medical examiner revealed no trauma in the Campbell case. Final autopsy results from the Summit County Coroner's Office are pending.The search warrant signed Thursday for the Wellsley Drive home listed numerous items for seizure and analysis, including the playpen, milk, a blanket, car seat and tote bag -- all of which were taken from various rooms in the house and garage.Pauley said police responded to both 911 calls -- the one made Aug. 10 and Thursday's call -- made by a woman living at the home after she found the babies not breathing.The woman was performing CPR when rescue personnel arrived at 1:20 p.m. Thursday, authorities said.In the warrant, Lexington police Officer Michael J. Davis stated Thursday's incident appeared to be "very similar" to the circumstances surrounding the Aug. 10 death."In both cases the child was left unattended in an upstairs bedroom," the warrant said. "The incident in question (Thursday), there was a two-hour time span when the child was not checked on."The woman has not been charged with any crime. Her attorney declined comment Friday.Ball said it appears each infant was found dead in the same playpen. Authorities were unable to provide a model number for the playpen in question.In the first child's death, the police report stated the baby was found lying in a collapsible Fold-N-Go playpen made by Century.The woman told authorities when she went to get the child up from a nap, she found him unresponsive among blankets in the crib. She called 911, removed the blankets and laid him on his back.Brett Neuenschwander, the Lexington officer who filed the August report, said he removed Carson from the crib and placed him on a bed."My observations of Carson were that the area around his eyes were blue and his skin seemed cool to the touch. Carson did not appear to be breathing and I did not find a pulse," he stated.The baby sitter told police Carson recently had been hospitalized for croup and still had a bit of a cough, the report said.According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, manufacturers of Century's Fold-N-Go recalled 50,000 of the playpens for repair. The bassinet was found to be potentially dangerous, as loose fabric could form near the floorboard, creating a pocket in which an infant could become trapped and suffocate.In 2007, according to published reports, a collapsed Century playpen killed an 11-month-old child in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.

Parents Of 2 Infants Who Died At Day Care Now Suing For Answers

Monday October 8, 2012 5:28 PM
UPDATED: Monday October 8, 2012 5:30 PM

LEXINGTON, Ohio - A mother thought that her 10-month-old son Carson would be safe when she dropped him off at the home of his day care provider.

Allison Campbell said that she never expected that would be the last time she would see her son alive.

"He seemed to be happy. When he left, he wasn't a fussy baby at all," Campbell said.

Campbell said that she got a phone call one day in August 2010 that her son stopped breathing.

"I got a phone call as I was leaving work that my son was on his way to the hospital," Campbell said. "I was hoping it wasn't serious."

Carson Campbell never woke up.

Her first thought was that her son had a medical condition that she missed.

"But the coroner's report showed that there was no medical evidence that would lead to explain his death," Campbell said.

Campbell said that the only conclusion she and her husband could come to was that the person in charge of her son's well being had a hand in his death.

She and her husband had been recommended to use the day care provider and interviewed her before sending their son there.

Almost a month after Carson died, 4-month-old Brody Thrush, was found unresponsive in his crib at the same day care provider.

Now, both sets of parents are suing in hopes of finding out more.

"The lawsuit is the only tool that we have to get answers from her," Campbell said.

10TV News attempted to reach the caregiver, who was not identified because she has not been criminally charged, but no one answered at her home.

According to the lawsuit, the day care provider was running an unlicensed facility.

John Rinehard represents both sets of parents of the deceased children.

"She had Carson in a bedroom upstairs, and based on what she told police, she had not checked on him for 3 hours," Rinehard said.

Campbell said that the pain of not knowing what happened to her son has never left her.

"We just want to know what happened that day," Campbell said.
