“Dad, who’s a very hard-working man, he’s employed nights, dad had gotten home from working the previous evening, visited sleep, and when he awakened he found that mom was on top of Denari,” Bacon said. “We believe it had been around 10 o’clock that morning, he had gone out and run some errands, came home and visited sleep.”
The Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s office will determine the reason for death for both Meadows and Denari, though police believe the child suffocated.
