Family friend discovers baby dead hours after fatal fentanyl overdose next to impaired parents

The Florida parents of a deceased infant were allegedly high on drugs as she layed dead next to them for hours, authorities said.

A family friend made the horrific discovery of the “ice cold” baby when he visited Nicholas and Carisaa Alexander’s home at around 5 p.m. on May 31.

The infant’s father gave her Narcan on the way to the hospital telling the friend that she might have gotten into his “stash.”

Once at the hospital, a nurse noticed that the 8-month-old girl was “gone for a while.”

“In my 17 years of experience, I’ve never seen anything like that,” the nurse told detectives. “I have seen many deceased babies but that’s the worse I’ve seen.”

During questioning, the visibly impaired Alexanders said that they last saw their daughter alive at around 7 a.m. in her playpen. They woke up at 10 a.m., to find her in a “prone position” on a couch and they couldn’t remember who put her there.

Nicholas Alexander admitted to using cocaine and crack in the hours preceding his child’s death. Clarissa also “took a hit” of the crack, according to him.

Autopsy results showed that the baby had deadly levels of fentanyl and benzoylecgonine in her system. The Alexanders were subsequently charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child.
