Lana Cristina, 28, of Kenner, Louisiana, called 911 on June 10 at approximately 3:40 am after she discovered her son was not breathing, according to a Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office press release.

The baby was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased later that morning, authorities said.

An autopsy and toxicology report found that the cause of the child’s death was acute fentanyl toxicity, according to the sheriff’s office.
