Pennsylvania Toddler Allegedly Killed by Dad's Girlfriend who Fed her Acetone, Batteries, and Screw

A shocking incident has unfolded in Pennsylvania, where a 20-year-old woman stands accused of poisoning her boyfriend's 18-month-old daughter. Aleisia Owens allegedly fed the toddler batteries, screws, and nail polish remover, causing her tragic death. Disturbingly, it was revealed that Owens had researched the harmful effects of these items on children before committing the heinous act. The autopsy confirmed that the child died due to fatal levels of acetone in her blood.

The child's father, Bailey Jacoby, had left Owens alone with his daughter temporarily when he received a distressing call from her. He rushed back home to find his daughter unresponsive and immediately called emergency services. Despite being airlifted to a hospital, the little girl succumbed to organ failure four days later.

The investigation uncovered damning evidence against Owens, including internet searches related to household products that could harm children. Police also found information on poisonous beauty products and medications causing accidental poisoning deaths in children on her phone.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Michelle Henry described the details of the case as heartbreaking. It is unfathomable that someone would intentionally harm a defenseless child and attempt to obfuscate the truth. Owens now faces homicide charges, along with attempted homicide, aggravated assault of a child, endangering the welfare of a child, and other related offenses.

While the child's father, Jacoby, has not been implicated in the crime, the investigation is ongoing. The family of the toddler is devastated by the loss and hailed Owens' arrest as the first step towards justice.

The court proceedings in this harrowing case are expected to be lengthy, as the family seeks closure in the wake of such a horrific tragedy.
