    Independent watchdog for state agencies set to release report on DCF's role in Bella

    from October 25, 2015

    Mossaides does expect to release her report on DCF's role in the Bella Bond case next week. And after that, a managerial review is set to come out.

    In reply to human:

    If there were drugs used on Bella and they were not used over a long enough time to appear in her hair, wouldn't they then appear in her organs, blood or tissue? How could drugs be used and not appear anywhere? Not in a hair follicle, urinalysis, blood test, liver, other organs, eye fluids, nails etc? Huh?

    I want to reply to this since I'm the one who brought up the theory (of my own) that heroin could have possibly been used.
    There is a TON of information on the web regarding forensic pathology and timing , storage, time in certain organs and such.
    If we compare the link below to AJ Hadsell's case and how long she was missing to when she was found I think it gives us a much bigger picture
    of how IF Baby Bella was subject to heroin it would be undetermined.
    I want to add, it was difficult to identify AJ's COD and from reading this article I can see why.

    Wow, great resource, albeit lengthy at 22 pgs. Could you give a synopsis how drugs could be administered or abused and then not be present at autopsy?

    I just dont think she was drugged. But, given the time span, the decomposition, the skin slippage, etc etc they are not going to see any needle marks or even any obvious bruising?? and heroin rapidly dissipates post mortem if i am correct.

    My guess is they are working on a bloated discolored mass of flesh (sorry to be so graphic) and when you compare even the artist sketch to how Bella really looked it is obvious to me that a lot of altering of the body after months in a refrigerator and a couple of days in the hot sun hampered the artists rendering as well as the original autopsy.JMO

    I have no idea if sweet Bella was given heroin, but it could be as simple as putting a wee bit in her bottle. One would not have to smoke it or inject it to achieve the affect, especially in a 2 year old.

    Hello all. I've been following Bella's story from the UK and I'm very glad I stumbled into this forum, so many interesting theories as to how, why and who about poor Bella's death. Anyway, back to the drug theory, I think it's a very likely scenario that she was either drugged to keep her quiet or she somehow accidentely swallowed methadone/heroin or something else. The only thing I don't understand is why RB would then lie about MM punching her in the stomach. Surely she could have just as easily said that it was MM who gave Bella the drug or left it hanging around, why do along with anything else? This is why I don't beleive Bella was drugged or drugs took her life in any way. As awful as it is, I really hoped it may have been because the thought of anyone punching or physically hurting that little girl makes my stomach churn.

    evie71 So glad you have decided to join the conversation. I tend to agree. I do not think heroin was a cause of death. I believe this baby was suffocated as member joypath described several threads back.


    Burking
    Also found in: Dictionary/thesaurus, Legal, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.
    Homicidal suffocation, accomplished by sitting on the victim’s’ chest with a hand placed over the mouth and nose

    http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Burking

    With Bella being so young and small, burking could easily have been accomplished with a forearm across her little chest while using the other hand to hold over her little mouth and nose.

    This would also go along with the account RB allegedly gave that she came in to find MM leaning/standing over Bella from a greater height with his hand near her abdomen. She also gave accounts to others that he had beaten her to death. I am theorizing that she saw him as he had just completed suffocating the child and was in the act of returning to a standing position, pulling his arm and weight from her chest and abdomen area and his other from near her head/face. That is my working theory right now. Of course subject to change should other info or evidence cause me to rethink it.

    Keep sharing your thoughts with us.

    Report on Bella Bond's death to be released Wednesday

    http://www.whdh.com/story/30370943/r...ML82Dg.twitter

    This appears to be the DCF report. Title is misleading.

    It's baffling isn't it!? Considering the original autopsy report showed Bella to have been in good health, well cared for, no bruises or lacerations, a good weight for her age, drugs do seem to be the likely explanation but both RB and MM statements don't tally with that. I tend to believe that RB's version is nearer the truth but then why cover for him?? I like many others have seen the fb pics of Bella, watched the birthday video and my conclusion is that although Bella's life was probably erratic and there were times mum was not being as good as mum as she should have been, I do believe that ultimately she loved that little girl and was desperate to keep her. So why the cover-up?? Nothing adds up in this case, almost all the actions of everyone involved in Bella's short life are questionable. Just hoping for justice.

    I have thought that perhaps MM was the one asleep when Bella started crying and Rachelle not wanting MM to awaken and begin screaming at Bella for the neighbors to hear (as no one was supposed to be living there with her and Bella) that Rachelle went in to quiet Bella. I believe she was smothered or murdered by burking. I don't think Rachelle wanted MM to become so bothered by Bella that he would leave as I believe he was supplying the heroine for both of them. Of course, then there is the witness that saw both Rachelle and MM punish Bella, so who really knows how it went down except RB and MM and neither is willing to admit the truth.

    MM's odd behavior could have triggered the neighbors/landlord to EVENTUALLY question why he was at the apartment so much and was in violation of the housing authority qualifications and rules. However, even I know that none of the neighbors reported Bella missing, so I do question would the neighbors even complain about MM? Apparently everybody just minds their business in this neighborhood.
