NC - Phillip Lee, 5, dies of methadone OD, Rockwell, 1 Sept 2008
This story is so sad, and has me intrigued. Little boy is dead, mom is critically ill, older brother is having trouble breathing and calls 911. I thought there would be a quick answer, but nothing yet. I hope it's not a case of mom poisoning herself and her kids.
Cause of child's death unclear
Authorities say carbon monoxide ‘pretty much' ruled out; mother is in serious condition.
Carbon monoxide has “pretty much been ruled out” as the reason a 5-year-old Cabarrus County boy died Monday afternoon near his mother, authorities said Wednesday.
But investigators with the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office still do not know how Phillip Alexander Lee died, Chief Deputy Paul Hunt said.
Phillip's mother, Robin Lee, 45, is in serious condition at Carolinas Medical Center – NorthEast in Concord. Authorities don't know how she was hurt, Hunt said, or what killed her son.

Oh how tragic. That is so sad.
I wonder if this is Robin Lee? This is an older Myspace, but her updated one is similar, but not with as much information. Beautiful, beautiful kids.

The release of the 911 call at this link saying the older boy told 911 he had just woken up. That was at after or around 2:00PM. I know teens sleep late, but this is when he found his mother "making weird noises, and :his little brother dead". I mean this poor kid. He also said he was sick and had been sick recently.
So, it wasn't just overnight if this older boy had been sick recently? Also, there is no mention of a dad. However, the older Myspace of Robin's mentions a husband and father. She kind of seemed lonely to me. Her newer Myspace only had very few people on it. Then again Myspace isn't a big deal with adults. Just considering her friends were scattered around the country that could be a good venue to communicate.
So, so sad for this family. Link about the 911 call.
O.K. not to throw more into this, but I was just looking at the Myspace for Robin. The updated one and it says she is single. So, possibly she isn't with the father of her children. She only has four "friends" on this space, and one is a guy from Ohio who is single as well. It could be a total stranger or old friend, but curiously I didn't see him on her old Myspace although the guy has not logged on since 2007. That's a little wierd. Again, prayers and sympathy for this family.

a guy I know died in his sleep recently from flu-like symptoms. I had an awful 24-bug two weeks ago. I wonder if they got bitten by a bug, poisoned intentionally or unintentionally, like food poison, or what.
Very sad and weird too!
Prayers for the family.

According to the search warrant, deputies found 106 assorted medication containers inside the home.
"Some prescriptions. Some over the counter, but certainly everything appears to be legitimate," Riley said.
Deputies say they have not gotten the autopsy or toxicology reports back from the victims. Investigators are not jumping to conclusions based on what they found in the house.
"I wouldn’t say at this point that it would say anything about things other than it's just standard operating procedure for us to gather something like that," Riley said.

I'm not sure this is applicable to this case, but my granddaughter had cold-like symptoms last week. I came down with it and wonder if I need to go to the hospital. My son had his lung collapse in this same time period. Something bad going around or coincidence?

This is so sad....the boys are precious!!!
Wasn't there another story just like this one about a year ago or so? I never heard what happened with that one but it seemed like almost the same thing. Anyone remember that?
Prayers for this family...bless their hearts!!
WHERE IS CAYLEE???

Wow; sounds like an awful lot of drugs in the house! I can't imagine where I would even keep that many different containers of drugs.

It could be the drugs. But isn't there another airborne poison that they have a detector for? There was a lot of talk about it for a while, then I quit hearing it mentioned. It is something that occurs in the soil, and somehow gets into the home.
ETA: It is Radon Gas. But it looks like that isn't the answer as it doesn't have any observable symptoms, though it can cause lung cancer.

I'm glad to see that the mom, Robin is still hanging in there.
Hopefully, LE will have answers soon.

A mother whose 13-year-old son called 911 to report his brother's death is in good condition Thursday, hospital officials say.
An official with Rimer Fire Department said they were instructed not to discuss the matter since it is still under investigation
