    Oh my how sad. Article states they don't know yet if baby got into them on accident or if they were given to her.

    So sad. Most likely it was accidentally ingested but this stuff needs to be kept out of the reach of children! You can't be too careful!

    That is tragic. We've had a number of sad cases like this in Oregon. My vet even shared that a number of dogs have died or had to have major life-saving attempts made due to painkiller ingestion. My first reaction is that it was most likely an accident as I have a hard time believing that a person in pain needing that medication or an addict would share one with a child. There are far more inexpensive ways to sedate an infant...horrible, illegal, and immoral but inexpensive.

    These meds really really need to be kept in a small lock box. It's required for any family doing foster or elder care for the state but is a great idea for anyone using these meds, IMO.

    Rest in peace little Analeisa. If the father allowed this to happen inadvertently, my heart goes out to him. Even if he proves to be an addict, that does not necessarily mean he intended to hurt his baby girl, IMO. We'll have to wait and see.

    Its sad, almost weekly around here... ( maybe more) we hear of pharmacies being robbed for this stuff. And many smaller pharmacies have stopped carrying them, and post signs saying so, just for the safety of their employees. The addiction is bad, and growing more each day. IF it is an addiction case, I feel so bad. For everyone. Addiction can make people careless.

    Well, even if just a tragic accident, it hurts my heart. :(

    I just pray it wasn't intentional..... Parents, PLEASE STOP HURTING YOUR CHILDREN!!!!!!

    This is local to me and they just announced yesterday what this baby died from on the news :(. I don't believe it was on purpose one of the neighbors interviewed stated that you could hear the father crying and screaming her name, and saying something to the fact of "what I have I done"....it is sad.
    There is also another baby who died right around the same time as this child but I haven't heard anything on that yet. It is odd really 2 babies in a couple of weeks, we just don't hear that kind of news here,,,,,

    I do wonder however if he was dealing the pills she got a hold of.....

    DA: Habitual criminal charges for father held in tot death


    A Clifton man jailed Wednesday in the Oxycodone overdose death of his infant daughter will be prosecuted as a habitual criminal, District Attorney Pete Hautzinger told a judge today.

    Manuel Angel Rivera, 30, 3233 White Ave., unit 4, is facing a potential third felony conviction if convicted on charges in the March 6 death of his daughter, Analeisa Rivera, 18 months. Manuel Rivera was convicted of attempted escape in 2000 and escape in 2002, both in Denver County, according to Hautzinger and Colorado Bureau of Investigation records

    Mommy, they do that here as well. They post signs saying they no longer carry oxycontin. Little Analeisa OD'd on oxycodone or so it's reported. Either way a child should have no access to any drug, but it's oxycontin that's a scourge.

    Addiction does lead to carelessness, but in the case of oxycontin the addict usually keeps that on their person. Tougher to get and way more expensive than oxycodone.

    Agreeing with Miss Izzy that an addict won't share their drugs let alone with a baby.

    Well, it appears Rivera has a long record. Poor little girl.


    RIP Analeisa/

    From Kat's link it states Rivera had two pills which were given to him from a friend. He noticed one on the floor in the very room his children were playing in and realized the other was missing so he proceeded to look for it.
