    Snip:

    Authorities are still trying to find the mother of a 4-year-old girl who died of "extreme alcohol poisoning" in an Alpharetta apartment, police said Monday.

    and

    "Authorities say they are examining the Haitian culture to see if there is any kind of ritual that would call for any kind of alcohol being around a child,"

    Snip:

    "... the prosecution of her father and aunt continued, with court documents accusing the girl's father, Wilguens Decelien, and his sister, Mara Decelien of "feeding" alcohol to her hours before she died, according to a report by wsbtv.com. They were both charged with felony cruelty to children and felony murder.

    Shakira had a blood alcohol level of .272, more than three times the legal limit for an adult driver, wsbtv.com reported, adding that she may have consumed rum."

    So very sad.

    Jane is covering this right now. She said that the girls blood alcohol content was the same as a 170 pound person drinking 12 shots of liquor.

    Poor Shakira. Fly with the Angels lil girl.
