A Memphis woman is charged with murdering her baby - after having a dispute with the child's father. Police believe that the mother, 22 year old Jamyl Price also tried to commit suicide after allegedly killing her child.
On Sunday, officers received a 911 call from a woman saying there was a dead individual in her apartment in the 6900 block of Red Oaks Circle, and there would be another dead person at the location by the time they arrived.
Police were tipped off by Jamyl's babys father - who suspected something was wrong and called police. When they arrived at her home, officers found a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying unresponsive on the bathroom floor. They then saw Jamyl in the bathtub unconscious.
Eventually she regained consciousness. Jamyl then told investigators she took her daughter to the apartment pool and stuck her under water for "2-3 seconds" and noticed she was struggling to breathe. She went back to the apartment to perform CPR, but eventually realized her daughter was dead.
The affidavit states Price spent the rest of the day inside the apartment trying to find ways to kill herself.
While being transported to the hospital, she told paramedics she "thought her baby could breathe underwater," according to the affidavit.
According to local reports, "Police also learned Price had threatened to commit suicide the day before. Her child's father contacted one of her parents about the threats, but he was told she was alright and was "just depressed," according to police documents."
Rest in peace to the little angle that passed.
