Baby girl on life support ‘after heroin injected in her head,’ mom and grandma arrested

The 2-month-old infant, who has not been named, is on life support at Cook Children's in Fort Worth, Texas, while her 21-year-old mom has been arrested by San Angelo police.

The baby was recently rushed to the hospital and presented with needle injection marks on her head, arm and hand after she was apparently shot full of heroin by one or more of her nefarious caretakers.

The baby's mum Destiny Harbour has been arrested.

A trio of alleged child abusers has been charged in connection with the injection of heroin that the baby apparently received to the head.

The tot, who has not been named, is on life support at Cook Children's in Fort Worth, Texas, while her mom has been held by police.

Officers say the infant was found unconscious with injection marks at an address in San Angelo on Sunday and she was rushed to Shannon Medical Center.

Medics made the sickening discovery of injection sites all over her tiny body including her head and her urine tested positive for heroin.

Authorities told news channel Local 12 that it is a shocking case.

The infant's grandma 37-year-old Christin Bradley.

Due to the infant's condition, she was transferred to Cook Children’s Hospital where she continued to fight for her life on Wednesday morning.

Detectives said during their investigation, they learned that in August, 21-year-old Destiny Harbour gave birth to the girl at the residence, said Local 12.

They said authorities also discovered the infant had not received any formal medical care since birth.

Investigators said Harbour's mum 37-year-old Christin Bradley, and Bradley’s boyfriend, 34-year-old Dustin Smock, had helped to take care of the baby inside the home.

Dustin Smock is Bradley's boyfriend.

But it was while officials were executing a search warrant inside the house, that they found drug paraphernalia as well as a small quantity of suspected heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, and pills.

That was serious enough, but none of the officers attending the scene could understand how a child of just two months showed signs of repeated intravenous heroin use.

San Angelo police told the channel that Harbour, Bradley, and Smock all face a charge of serious bodily injury to a child, which is a first-degree felony and could spend many years in jail.

However, authorities also said it's an ongoing investigation and the three suspects may face additional charges in the future.
