NASHVILLE (MNPD) – A three-month investigation led by Youth Services detectives into a 23-month old’s fentanyl-related fatal overdose led to criminal homicide and aggravated child neglect warrants being issued today against the boy’s father, Kelvin Blaylock Jr., 22. Blaylock is already jailed on unrelated failure to appear charges.
Officers responded to an Ireland Street residence on October 3rd after Blaylock called 911 to report that he had woken up and found his son, Kashton Blaylock, unresponsive. The child’s mother had dropped him off to be in Blaylock’s care while she went to work. The child was transported to Centennial Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased. An autopsy determined that the cause of death was due to toxic effects of fentanyl and metonitazene.
During an interview Wednesday, Blaylock admitted to using heroin two hours before finding his son unresponsive.
