Investigators say their investigations shows that nasal spray was given to the baby inadvertently by the baby's grandmother. The bottle used contained some type of acid. It has since been submitted to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for testing.
Preliminary tests were positive for acid but results are still pending on the exact chemical in question.
Investigators also say that the storing of acid in nasal spray or eye dropper bottles is consistent with the activity of persons who manufacture methamphetamine. However, at this time the person who placed the acid in the bottle is undetermined.
The investigation did determined the grandmother who administered the spray did so without any intent to harm the child. After reviewing all the evidence gathered in the case and conferring with the State Attorney’s Office, there will not be any charges filed in the case at this time.
The Sheriff’s Office will continue to follow any available leads as they develop that may enhance the case.
