 Baby Drowns After Mom Left Him in Bathtub For Some “Me Time”

NY Post

An 11-month old baby died after his mother left him in the bathtub unsupervised so she could have some “me time.”

According to Knox County Sheriff’s Office, Lindsee Leonardo, 32, was charged with first-degree murder. The arrest took place Friday for the death of her 11-month-old son, Aiden Xavier.

Leonardo admitted to authorities that she put Aiden and his 23-month-old sibling in the tub Wednesday so that she could have some “me time.” She then left them alone for 10 minutes so that she could smoke a cigarette and listen to two songs on her phone.

When she returned, the mom found 11-month old Aiden unresponsive and floating on his back. She called 911 and he was transported to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.

The hospital spokeswoman, Erica Estep spoke out Friday morning and stated that the baby’s sibling was not injured in the tub incident.

Leonardo was initially charged with aggravated child abuse but now authorities have stated that she is also facing a count for murder.
