Toddler found with Drugs with Living Insects and Bugs all Over the Body at Abandoned Building in Kentucky; Parents Arrested and Slapped with Several Charges

A Kentucky couple was apprehended after being discovered walking with a baby in a stroller that was infested with maggots and also contained illegal substances.

Tiffany McCord, 34, and Thomas Parker, 30, were reportedly seen walking with a child towards an abandoned building in Madisonville on May 24. According to WFIE, they appeared to be intoxicated, as stated in a police report.

Parker, the father of the child, entered the deserted building but quickly left when approached by law enforcement, according to the police.

During a routine stop, law enforcement officers discovered drugs, drug paraphernalia, and prescribed medications for the baby in McCord’s possession, according to WFIE.

An ambulance was called due to the child’s undisclosed condition. Upon picking up the baby, medics discovered that it had been sitting on a pile of live maggots in the stroller, according to the police report.

According to the report, McCord stated that she only claimed ownership of the baby’s diaper bag, which contained an ashtray, a lighter, and a small plastic bag.

Parker was taken into custody the next day.

He acknowledged his paternity and shared responsibility for the baby with McCord.

It was unclear at the time whether or not she was the mother. Parker mentioned that he was requested to clean the stroller, but only managed to wipe down a portion of it.

He strongly refuted any ownership of the drugs discovered in the stroller.

Parker has been booked into Hopkins County Jail on a charge of wanton endangerment, according to online records.

McCord is facing a range of charges, such as drug trafficking, wanton endangerment, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
