Pennsylvania Infant Starves To Death After Parents Overdose On Heroin: So Sad [VIDEO]

A five-month-old infant girl in Pennsylvania died of starvation days after her parents died from heroin overdoses. Jason Chambers, 27, his 19-year-old girlfriend Chelsea Cardaro, and their five-month-old baby Summer were all found dead in their Kernville, Pennsylvania home on Thursday.

Coroner Jeffrey Lees revealed the parents had been dead for about a week when their bodies were discovered onThursday. The autopsies completed on Friday confirmed that their baby daughter died several days later from dehydration and starvation.

Chambers was found in a living room on the first floor of the residence, while Cardaro was in a second-floor bathroom. The baby was found in a bassinet in a second-floor bedroom, according to officials.

The couple reportedly were unable to seek help because they died within minutes of one another. Toxicology tests are pending for the parents, which will take around six to eight weeks to complete.

Police revealed that although the overdoses cannot officially be confirmed, they did find evidence of drugs at the scene. 

Neighbors of the couple had not seen either Jason or Chelsea since December 11. They believed the couple were out of town for the holidays.

Cardaro posted a photo of herself with Chambers to Facebook on December 14, with the caption ''The one and only my love of my life."

District Attorney Kelly Callihan revealed during a press conference on Friday that there was a prior history of drug abuse at the home. Police said emergency responders were called to the home last month to treat Chambers after another overdose, where he was revived with Narcan. The family was reported to social services following the overdose.

Callihan stated, "They did meet with the mother and the father with the child present at the residence. They checked out the house, and it was appropriate to a child living there. There was plenty of food and the child seemed well taken care of."
