How often do parent's say that the baby died from natural causes or accidents? How many have been proven to be true? None, that I remember.CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, SC (FOX 46 WJZY) - The mother of an infant who was found dead inside a plastic container Tuesday could possibly undergo a psych evaluation while in custody, according to Chesterfield County Sheriff Jay L. Brooks.
The mother, Breanna Lewis, 19, has been charged with giving false information to law enforcement, desecration or removal of human remains, and destroying, altering, concealing or tampering with physical evidence following her false kidnapping report.
The Sheriff's Office said an autopsy of the 11-month-old girl, Harlee Lane Lewis, has been completed, but the official results of that autopsy are unavailable at this time. The results have been turned over to the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED).
According to Sheriff Brooks, there were no visible marks on the baby's body or any evidence that could be seen with the naked eye that showed Harlee Lewis had been murdered. Her remains were found hidden inside a plastic bag in a plastic container about 1,000 yards from the home.
"The two officers that found this child are going to have to have counseling," Sheriff Brooks said.
Brooks said it's possible the infant died from natural causes.
most of the time there's no news stories about a childs death unless something hinky, negligent, or tragic is involved, sadly it happens more then people think. but I agree, if it hits the news there's almost always because someone caused it or didn't stop it from happening.How often do parent's say that the baby died from natural causes or accidents?

Deputies arrested Lewis last May and initially charged her with improper disposal of human remains and filing a false police report after her daughter, Harlee Lewis, was found dead in a diaper box on Daisy Lewis Lane off Jackson Road East in the Chesterfield community of Chesterfield County.
The arrest warrant for the homicide by child abuse charge reads:
