The mother of a 3-year-old girl who drowned in a neighbor’s pool in Strongsville was denied temporary custody, visitation or phone contact with her other two children. Baksi is also not permitted to contact her children by phone.
Jessica Baksi said she left her children aged, 3, 11 and 1 at home while she ran to McDonald’s on Aug. 1. Her daughter, 3-year-old Aria Kalinich, slipped out of the house and ran around the neighborhood while witnesses tried to catch her, police said.
Officers searched for about 30 minutes before finding the toddler in a pool on Cook Road, just a few doors down from her house.
Aria was taken to Southwest General Health Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Baski said Aria had autism and a history of getting out of the house.
The girl climbed fences and neighbors said they had seen her wandering the neighborhood alone.
