Ocala, Florida — In October 2023, detectives responded to Advent Health in regards to an unresponsive 9-month-old child. The child later died.
At that time, the cause of the baby’s death was not known.
During the investigation, detectives learned that the mother, Kacy Kincaid, 33, was in possession of Fentanyl. A detective attempted to interview Kincaid, however, she was under the influence of either drugs or alcohol and could not hold a conversation.
A search warrant was then obtained for a sample of Kincaid’s blood.
While waiting for the test to come back, Kincaid was transported to jail and charged with drug trafficking for being in possession of 5 grams of Fentanyl.
Her blood test eventually came back positive for Fentanyl.
Later in the investigation, detectives also learned that the baby’s death was caused from Fentanyl, methamphetamine, and xylazine toxicity
On January 24, 2024, Kincaid was arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter.
