SAN ANGELO, TX — Brixlee Marie Lee, the two-month-old infant who was recently placed on life support after being found unconscious and testing positive for heroin has succumbed to her injuries, police said this afternoon.
Lee was rushed to Shannon Medical Center in the early morning hours on Nov. 7 after police located her unconscious at a residence located in the 2200 block of Webster Avenue.
Due to Lee’s declining state and the time for even the fastest ambulance service to arrive, officers decided to transport Lee via patrol vehicle while another officer administered CPR to her. The attending physician later advised that Lee was in cardio-respiratory failure and that, had the medical intervention not occurred when it did, Lee would have died much sooner. Staff also advised the officers that Lee had injection sites on her extremities and head and that she had tested positive for heroin.
Lee was transported later that day to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, where she remained on life-support until physicians pronounced her dead on Tuesday, November 10.
Lee’s mother, 21-year-old Destiny Harbour, Lee’s maternal grandmother, 37-year-old Christin Chanelle Bradley, and Bradley's boyfriend, 34-year-old Dustin Wayne Smock, have been charged with First Degree Felony Injury to Child – Serious Bodily Injury.
The charges could be enhanced to murder now that the infant has died.
Harbour is being held on $100,000.00 bond. Smock is being held on $50,000.00 bond. Bradley was released on November 8, 2020, after posting bond.
Lee’s body was sent for autopsy. The results are pending.
