Just a little over a year ago, little Summer Chambers from Johnstown, Pennsylvania, would have experienced her very first Christmas. Tragically, the five-month-old didn't survive long enough to see it.
On December 22, 2016, a friend of Summer's parents, 19-year-old Chelsea Cardaro and 27-year-old Jason Chambers, visited their home to check on them after the couple didn't show up for a planned holiday get together. What they saw was horrifying. Police were called to the scene soon after.
Summer was found dead inside a bassinet. An autopsy revealed she died of dehydration and starvation two days earlier.
Cardero and Chambers were also found dead in a nearby bathroom. Pathologists estimated that they'd died a week earlier of what had initially been determined as a heroin overdose, but later changed to a fentanyl overdose. Their baby had been stuck for days in the bassinet before she passed away.
