BIRTH: November 24, 2005 

DEATH: February 6, 2008

Sheldon Bartley, Jr ~ Age 2

Sheldon, 2, died as a result of his mother falling on top of him and suffocating him. His mother passed out after drinking alcohol for 12 hours. She had apparently gone on a drinking binge the day before she was to enter court-ordered treatment.

Sheldon had a 6 year old sister and both had been removed from the custody of their mother and were cared for by their grandparents. It’s unclear of he was caring for the children and she was on probation for her drinking at the time of Sheldon’s death.
