Ohio parents smoke drugs in hotel with infant before mother dies, father fails to call police: report

A Cincinnati, Ohio, man who allegedly kept his 7-month-old girl in the same hotel room as her mother’s dead corpse, while failing to report the death, has been arrested, according to reports.

FOX 8 in Ohio reported that 32-year-old Troy Mahaffey of the College Hill neighborhood of Cincinnati faces charges of child endangerment and failing to report a death.

Police responded to the Days Inn & Suites on Lebanon Road in Sharonville on Aug. 2 to conduct a welfare check, and when they arrived, they found Mahaffey’s girlfriend, 34-year-old Geri Mays, unresponsive on a bed.

The scene was handed over to the heroin task force, and an investigator located white powder suspected to be heroin on the bathroom sink, the station reported. Investigators also located more drugs and paraphernalia, including a baggie of white powder suspected to be heroin, and Xanax pills.
