    I got on here to say the same thing Kelly below said. It's a little freaky how much they look alike.

    It does look like this woman hasn't slept in days but none of us know what really happened? If it was drugs, remember, drugs is nothing but a demon just waiting to destroy your life and it seems that in this situation, the demon has won. My heart goes out to all the family and friends of this mother and child.
