In November of 2023, the Tucson police department responded to a home on East Limberlost Drive where they found an 11 year old boy who an autopsy would later reveal had died from sepsis.

Investigators would learn that the 11 year old, who suffered from multiple medical conditions, was completely dependent on his caregivers; his mother, 33 year old Ariel Lee Horn and her boyfriend, 29 year old Charles Jackson McClellan Jr. According to the autopsy report, the child was found with extensive lesions throughout his lower body which were attributed to not receiving proper medical attention due to neglect from his mother and her boyfriend.
