Police investigators interviewed the child’s father, who does not live with Martin; they believe he is not involved in any foul play.
It was discovered, however, that Martin and Omoyele had been involved in an auto accident earlier in the day, but investigators are not sure whether this had anything to do with the child’s death. According to police, the steering wheel on Martin’s vehicle began to shake, and she could not control it. The vehicle reportedly hit a curb, struck a hydrant, shot across a yard — hitting shrubs and rocks — then finally came to a stop at a parking lot. She was cited by police for operating a vehicle without reasonable control.
Relatives of the victims have set up a fund-raising page to cover the costs of both funerals.
