On December 3rd, 2018, Harrison County deputies received a call about a child who was unresponsive from the couple’s home. The little boy was found behind a sofa in the couple’s home and immediately taken to a Biloxi hospital, where he was pronounced dead. During the investigation, authorities discovered the infant was left unsupervised for an extensive amount of time.

The sheriff’s deputies found the infant, as well as a two-year-old and three-year-old living in “deplorable conditions,” and said the toddlers both showed signs of abuse and neglect. Sheriff deputies immediately called the Department of Human Services, who took both of the other children into custody. The two-year-old and the deceased one-year-old both belonged to Canette, where the three-year-old little girl belonged to Lopresto.
