BREAKING: 1 dead, 3 seriously injured in crash near Covington after police chase

2-year-old Spanaway boy died from meth, medical examiner says

meth1TACOMA — The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office said a 2-year-old Spanaway boy who died Dec. 6 had fatal amounts of methamphetamine in his system, it was reported Tuesday.

The toddler, Nathan Iverson, died of acute methamphetamine toxicity, the office said, according to the News Tribune of Tacoma.

Emergency crews were called by the child’s parents at  about 2:30 a.m. to a Spanaway house on Dec. 6, where the boy was found unconscious. He was taken to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, where he died later that day, Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said.

“The bottom line is, one way or another, this kid ingested enough meth to kill him,” Troyer told the News Tribune.

No one has been arrested, but an investigation is ongoing.

    How can somebody NOT be arrested for the death of this little boy????? This is terribly sad & just turns my stomach that because of some IDIOT That is responsible for MURDERING this baby is still snorting or shooting up their precious meth and not rotting in jail. I HATE DRUGS!

      I actually know the mother, and have been to that house several times. It is ridiculous, we are all surviving, but anyone should know that is no place for a child. Unfortunately in the world we live in we cannot always choose where to live. She never mistreated the child in front of me, though obviously poverty stricken. I know it was an accident but that is no excuse. A dark day for every parent. She was just picked u by once and will be going away for some time now….

  • Selfish people

    ………ALL adults in that household are irresponsible……….. OBVIOUSLY!
    RULE: DON'T HAVE KIDS if you CANT KEEP THEM SAFE. If they gave a damn about their kids they or anybody WOULD control what their kids do, hear and see, or have access to such as "DRUGS" & includes people who enter YOUR home & so on…. SELFISH PEOPLE – a life time treasure lost to an addiction that has NO PURPOSE or good outcome!!!! EVER !

    BOTH parents are guilty! I knew the father (not on a personal level) and the mother (from school) they are both meth addicts! Troy is now in jail with 4 warrants and the mother is out roaming the streets still doing meth while her 4 year old daughter is sitting here in my apartment complex with my neighbor. CPS needs to take that poor baby girl away, I have seen that girl so many times in the same dirty clothes, or almost no clothes and have given her my daughters clothes so she’s warm! Because her dad thought meth was more important! This crap could have been prevented!

    Oh and how about I mention, the little boy was in the mothers hands while the little girl was here in my apartment complex, when this all happened! This shows you exactly who is more responsible, I am not standing up for Troy, but he made damn sure if he was going to smoke that his little girl WASN’T around! As for mommy dearest, we can’t say much… I only know this because Troy blabbed all this to his friend in our apartments who told my mom and myself.

    I am her Aunt and if you let me know where she is I will come and pick her up. I live in Seattle and I have a son of my own. Alyala has 2 uncles and 1 aunt that want to help her but her mother is too selfish and too strung out on drugs to let us. If you want to contact me I can give you my information. I am calling CPS right now!

    • concerned parent

      hey i was just curious if the other person that messeged you gave you the information on where the little girl is. I know the house that the little girl lives at. And have the number that aleya called me from a few days ago. Let me know if i can help in anyway. !!!!!!!!!

  • ggg

    All the adults in the house that night should be held responsible. you want to be a drug addict leave the innocent kids out of it. There is to much drugs out there and they need to get them off the streets.

  • Heather

    This mother should get. Death sentence so us tax payers don't have to pay for her to be in prison, this is just disgusting and she should not be allowed to breath

  • guest

    she'll think she's in hell once she's sitting in prison. prison women HATE BABY KILLERS. they'll want it to stop but it won't (DAILY)

    THE MOTHER IS NOT AT FAULT FOR THIS DEATH. I CAN TELL YOU PEOPLE GO IN AN OUT OF THE HOUSE ALL NIGHT IT COULD OF BEEN ANYONES DRUGS EVEN HER COUSIN BRANDON DONT HIM FOOL YOU HES MORE OF A DRUG ADDICT THAN HER. IVE TALKED TO NATHANS MOTHER PLENTY OF TIMES SHE DIDNT LIKE HER LIVING SITUATION BUT IT WAS WHAT SHE HAD.IT WASNT A SHED AND NATHAN WAS NOT FOUND IN A SHED AS THE UNINFORMED/WORD STREACHING NAZI NEWS TEAM SAYS.

  • ...Just sad

    It seems to me that you have all forgotten what is most important here… A beautiful little boy is gone and in stead of leaving loving comments about the boy, many of you are just taking it upon yourself to bash the parents and the way this child was raised… Justice will prevail, whoever is to blame will have to answer for what has happened… This little boy was taken from his life WAY too early. RIP little guy, I am sorry you endured what you did and I know that heaven has got to be a much safer and happier place for you. . . . Rest In Paradise Young Man.
