And yet the police tell us there is nothing suspicious about these deaths....Really? Oh sure, parents just seemingly drop dead and suffocate 3-year-old children all the time....
The deceased father is ALLEN MCNEIL JR. And notice that this a custody/vistation case. Are we suspicious yet?
This account leaves the situation rather vague, but earlier articles have suggested that Daddy had custody, and Mom in fact had visitation. Interesting....
Wonder who the judge was behind this, and whether Daddy had a track record of violent and/or erratic behavior that has been ignored up until now....

ENGLEWOOD – A three-year-old who was found dead with his father in a Lafayette Place apartment Monday appears to have died of suffocation, police said.
Allen McNeil Jr., 53, was found laying on top of his son, Allen McNeil III, around 8:30 a.m. after police broke through the door to conduct a wellness check. The child’s mother called police after the father did not show up for a scheduled visitation Sunday.
“It appears the child suffocated,” Deputy Police Chief Lawrence Suffern said. “As a result of the father laying on him, he couldn’t breath.”
The father’s cause of death is pending toxicology results.
A viewing will be held for the child from noon to 1 p.m. at Community Baptist Church on 1st Street today. The funeral will follow at 1 p.m.
