The suspect in question is Asia Calabrese-Lewis. In Georgia, a mother has been charged with criminal murder and child maltreatment following the discovery of her 1-year-old daughter’s body in a pond last week, according to authorities.
On May 12, the Sandy Springs Police Department issued a press release stating that Calabrese-Lewis, aged 24, had been arrested and detained in the Fulton County Jail. According to police, on May 11 at approximately 6:40 p.m., officers were called to the Concourse business complex located in Sandy Springs, an Atlanta suburb.
The reason for the call was due to an episode experienced by Lewis. As per the statement, the father of the child arrived and inquired about the whereabouts of the baby. According to reports, Lewis claimed that the infant had died in a swimming pool.
Police reported that a significant search was conducted, resulting in the discovery of 1-year-old Nirvana Oliver in a body of water. A young girl was transported to Atlanta’s Children’s Hospital, where she was declared deceased. Reports from 11 Alive, 13WMAZ, and Fox 5 Atlanta indicate that law enforcement officials responded to a business on the previous day in connection with a welfare check related to suspected child abuse.
The incident involved an individual named Lewis and a minor whose identity has not been disclosed. According to reports, no charges were filed as the police reportedly claimed that they did not find any evidence of a criminal offense. According to 11 Alive, police escorted the mother and juvenile back to their residence and contacted the child’s father. A referral was then made to the Georgia Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS).
Asia Calabrese-Lewis has been arrested as a suspect in the murder of her daughter, Nirvana Oliver.
As per a statement obtained by 13WMAZ, DFCS is collaborating with law enforcement regarding the investigation into the death. As per the statement, a case was opened and a home visit was attempted on May 11.
According to the speaker, the loss of Nirvana is a tragic event, and they express their condolences to the deceased’s family and friends. The cause of Nirvana’s death remains undisclosed. However, according to 11 Alive, Nirvana’s grandfather, Kenneth Oliver, reported that Lewis left with his granddaughter on Thursday evening and returned alone.
According to reports, investigators were on the lookout for Lewis shortly after the incident. It is alleged that when questioned about the whereabouts of the girl after her detention, Lewis responded with the statement, “F the baby,” as per the source.
As per an arrest warrant obtained by Fox 5 Atlanta, it has been reported that Lewis was captured on security camera footage arriving at a retention pond close by, approximately 90 minutes prior to the discovery of Nirvana’s body by the authorities. After being out of frame for several minutes, the mother was seen leaving the area without any clothing.
A GoFundMe campaign has been established by the family to assist with funeral costs for Nirvana, who would have celebrated her second birthday on June 18. A fundraiser has been initiated by the loved ones of Nirvana’s father to support him during his time of grief.
The fundraiser aims to collect donations to help him finance his daughter’s memorial and also provide him with funds to take some time off work to mourn the loss of his baby girl. The fundraiser reads, “As we continue to support our brother/son in his time of grief, we ask for donations to help him fund her memorial as well as funds to allow him to take some time off work to grieve the loss of his baby girl.”
Kenneth Oliver stated that his granddaughter had the ability to illuminate any room she walked into. The reason for her death has not been disclosed by the authorities. The investigation, as per authorities, is still ongoing. It is currently unclear whether Lewis has entered a plea or retained legal representation to speak on her behalf.
