Police arrived at the apartment and, according to the official, found Ms Eason doing CPR on Jalayah. The girl was taken to NYC Health & Hospitals/Lincoln by emergency services but was confirmed deἀd there.
According to an unnamed source with knowledge of Ms Eason’s social service records, Ms Eason was the subject of an abuse and neglect report involving Jalayah’s 8-year-old brother last year. Even though the Administration for Children’s Services did not confirm the allegations, comments in the family’s file pointed to issues at home.
According to the file, the brother’s mother hit and kicked the youngster for drinking out of the sink, and the child reported to school in October with a bruised and swollen face, telling a teacher that his mother had done it.
In addition to missing most school days, the school said the brother frequently wasn’t picked up until an hour after departure, often wore the same soiled clothes for days, and had a strong urine odour.
A caseworker who visited the flat a week later reported seeing no signs of physical abuse on the brother. After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder during the epidemic, Ms Eason told a caseworker that she had never sought treatment. She didn’t give any reason for her son’s repeated absences from class. (It does not appear that 5-year-old Jalayah was attending school then.)

The caseworker was told by Jalayah’s brother that their mother had punched him but that he still felt safe and secure around her. During a meeting with A.C.S., the school promised to oversee Jalayah’s brother. Even though he still missed a lot of class, A.C.S. deemed the allegations of abuse and neglect unsubstantiated two months after opening the case.
There has been a lack of personnel at the organization. Caseworkers in the agency’s Bronx North field office, which serves Ms Eason’s area, reportedly needed help making house visits and had asked for volunteers’ assistance, according to a person with knowledge of Ms.
Eason’s file. An A.C.S. spokesperson stated that central office caseworkers had been sent to the Bronx North office to assist. According to A.C.S., caseworkers in the Bronx North have a caseload of 12.5, which is nearly 17% higher than the citywide average.
Michelle Abreu, whose flat is just below where Jalayah was found, said the police informed her of the tragedy on Friday morning. “I just started crying because it’s sad,” Ms Abreu said in an interview with her young nephew in the building.
