The medical examiner has identified the 3-year-old child who was discovered dead in a South Tacoma apartment last month, afflicted with wounds, burns, and bruises that were allegedly inflicted by his mother.
Prince Lewis of Tacoma passed away on February 12 at an apartment in the 3200 block of South Mason Avenue, according to a press release from the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office on March 6.
According to the office, the reason and method of the toddler’s death are still under investigation. Nevertheless, murder charges against the toddler’s mother, 25-year-old Ivey Lewis, claimed that a preliminary autopsy revealed he died from blunt-force trauma to the head.
Lewis is still being detained at the Pierce County Prison in lieu of a $2 million bond on two counts of first-degree murder and one of second-degree murder.

After her kid passed away, the lady was allegedly under the care of Child Protective Services, according to the charge papers. According to the records, she received the kid back from foster care six months earlier.
When a friend dropped by after the Super Bowl and observed the kid seemed chilly to the touch, she contacted 911 and Tacoma Police Department officers were sent to the mother’s residence. Lewis informed the police that her son was unconscious in a bedroom. According to the reports, the youngster was rigid and unresponsive when the officers tried to perform CPR on him.
Lewis was questioned by cops during which she was asked why she didn’t dial 911 sooner. When she saw him unresponsive, she reportedly said she didn’t contact 911 because she was unsure of what to do.
