A 14-year-old child allegedly found Armitage on May 6 not breathing in a bathroom of her home on Clay Street, according to court records, and called 9-1-1.

“While (an officer) was attempting to locate any sign of drug use, he observed a filthy house with a strong smell of urine, and feces (on) the floors,” a police report says.

Armitage was transported to the hospital from her home after two doses of Narcan at the scene and another in the ambulance wasn’t enough to wake her up, according to police.

The children were released to their father, according to the report.
