Child's death ruled an accident
Fairfield Ledger, The (IA) - Wednesday, February 2, 2000

Results of an autopsy performed on 2-year-old Dakota Leazer Wednesday show the boy died accidentally, Jefferson County Attorney Tim Dille said.

The boy, the son of Nichole Ready of Fairfield and Ryan Leazer of Glenwood, somehow became trapped in the frame of a bunk bed and hanged himself, said Dille.

Anytime a child dies an unnatural death, it is considered "suspicious," said Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Tim Sammons, who assisted the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office in the investigation. Dille said Tuesday the focus of the investigation was "to determine if there was a criminal act or to disprove a criminal act." Such investigations are routine in unnatural deaths, particularly when a child is involved, Dille said. Although the findings of state medical examiner Dr. Julia C. Goodin are preliminary, Dille said he is "very confident" the child's death was accidental and the investigation will be closed once a written report is received. "I am very confident in her findings," said Dille. "Very, very seldom are you going to have something different in the written report." Authorities became involved about noon Tuesday when a 911 call was received at the Jefferson County Law Center concerning the death of a 2-year-old child at a residence at 1200 1/2 E. Adams Ave. Responding were members of the sheriff's office, Fairfield Police Department and the RMMS-American Ambulance Service. The child was taken to Jefferson County Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at Raymond Funeral Home.
