But when toxicology testing was done, Kobe was found to have been poisoned with methamphetamine by his grandmother, who had been babysitting him that day. She initially went on the run, but was eventually arrested and charged with murder.

Perpetrator: Tonya Monroe (Grandmother), charged with murder, possession of methamphetamine, and first degree cruelty to children.
