During the investigation, police found that the girl’s mother, Mystique Sade Wadena, had been using and dealing fentanyl from her hotel room, the district attorney’s office said.

Her three children, who are all minors and not in her legal custody, visited their mother and two of them consumed some of the fentanyl pills, including the 12-year-old, the district attorney’s office said.

Wadena was taken into custody on Wednesday and faces charges of child abuse resulting in death and distribution of a controlled substance.

No other details were available as of Thursday morning.
