LCSO- Arrest in death of 18 month old

Liberty County:  The ongoing investigation of the death of 18-month old Haley Dowdy resulted in the arrest of Rebekah Dowdy, age 44, grandmother of the child, at her home around midnight, July 8th by Sgt. Michelle Deshotel of the  Liberty County Sheriff’s Department. The grandmother was arrested at her home on a recent indictment issued by a Liberty County Grand Jury for “Endangering and Abandoning a Child”, a 2nd degree felony. She is presently in the county jail waiting to appear before a Judge. No bond has been set at this time.

In the early stage of this death investigation, which occurred on August 14, 2012, Jack Hollis, uncle to the child, was arrested and charged with “Injury to a Child” and placed in the County jail for this offense.
