AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) — Austin police are asking for any information on a mother accused of killing her one-year-old daughter last month.
At approximately 3:48 p.m. Jan. 17, police responded to a call from 29-year-old Tamara Calvery, who reported that her 22-month-old daughter Pearl had struck her head on a dresser and was having trouble breathing.
When officers arrived, they found the one-year-old unconscious and not breathing. Officials said they immediately began CPR until Austin-Travis County EMS arrived and took over.
Pearl was transported to Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas where she died from her injuries two days later on Jan. 19.
