Police say that when paramedics arrived at Aniya’s home on Sunday, March 11, Aniya was in full cardiac arrest.
When she was placed in the ambulance, medics told police that they saw Day and Lewis standing near the entrance of the apartment building showing "no emotion that the child was being placed into the ambulance.”Several burn marks were on her right ankle that appeared to have blistered, popped open and dried, police said.

The girl’s mother, Sierra Day, didn’t have a criminal record in May 2017 when a report was filed by Aniya's daycare, Harbor Crest Daycare, for "abusing a minor." The daycare had been documenting injuries to Aniya since 2015 at that point.
According to police, a childcare center worker said Aniya wanted to be held and hugged, and constantly asked, “Am I being good?
Aniya’s arms and legs were "very thin, and you could see every bone in her ribs." It appeared she had been deceased "for some time," and her skin was cold to the touch.
