Cops: Now-deceased grandma OD’d toddler on methadone

Grandson, 2, died last December


EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Police say a 58-year-old Eugene woman gave her 2-year-old grandson a fatal overdose of methadone.

The boy, Max Maciejewski, stopped breathing and died last December while in the care of his grandmother, Carol Lumsden.

The Register-Guard reports a medical examiner determined Max’s official cause of death to be intoxication from methadone, and police said this week they have evidence Lumsden gave him the powerful narcotic.

She could have been charged with manslaughter, but died six weeks after her grandson of complications from the flu.
