The Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death of 4-year-old Nicholas Odze a homicide.
On September 10, 2009, his father Allan Odze found Nicolas in his bed unresponsive and not breathing. Nicolas was transported to Coral Springs Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Police are investigating this case as a homicide as a result of the Medical Examiner’s findings and statements that Nicholas’ mother, Raisa Bernabe gave him the adult prescription Lunesta to make him go to sleep.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Jill Shelton of the Coral Springs Police Department at 954-346-1222.
