As a followup to a prior post on this incident, a Jacksonville man (Andrew Gomez) – age 18 – has been criminally charged with the drowning death of a mother (Tiffany Cecconi) and her daughter (Kaylani). Prior news reports on this story stated that a mother and daughter drowned at the same time. The story seemed odd in that an apparently healthy 18 year old and her baby drowned at the same time in a swimming pool. Investigation by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office along the State Attorney’s Office led to the arrest of Mr. Gomez who is being held without bail in the Duval County / Jacksonville, Florida Jail. When authorities / law enforcement arrived on the scene, they found Andrew Gomez naked in the pool. By this time, Tiffany was already dead. Kaylani was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The untimely and deaths of Tiffany and Kaylani are tragic events for their family and the community. You can read about this story at Man Arrested for Drowning Deaths of Mother and Child – Jacksonville, Florida.
