Homicide Warrant Arrest for 2018 Toddler Death
(Posted 4/25/2019)

On 4/24/2019, the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department Investigation Unit obtained a warrant of arrest for 31-year-old Eleana M. Carbajal of Olivehurst, following a 4-month long Coroner’s investigation into the suspicious death of her child in December 2018. The toddler boy, who would have turned two in February, was pronounced deceased at Rideout Hospital just after 6:30 a.m. on 12/24/2018, after being brought unresponsive to the hospital by his mother, identified as Eleana Carbajal. The mother had reported the toddler had drowned in the bathtub earlier in the morning and that she had attempted CPR for several hours, before eventually driving the boy to the hospital. Along with inconsistencies in Carbajal’s statement, medical professionals noted the child had multiple injuries and appeared malnourished. Autopsy and toxicology results determined the child’s cause of death to be hypoxia due to acute aspiration pneumonia with other significant conditions of malnutrition and methamphetamine exposure. Carbajal was arrested at her Olivehurst home in the 1500 block of 6th Avenue at 10:00 p.m. 4/24/19 and booked into the Yuba County Jail for 187(a)PC/Murder and 273a(a)PC/Child Cruelty with a bail of one million dollars.
