According to MEAWW, a 911 call was made at Kipp's home on June 11, 2019. First responders found the deceased infant "lying face down on a sofa, where Kipp had placed him hours before," according to a statement released by the police.

WGXA-TV reported that Kipp gave investigators multiple stories about how the baby died before admitting that she was angry with him and left him on the couch so she could sleep a few hours. The outlet reported that the child was found lying face down on the sofa with his head between two cushions.

“My Office will always go the extra mile to uncover the facts and to prosecute these cases involving injury or death to these, the youngest and most vulnerable, members of our communities," District Attorney Anita R. Howard told WGXA News at the time.
