Death of four year old in Coral Springs from sleeping pills ruled homicide

The death of a four-year-old Coral Springs boy who overdosed on sleeping pills has been ruled a homicide. Nicholas Odze was found in his bed unresponsive and not breathing on Sept. 10, 2009 and was transported to Coral Springs Medical Center by Coral Springs Fire Rescue who attempted to intubate and revive him.

All attempts to revive Nicholas Odze failed, and he was pronounced dead. A nurse at the hospital then reported to police that the child’s mother gave Odze Lunesta after he was having a hard time falling asleep. The next morning his father found him unresponsive.

This week, the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death of Nicholas Odze a homicide with the cause of death combined drug toxicity from Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, Ibuprofen and Eszopiclone.
