Dr Phil: Fake Autopsy Report
Dr Phil recapped that 19-month-old Darby died of unknown causes in June 2010. In September 2010, four-year-old Kiera also died. Both kids were living with mother Julia and Codey, to whom she is now married. Darby’s father, Tommy, questioned the similarities between the deaths. Next, Codey’s mother Cyndi told Dr Phil that the constant torment and accusations have kept the family from being able to grieve.
Dr Phil: Autopsy Cover Up?
Cyndi said that Codey and Julia have been targeted with abuse and torment. She called her son compassionate and proud to become a father. Cyndi said she does have questions about the kids’ deaths, but she did not think that Codey or Julia had anything to do with it.
According to Cyndi, there were no incisions on Kiera’s body that would indicate an autopsy was performed. “I think somebody messed up really big, and I think there’s just a cover up now,” she said. “These accusations are going to continue to fly around until we know something.”
Dr Phil: Subdural Hematoma Brain Injury
Cyndi joined the fracas on Dr Phil’s stage to elaborate about her autopsy claims. Dr Phil said he has read a detailed autopsy report, and he wondered why she insists that this never could have happened.
She discussed everything involved in preparing Kiera for her funeral, which is how she said she knows the body was never properly examined. She shared pictures with Dr Phil privately to help make her point about the autopsy. The report, Dr Phil said, identified a “subdural hematoma” in Kiera’s brain that caused her death. Cyndi insisted this is a lie. But why?
Julia said her theory is that Tommy and Cheryl had already alerted the authorities and made them suspicious of the couple due to Darby’s earlier death. Codey said the autopsy report is littered with errors, but Cheryl claimed they were typos.
Dr Phil: Autopsy Report Inaccuracies
Codey said that Kiera’s eye color was listed incorrectly on the report, which also did not include two prominent birthmarks. Tommy said that he was more concerned about the injuries than the minor details or mistakes.
“There are answers to this, but we can’t get it by pointing fingers,” Julia said, asserting that the children both died from reactions to vaccinations. Dr Phil pressed her for more details, and Julia said that it only occurred to her after Kiera’s death that there could be a connection.
The immunization cocktail made her drowsy, Julia said, crediting her mother’s intuition as the infallible source. Dr Phil said that he respects that, but wanted to make sure he was not missing any evidence.
Dr Phil: Did Kiera Have an Autopsy?
He also turned to Cyndi to have her elaborate about her theory that no autopsy was ever done. She told Dr Phil she thought it must have been a mistake that was covered up after the investigation snowballed. “I think they failed to do the autopsy,” Cyndi said.
Julia jumped in and pointed out that Darby’s birthdate was on Kiera’s autopsy, among other minor mistakes. Obviously these families had two different stories in mind. Dr Phil did get Julia and Codey to agree that the deaths of two children in the same household within three months is unusual.
