It has now been two months since the horrific death of 9-month old Zachary Jackson. In the afternoon of July 17, 2018, Zachary was found unresponsive inside the home of Joseph and Debbie Dodd. Earlier that day, Zachary’s mom had dropped her infant at the Dodd Family Daycare, in Clermont, Florida. That was the last time she saw him alive. At 4:22 p.m., when Zachary was discovered, he was in a car seat, blue, and unresponsive.
Today, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate what happened inside the home that caused Zachary’s death. The owners of the daycare were also interviewed by DCF investigators immediately after this happened. The Dodds said that earlier in the day Zachary tried to climb out of his playpen and fell, however their story did not match Zachary’s injuries.
