Iris in 1982
Iris Felice was the infant daughter of Roger and Molly Felice. It was originally thought that Iris died from SIDS, but her case was reopened after it was discovered that her hair was wet & there was water in her lungs.
Iris was a premature baby who would wake up many times a night. Her father, Roger, would sleep in the nursery and her older brother Devon would come check up on Iris to make sure she was safe.
After interviewing the family, Brie Romeo, Marta Chavez and Stella Bobker, it was discovered that Molly suffered from postpartum depression as well as the pressures of having two other children, a career and a failing marriage.
One night, while in a psychotic state, Molly takes Iris outside with the intention of killing herself and her baby, but she falls asleep and ends up letting Iris die of exposure in the snow. She later wakes up, takes Iris back inside the house, places her in her crib and falls asleep in her bedroom.
When Roger and Devon go to check on Iris, she is found deceased. Roger thinks that Devon drowned his little sister and convinces him to lie & say that Iris died in her crib. Molly blocks it all out and believes this story until the truth is taken from her 24 years later.
