The report, which was released Friday, April 14, by the Pima County Medical Examiner's Office, said Wyllow died from an infection brought on by blunt force injuries. She was also malnourished, which was listed as a serious contributing factor in her death.

The report said Wyllow did not test positive for any medications or drugs in her system.

Four people have been charged in connection with her death, including her mother.

Authorities have said all four suspects gave different versions of what happened to Wyllow.

Wyllow's mother Kylie Marie Brewer, Jon-Paul Bogdanowich Jr., Kaylie Ryan Gossett and Brianna Raidy are all facing charges of murder and felony child abuse charges.

Brewer, 19, and Bogdanowich, 19, were arrested Tuesday, Feb. 28. Gossett, 22, was arrested March 1 and Raidy, 26, was taken into custody March 16.

A week before Wyllow's death, the Pima County Sheriff's Department was called to the home to do a welfare check.

According to the court documents, Wyllow's biological father requested the check after Brewer allegedly posted about injecting drugs on social media. The deputy found that Wyllow was clean and appeared to be in good health at time.

Wyllow's condition was very different Feb. 19, the day she died at a local hospital.

Doctors told investigators the 6-month-old had bruises on her head, blood in her mouth and nose, fractures on both arms and legs, a right arm that was "grossly" displaced and her skin had started to marble. 

Brewer claims she was hospitalized with pneumonia from Feb. 16-18 and Gossett and Raidy were babysitting her child. Brewer said Gossett usually babysat five to six days out of the week.

Brewer said she never reported Gossett for these injuries because she was threatened by Gossett and claimed Gossett wouldn't allow her to see Wyllow sometimes.

She also said Gossett threatened her and said she would tell police, the landlord, and the Department of Child Services if Brewer ever reported the bruises.

However, Gossett told deputies she told Brewer on several occasions to take Wyllow to the emergency room. 

Deputies found a wooden pipe, digital scale and needles with unknown substances in the home. Brewer and Bogdanowich admitted to using meth on Feb. 14, less than a week before Wyllow died.

Gossett admitted to selling drugs but said she did not sell when she was taking care of the child.
