Methed Up Florida Mom Charged In The Death Of Her 4-Month-Old Child

A Florida mother, previously convicted on meth trafficking charges, has been charged with the death of her baby by methamphetamine toxicity.

Today, 34-year-old Andrea Dunmire was charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of her child.

Dunmire is already in custody following her recent arrest during the Volusia Bureau of Investigation’s “Operation Guess Who,” which dismantled a meth distribution ring led by Christina Guess.

Dunmire’s baby was about 4.5 months old when he died on Dec. 9, 2021, in a camper behind a vacant home at 1695 W. Euclid Ave., DeLand.

The medical examiner determined his cause of death was acute methamphetamine toxicity.

The Sheriff’s Office investigation found Dunmire shared a bed with her baby, and that he slept cradled in her arms on a fold-down couch while methamphetamine was stashed in her bra.

The medical examiner’s report stated: “Because the decedent was a four-month-old, who was completely dependent on the actions of others for feeding and because of the neglect in allowing an infant to be exposed to controlled dangerous substances, the manner of death is homicide.”

A concurrent investigation into Dunmire’s trafficking activity found that on Dec. 7, two days before the infant’s death, she requested 14 grams of methamphetamine from a supplier.

On Dec. 13, four days after her son’s death, she reached out to the supplier again to facilitate another deal.

Last week, Dunmire accepted a plea deal in connection to a previous meth trafficking arrest by VSO that carries a sentence of 8 years, 9 months in prison.

She has been in custody since December 22, 2021, and will remain in custody on her current charges.
