Child Dies After Mom Injects Hand Sanitizer Into Him

(Plaquemines Parish, LA) A woman in Louisiana confessed to injecting hand sanitizer into the feeding tube of her 17-month-old son.

Erika Wigstrom, 20, is charged with first degree murder.

Lucas Ruiz battled health issues.

Prosecutors say his mother poisoned him at least twice with alcohol, hand sanitizer and perfume.

Lucas’ autopsy showed his blood alcohol level was .28 percent, more than three times the legal limit for an adult.

Wigstrom also told deputies she poisoned her son in the hospital in October of 2012 as they waited for him to have surgery.

At the time, his father, Cesar Ruiz, confessed to pouring rum in his feeding tube.

Now Wigstrom is saying she poured the rum and she also injected her son’s feeding tube with perfume.
