Citizens in a neighborhood in Medina, Ohio, are trying to recover after a shocking discovery was found in the home of Eric Warfel. A cable company worker found the man's 20-month-old daughter Ember was found dead and rotting inside of her crib, reported WEWS NewsChannel5. Eric, age 34, is being charged with abuse of a corpse, and other charges are currently pending.

While authorities were searching for the mother, they learned that Eric had fully custody of his daughter. During the couple's divorce proceedings last year, a judge ruled that Ember's mother was unfit to care for the child due to her issues with substance abuse. In addition to Ember's death, Eric is being investigated for possible drug charges after police raided the hotel where he was staying and found a substance believed to be cocaine in the room.
