Miramar police were once again called to the home of a woman who tried to drown her baby in a community lake in July — this time to find a woman unconscious, police said late Tuesday.

The woman was taken to Memorial Hospital Miramar, where she died.

Police spokeswoman Natasha Richardson would not confirm Tuesday if the woman was Inakesha Armour, who was facing two counts of attempted murder.

Armour was released Aug. 1 on $100,000 bond.

All Richardson could say, citing an active investigation, was Miramar Police and Fire Rescue responded to a 911 call that there was an unconscious woman inside the Armour home in the 5300 block of Southwest 155th Avenue.

Armour’s attorney Jeremy Kroll could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.

On July 1, Armour walked out of her Miramar home, telling her mother that she was taking her 3-month old son Cayden to see a neighbor.

Instead she took him to the lake and threw him in. She pulled him out several minutes later, she later told police.

A passerby stopped and helped Cayden, who remains in the hospital on a ventilator. Armour told police at the time she was suffering from postpartum depression and had tried to kill her baby before by feeding him adult cough medicine and trying to smother him with a pillow.

Last month, Cayden’s father, Conlan Armour, and grandmother Grace Ann Brooks were arrested and charged with failure to report child abuse and child neglect.

No one could be reached at the Armour home Tuesday night.
