Autopsies determine 2 Tulsa children accidentally drowned

TULSA, Okla. – Two Tulsa children whose bodies were found in waterways in May accidentally drowned, the Oklahoma medical examiner’s office ruled Friday.

Autopsy reports say both 3-year-old Miracle Crook and her 21-month-old brother, Tony Crook, drowned after being last seen on video holding hands and walking through an opening in a chain-link fence toward a rain-swollen creek that flows into the Arkansas River.

Miracle´s body was found in the river while Tony´s body was found in the creek.

Their mother, Donisha Willis, 24, was arrested at the time on charges of child neglect and assaulting a police officer.

The neglect charges have since been upgraded to second-degree murder, and Willis has pleaded not guilty. She remains jailed on $500,000 bond, according to jail records.

Police have said Willis, who did not have custody of the children, broke into an apartment where the children were with a caretaker. The caretaker left the apartment and later returned with the legal guardian to find Willis passed out on a couch and the children missing.
