CHERRY HILL — A man was charged and arrested after cocaine and fentanyl were found in the system of a 2-year-old girl following her death on July 23.

Police were called to a home on Evergreen Avenue around 7:45 p.m. after the toddler stopped breathing, according to Camden County Prosecutor Grace MacAulay. First responders took the unconscious child to Cooper University Hospital where she was pronounced dead just after 9 p.m.

The investigation into her death found illegal substances in the girl's system. Drug paraphernalia was also found in the home near where the child was found, according to MacAulay.

Walter Clark was charged with first degree aggravated manslaughter, second degree aggravated assault, and two counts of second degree endangering the welfare of a child. He is being held at the Camden County Jail.

MacAulay did not disclose the relationship between Clark and the child.

Cherry Hill Police Chief Robert Kempf told that Clark and his girlfriend were babysitting the child for a friend.

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
