Authorities continue investigation of toddler death

Richmond County sheriff’s investigators continue to investigate the Wednesday death of 2-year-old Daniel Stocker.

Investigators said they are working with the Department of Family and Child Services to see if the family has a history of reports with the agency.

The child’s body was discovered in a murky pool in the backyard of his home on the 3800 block of Creighton Place around 12:30 p.m.

The child’s mother, Lisa Stocker, was booked into the Richmond County Jail on Wednesday evening on charges of involuntary manslaughter and deprivation of a minor. Investigators said Stocker claimed to be asleep when the child went missing. She later discovered he was missing after a neighbor alerted her around 9 a.m. that her dogs were roaming the neighborhood.

An investigation revealed the child was seen outside the home unattended shortly after 7 a.m.
