According to the sheriff’s office, Robin Harman went to sleep on her living room couch with her daughter Jennifer around 11 a.m. But when the 3-year-old girl’s aunt arrived at 2 p.m., she found only Robin asleep on the couch.
Soon after, Jennifer was found in the swimming pool behind the Alderwood Drive home. She was taken to the hospital but pronounced dead.
