On May 9, 2023, at 3:30 pm, deputies from the Norco Station responded to a report of a juvenile medical aid at the 100 block of 8th Street in Norco. When deputies arrived, they found a female 17-month old juvenile not breathing. Life saving measures were conducted by deputies and Cal-Fire but the juvenile was unresponsive and was pronounced deceased. Investigators from the Jurupa Valley Station responded and believed the death to be suspicious. The Central Homicide Unit was contacted and responded to assume the investigation. The victim’s mother, Jennifer Johanna Allen, a 32-year old female from Norco, was later arrested for murder. During the course of the investigation, evidence was obtained showing fentanyl played a role in the juvenile’s death. This is an active investigation and anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact Investigator Adams of the Central Homicide Unit at (951) 955–2777.
