Woman Charged after Injected Fecal Matter into Son’s IV

Tiffany Alberts, 41, of northwestern Indiana, now can add the charge of attempted murder to her previous six counts of aggravated battery and neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury, which had been filed on November 22. According to court documents, Alberts reportedly informed police she had been injecting fecal matter into her 15yo son’s IV tube beginning on November 13, while he was hospitalized for leukemia at Indianapolis’ Riley Hospital for Children. Staff alerted authorities after observing Alberts injecting her son’s IV with an unknown substance, and due to the patient developing multiple infections. Alberts’ attorney has yet to make a statement.
