A 20-year-old father in Texas was arrested after his 8-month-old daughter drowned in a bathtub while he was too “engrossed in video games” to save her life.

According to a news release from the Burkburnett Police Department, officers on May 14, 2023, responded to a 911 call regarding an “unresponsive infant.”

Upon arriving at the Burkburnett, Texas home, police said they found the infant girl “tragically deceased after being taken from the bathtub.”

Authorities said that the infant’s father, 20-year-old Justin Ray Kidwell, was the only adult present at the time of the incident.

Police detectives worked alongside Texas Rangers to conduct a months-long investigation into the “heartbreaking” young child’s death.

Authorities said that forensic examination of Kidwell’s computer revealed that the young father was “too engrossed” in his video games to supervise his child.

Based on the timeline police established, a warrant was issued for Kidwell’s arrest on one count of felony murder.
