The PSP’s investigation unit reported to the scene and conducted an investigation along with the York County Coroner’s Office. They found drug paraphernalia and “deplorable living conditions.” An autopsy of the infant, identified by the coroner’s office as Aurora Decker, determined that her cause of death was both hypothermia and methamphetamine toxicity.

Ashley Decker was taken to the York County Prison on May 12 after being charged the day prior by PSP’s Criminal Investigation Unit. McCachren was also charged with endangering the welfare of children. He has not yet been found by police.

Anyone with information regarding McCachren’s whereabouts is asked to contact PSP York at 717-428-1011.
