According to the State Forensic Medical Examiner, Aidan died from chronic starvation brought on by untreated juvenile appetite disorder.

Jensen called 911 on January 12th of this year. When police arrived at the home, they found a very calm Jensen sitting in her living room holding her son.

An officer attempted to revive Aidan but soon realized he was already deceased, as rigor mortis had set in. The victim was taken to a local hospital where a nurse discovered he had been dead for some time.

It was also noted his weight was consistent with that of a 2 to three year old child. Jenson informed police that Aiden had medical problems including a hormonal growth and pituitary gland issues.

Investigators later learned Aidan had not seen a doctor since 2008 and he had a history of being severely underweight. The autopsy revealed Aidan’s stomach was empty and that all of his medical problems were treatable.

The murder and neglect charges were filed this week after her arrest last week.
