Mother who buried 2-year-old faces possible new investigation

SANFORD, Fla. — Sanford investigators, who are still investigating the death of 2-year-old Tariji Gordon, have decided to also review the death of her twin brother in 2011.

Last week, Rachel Fryer told police she placed Tariji in a suitcase and took her to Putnam County to bury her, after the 2-year-old was unresponsive one morning.

Fryer is in jail on charges of neglect, but the death investigation continues, detectives said.

In 2011, Tariji's twin, Tavont'ae Gordon, died while his mother slept with the infant on a couch. It was ruled an accidental suffocation.

Sanford investigators are reviewing that case to see if it should be re-opened for further investigation.
