Lola GriffithMESA, AZ – According to police, 27-year-old Lola “Tami” Griffith murdered her 5-year-old son inside a room at Cardon Children’s Medical Center before fatally shooting herself.

The bodies of Griffith and her son, Helious, were discovered by a nurse performing a bed check shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday. Griffith’s son had been a patient at the hospital for about a week.

“It appears that the mother for unknown reasons took the life of the child and then took her own life there in the room.” Mesa Police Detective Steve Berry said.

According to a fundraiser created by Griffith, her son suffered from Cerebral Palsy with Dystonia, has sensitivities to audio, odor, and touch, and suffers from extreme anxiety. She had been looking for help raising $1500 dollars for a vehicle, but had not gotten close to her goal.

Police say the Arizona Department of Child Safety do have an open case with the family, but that Griffith was her son’s legal guardian.

“I can tell you this family was actively involved with DCS (Arizona Department of Child Safety) and that it was an open case and that they were actively working on that as recently as two days ago,” Berry said. “I’m told they had a family member with the mom, child and all the family members that were involved.”

The hospital released the following statement:

Investigators from the Mesa Police Department have been at Cardon Children’s Medical Center looking into what they’re calling an apparent murder/suicide that occurred this morning in one of our patient rooms. Because of the nature of the investigation, we can’t comment on the situation or of those involved.

The safety of our patients, associates and visitors is paramount to us and is our top priority at this time. At no time were others impacted by this incident and we remain vigil in the safety of all we’re treating and seeing at Cardon Children’s Medical Center.

Banner Health does have a policy in place that prohibits firearms and weapons at all of our hospitals, health centers, and clinics that’s posted at our entry ways.

Our thoughts are with the family and their loss at this time. We’re directing all questions to the Mesa Police Department for any further comment related to this case.”
