For Immediate Release:
On August 8, 2020 at 10:06am, Collin County Sheriff's Office (CCSO) deputies were dispatched to a residence located in the 9100 block of Highridge Road, Princeton, Texas regarding the possibility of an unreported death of an infant.
Later that morning, CCSO investigators located and interviewed the child's parents, identified as 42-year-old Roland Grabowski and 41-year-old Donna Grabowski. These two subjects initially declined to cooperate with investigators. A subsequent investigation by deputies resulted in the arrest of the Grabowski's for Abandoning or Endangering a Child, a 2nd degree felony.
After their arrest, the Grabowski's made a statement to investigators advising that on or around July 29, 2020, they awoke to find their one week old baby, Micah Grabowski, deceased in their bed. The Grabowski's confessed that they failed to notify or report the death to any law enforcement agency.
Investigators obtained and executed a search warrant at the residence, where they located the body of Micah Grabowski submerged in a bucket of tar, located in a shed behind the residence.
Roland Grabowski has been charged with Abandoning or Endangering a Child and Tampering With or Fabricating Physical Evidence and is being held in the Collin County Detention Facility on an $850,000.00 bond. Donna Grabowski is charged with Abandoning or Endangering a Child and two counts of Tampering With or Fabricating Physical Evidence. Ms. Grabowski is also being held in the Collin County Detention Facility on a $1,000,000.00 bond.
This investigation continues and additional felony charges are anticipated.
