The young mother’s cause of death has not been revealed.
Odele gave birth to baby Shiloh on November 5 2022 at New York’s Mount Sinai hospital.
Family members have been left devastated following her death.
Mom Belinda Cape posted on social media: “Her sister Lucinda and I have been overwhelmed by the messages of support and love we have received, and your remembrances of how cherished Odele was to so many.
“Odele was greatly loved, and leaves a huge hole in our lives.”
And her sister Lucinda shared a heartbreaking post on her Instagram.
She said: “Words will never be enough to express the grief we are all feeling.
“I loved my little sister a lot and I will spend the rest of my life searching for her in everything.”
Belinda has recently shared heartbreaking pictures that showed Lucinda giving Shiloh her bottle.
She captioned the post: “Best big sister, best Aunty.”
And, Belinda celebrated the arrival of Shilah in a touching Instagram post in November.
She posted a heartwarming picture that showed Odele in her hospital gown cradling the newborn.
Belinda said: “Welcome to the world, Shiloh.”
Odele’s dad John Ventimiglia played the restauranteur Artie Bucco in the hit crime series The Sopranos.
He has also appeared in the popular CBS drama Blue Bloods.
The family has created a GoFundMe page and John’s former Sopranos co-star Stevie Van Zandt is among those who have donated.
More than $50,000 has been raised so far.
Clot shot or drug abuse??
…healthy enough to give birth a few months ago, lovingly cradling her beloved baby…so I’m going to rule out the drug overdose go-to-excuse. I’m going out on a limb and betting on the clot shot. The sad part is…what will happen to the baby? My daughter in law didn’t take the shot when she was pregnant, but she took it after giving birth…while she was breast feeding. My son…a Captain in The US Army had to take the shot…and immediately had terrible chest pain for a month, and a very bad cough. I didn’t realize how bad the cough was until I heard him on a Viber Call…and both watched and listened to the cough. It was deep and sounded terrible for several months. Throughout 2022 they and their kids had coughs, colds and sniffles throughout the year…and over Christmas my son’s lung detached from his chest wall and collapsed. He has gone from an incredibly healthy, vibrant young man…to recovering from various surgeries to reattach his lung. I hold my breath every day waiting for bad news. What a terrible way to live.
What is a clot shot???
