    I want to know what these new injuries were. Basically, what I want to know is did this child die because the original injuries, ruled to be possibly consistent with a fall, were not treated properly, or were there really new injuries?

    Something like this, all it takes is one doctor that realizes that they could potentially be responsible for the child's death to make that call and say with a straight face that the injuries on the child currently are not the injuries from a few days before. That's it. At that point, someone is going to be arrested.

    Not that I have any proof that happened this time, and not that I have any desire to defend this man if he is involved in any way in the child's death. However, something doesn't seem right here.

    Thanks, JeannieC, for starting this thread with so many links. I saw an article in the N&O, IIRC, but certainly did not see the articles that you have cited. Good research on your part, J-C! (Although I have been reading the N&O since I was able to read -- many years! -- the paper does have a certain amount of tunnel-vision where the Charlotte area is concerned -- just in case you've never noticed.... But it's what we've got here, and I still like to read it...)

    And so, we have another heart-breaker. Even if the injuries turn out to be "accidental," which doesn't look at all likely, someone needs to answer for this child's death. Rarely is a 2 yr old fine one minute & literally dead the next unless something awful happened in between -- sickness or injury.

    So the articles say the boyfriend was baby-sitting. What about the mother? I didn't see her name mentioned anywhere -- maybe I missed it -- but I did read the articles twice, looking for it. Is she a minor? Will a 2nd arrest come later? This seems a bit odd to me. Maybe someone can fill these details in for me -- I feel a bit dull-witted not knowing more....

    Jeannie, you said you were familiar with the area -- is Waterford Lakes a "nice" section of town? Young families, young professionals, students, a "regular" middle class area? If you know.

    Anyway, a big thanks, J-C. Another quilt candidate, huh?

    I'm really confused as to why this baby was released back to the same environment where he was severely injured a couple of weeks ago?????

    If the injuries treated a couple of weeks ago initiated investigation by LE, then wth was the baby released back into the same home????

    Someone really dropped the ball on this little child.

    Lonetraveler, that's my thought too. In one way or another, someone dropped the ball. Why was a two year old with a skull fracture released that quickly in the first place, whether it was accidental or not?

    Exactly, one more time! It makes me sick. Another father in prison, mother hooking up with some guy, and the baby ends up dead! Forgive me if I sound angry. I AM!

    I haven't been able to find anything about the mother. No a word! I just don't get it!

    They lived at the Waterford Lakes Apartments. Here's a link. Look for yourself. Not high dollar apartments but not trash by no means.

    Yes these were new injuries. He was airlifted due to the severity of the injuries...Note Injuries.

    Previously he had only (not minimalizing that injury at all) a head injury.

    This article has a picture of DJ. His father lived in Rochester, NY.

    He is precious! If anyone can copy his picture over I would appreciate it and I'm sure everyone else would too.
