    An autopsy found the boy sustained "blunt force trauma on all extremities, including the torso, sides, chest, stomach, neck and head area," according to court documents. "Also specifically noted were a broken rib on the left side" and hemorrhaging in the boy's right lung and elsewhere.

    It is horrible to continue to come across more and more reports of infants and young children who were battered and beaten to death by one, or both, unfit parents. Even if the murderers are sentenced to prison for life with no possibility of parole - it is not going to make any difference to the helpless little ones who can smile no more, laugh no more, and cry no more. Little Derik, I am so sorry for the fear and pain you suffered before your life was brutally ended too soon. I am sorry that there was no one to protect you and keep you safe and loved, with constant hugs. RIP sweetheart.

    Price admitted, police said, that "over the course of the last couple of days," he "repeatedly whipped with a black belt and punched his son, DJ, about the body and head to the point where DJ eventually began acting differently, lost consciousness and ultimately died"

    Price told detectives he gave the child Ibuprofen to reduce the swelling he suffered after being punched and whipped and that he waited 10 or 15 minutes before calling 911. He also admitted to police that he tried to get the child to vomit by putting a charcoal briquette in a cup of water because he said he had overdosed on the Ibuprofen.

    Detectives went back to the home and recovered a bottle of Ibuprofen and three belts. Child detectives also spoke with Price’s 4-year-old daughter who witnessed the beating.
