IL - Chase Anderson, 22 mos, dies of head trauma, Alton, 8 March 2009
Mods, I didn't see this one posted, please merge if I overlooked a previous post for this little boy. TIA!
snipped from article:
" Authorities say an Alton woman has been charged with swinging her 22-month-old stepson against a door frame, inflicting a brain injury that later killed him.
The Madison County state's attorney's office on Tuesday charged 29-year-old Jami Renee Anderson with first-degree murder in Chase Anderson's death.
Alton Police Chief Chris Sullivan says someone called 911 on Sunday to report the boy had struck his head and was unconscious. He died Monday at Children's Hospital in St. Louis. "
Picture of Chase, and his stepmother located to top right of article:
snipped from that article:
"The boy's father told Harrison's daughter that for several weeks, he would come home from work and notice the child would have a bruise, a cut lip or a knot on his head, Harrison said.
"(Anderson) told him it was from a temper tantrum," Harrison said. "It escalated, and I don't know why. He didn't have tantrums."
She said the incidents were reported to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, "but nothing happened."
Sullivan said he has no record of anyone calling police regarding abuse of the child."
More info at link, pretty good article.
I read this on another blog, but won't link here: "Chase would have had turned two on April 13."
RIP Chase precious baby boy.
Anderson was being held Tuesday at Alton City Jail with no bond."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James
