    TX - Jesse Fisher, 3, beaten to death, Denton County, 30 March 2010

    being taken off life support.

    Curtis Leon Copeland, 26, remained in the Denton County Jail Thursday in lieu of $500,000 bail on that charge and $25,000 on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in Bowie. He was the boyfriend of the child's mother, according to sheriff’s reports.

    Jesse Fleming Fisher Jr. died at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. He had suffered severe head trauma, a broken pelvis, a broken neck, black eyes and bruises all over his body. He also had been sexually assaulted, Denton County Sherriff's Sgt. Roger Griggs said.

    Copeland had told investigators the boy fell down the stairs last Friday at his mother’s house but had been playing outside Wednesday after she dropped him off at Copeland’s house north of Krum. She was on her way to a hospital to deliver another baby, and she also left a 1-year-old with Copeland.

    Copeland was not the father of any of the children, Griggs said.

    Copeland began baby-sitting the toddler and his 1-year-old brother last week when their 19-year-old mother called the Sanger man to say that he needed to watch them while she had another baby, authorities said.

    Griggs said CPS has had several reports of the mother being physically abusive to the children.

    Channel 4 Fox News reported that CPS had 4 reports of prior abuse and at least one was found to be substantiated.

    The mom is only 19 and has a 3 year old, 1 year old, and a newborn! None are of which are from the boyfriend that has been charged! This teenager needs to have her tubes tied.

    I'm a little confused because it sounds like the child arrived at his house in that horrid condition? Why isn't the mom charged yet if she had more responsibility over the childs death than the "boyfriend"? Or maybe we just haven't heard enough sides to the story yet. I don't blame anyone for not taking a polygraph. I would never take one if my life depended on it.

    This is the article I'm confused by. I am just really wondering why the mom hasn't been arrested yet. I guess also this happened over a 3 day time frame? She drops him off injured and then by day 3 the boyfriend realizes he needs hospitalization?

    Video report & photo

    I can't get over the fact that CPS had 4 reports, one last month that was still being investigated? This little boy could have and should have been saved. This 26 yo old guy arrested told neighbors that Jesse had been throwing up blood for days. Why didn't he call 911. How could anyone sexually abuse and kill a 3 yo. Jesse was tortured.

    RIP Angel Jesse

    ITA, I don't know except that she just gave birth and maybe was still in the hospital.

    The video report says her name is Sherry Worthy, not sure about the spelling.
    She deserves 'credit' here, too and is being investigated.

    You know, the more I read here, the more I really do wish we could do that. I wish we could at least make some form of birth control a condition for things like probation, or parole...

    I know it sounds bad, but for heaven's sake, this is getting so far out of hand. I'm beyond weary of seeing all the children of these reprehensible people pay the price for their irresponsible, or worse, behavior.

    Most of us would give more thought to bringing puppies into the world than they do about bringing all these innocent children into their awful lives.

    They later obtained a search warrant and found handwritten notes from Copeland to his girlfriend and his father, saying he had done “something bad” and was sick, a court document stated.

    Worthy has been investigated several times on reports of child abuse, the document stated, and neither she nor the children were supposed to have any contact with Copeland because he was a convicted felon.

    CPS is once again proven to be completely worthless. After so many reports of abuse, why were these children still exposed to this environment? What the hell does it take to make these people do their jobs? NOW they take the kids into custody? Why did this little boy have to die before they would do their jobs? This poor baby suffered so much. There seems to be no end to the cruelty people are willing to inflict on innocent children. My heart hurts.

    I noticed in the comments below one of the articles that someone said the mother had now been arrested. I couldn't find a story on it but I did find her listed at the Denton County Jail so it does appear to be true.
