    OH - Tyrese Short, 3, beaten to death, Cincinnati, 28 Dec 2010

    I read about these two little ones a couple days ago & can't stop thinking about them...what a cycle of abuse here.

    I'm also hoping someone can help me understand how a 3yo is supposed to turn around a criminal....I haven't read much about those studies that condone or recommend that 'solution'.

    WALNUT HILLS - Tyrese Short was close to 3 years old when he was handed over to his father.

    The boy was supposed to help Christopher Dangerfield, a 48-year-old with a lengthy criminal record, turn his life around.

    But Dangerfield had other issues to contend with as well: the prospect of losing another son to the death penalty.

    And now in the span of seven months, a father and a son are accused of the same crime: killing children they were supposed to be caring for.

    Christopher Dangerfield was arrested in the death of Tyrese, and Lionell Dangerfield has been charged in the death of 3-month-old Zhi Merah Binford, his girlfriend's daughter.

    Tyrese was pronounced dead Tuesday at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

    Zhi was discovered dead on a couch in South Fairmount on May 31. Her skull had been fractured and her ribs broken. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters has recommended the death penalty for Lionell Dangerfield, 26.

    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Another precious baby lost due to the incompetence of CPS. Why was this man ever given custody with his criminal history? They thought it might straighten him out, so they used the child as an experiment. FAIL.

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Yep, you learn what you live. Like father, like son. No surprises here. Another reasons for tougher and longer sentences for child abusers.

    From April 2013:


    Christopher Dangerfield, 50, pleaded guilty last month to an aggravated murder charge in the 2010 death of Tyrese Short...

    On Monday, Dangerfield was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison...

    Dangerfield's adult son, Lionell Dangerfield, is already serving life in prison for killing his girlfriend's 3-month-old baby.
