    While the first article states that the suspect was an acquaintance of the mother and an employee of the school district, this one says he was also Dayvon’s basketball coach.

    Downey man charged in fatal beating of 6-year-old boy, held on $2M bail

    Tuesday, December 31, 2019 6:47AM
    DOWNEY, Calif. (KABC) -- A 23-year-old Downey man has been charged in the fatal beating of a 6-year-old boy who was in his care and is being held on $2 million bail.

    Suspect Tyler D'Shaun Martin-Brand, 23, appeared in a tense Downey courtroom on Monday but did not enter a plea.
    [.....]
    Martin-Brand appeared in court but did not sit down, instead choosing to stand in a doorway during the proceedings. His arraignment was continued until Jan. 16.
    [.....]
    Prosecutors say Dayvon was in the suspect's care over the holiday break when Martin-Brand severely beat the young boy at his Downey apartment.

    Dayvon was taken to St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach on Thursday and died shortly after he arrived, officials said.

    We have a last name for Dayvon in this article:

    Downey Man Beat His 6-Year-Old Son To Death, Faces Second-Degree Murder Charges - The Inner Sane

    His Downey godfather severely beat a 6-year-old Long Beach boy who died last week while the child was in his care for the holiday break, officials said Monday. Dayvon Taylor was in his godfather’s attention for several days before he was beaten on Thursday, Dec. 26, and died of his injuries shortly after at St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said.



    @gitana1 - sorry to bother you - but could you find me a case # for this case? In Los Angeles County. TIA! [​IMG]

    Why was this little one spending Christmas with this guy and not with one of his parents?
    Why would the mom hand him off to him and not have him at home on Christmas so his dad could bring his presents? Did she want rid of him for some reason?
    Yet his sister was at home.
    Something hinky.

    Thanks for all your work on this sad, sad situation, @Niner. ;)

    It's so hard to understand, as are all of the child cruelty/death cases we see. Could the man not see that the little guy was dying? Did he care? Or did he just want little Dayvon dead?
    Dammit.
    Another angel flies up and is now at peace. Too soon, too soon.
