    On September 2nd of last year two-year old Kyler DeShawn Jones was taken to St. John’s Express Care at 1313 S. Range Line Road in Joplin unconscious and not breathing by his ba[​IMG]bysitter....the little boy was pronounced dead about 15 minutes later.

    According to cops, Kyler had multiple bruising on his body and an autopsy performed on the toddler was inconclusive, however, the coroners ruling revealed that Kyler's death wasn't an accident.

    Awww...what a sweet picture of Kyler. It is so sad that his life was ended so soon after it began. Maybe there will be justice for him now.

    This is an article from September:

    Lewis said investigators are awaiting further results of the autopsy while continuing to interview witnesses and family members of the child.

    “At this point, there aren’t any charges being sought,” he said. “It’s still at the preliminary stages of the investigation.”

    The boy was brought in at 11:03 a.m. Tuesday to St. John’s Express Care, 1313 S. Range Line Road. He was transported by ambulance to the emergency room of St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Joplin, where he was pronounced dead at 11:17 a.m.

    The child’s parents have been identified as Terry Miller and Meagan Jones, ages not available. Lewis said the child’s name was not released until Friday because the father lives out of state and authorities had some difficulties notifying him. He said the father has come to Joplin in the wake of his son’s death.

    Neither Jones, who lives in Joplin, nor Miller could be reached for comment.

    Lewis said the boy was not in Jones’ care immediately prior to being brought to the clinic. She had left the child in the care of a Joplin couple, he said. Lewis declined to identify the couple Friday but indicated that one of them brought the boy to the clinic.

    I wonder what relation, if any, the arrested man has to the family and if he is the one who brought the little boy to the clinic.

    Jury selection begins today in Jasper County for a man charged with second-degree murder for the death of a two year-old little boy he was babysitting in 2008. (UPDATE - Lang entered an Alford plea during jury selection to the little boys murder.)


    On September 2nd, 2008, Byron Dewayne Lang, now 21, took two-year old Kyler DeShawn Jones to St. John’s Express Care at 1313 S. Range Line Road in Joplin unconscious and not breathing. The little boy was pronounced dead about 15 minutes later.
