    What an absolutely beautiful smile Major had! I can't even imagine never seeing him grin again, not hearing him laugh. :no:

    Yes, katydid, Major appeared to be a complete joy! Just looking at him warmed my heart, and broke it, in an instant.

    Rest In Peace, sweet little :angel:

    Another precious little one, gone far too soon!!!

    Charges DISMISSED against man arrested in the death of Major Howard

    Cleveland 19 Digital Team

    Jan 26, 2016 12:01 PM

    CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Charges were dismissed without prejudice Tuesday for the suspect accused of killing*Major Howard.

    Aaron Dunnings, 23, was arrested January 12 and charged with shooting and killing the 3-year-old*last September.*He was being held on a*$1.5M bond.

    Major*was shot while sitting in a*car on East 113th Street and later died following surgery at*MetroHealth Medical Center. *Rob'Dasha Smith, 24, Major's godmother, was shot in the leg, but*survived.
    [...]
    According to prosecutors, Dunnings*case was dismissed at this time and he*was given credit for the 12 days of jail time he served.

    * * * * *

    There is no specific reason given for why they dropped the charges.

    I hope they find who did this to Major. He is such an adorable baby and deserved so much more out of life!

    I'm curious as to the other evidence that was against him in addition to the mother's eyewitness sighting.
