Police Seek Baltimore Man in Death of Infant Son

Police Seek Baltimore Man in Death of Infant Son A 31-year-old man, who Baltimore police say is legally blind, is being sought in connection with the death of his five-month-old son. Officers responded to a call in the city’s Coppin Heights neighborhood on Friday, June 9, and found the infant unconscious. They say the boy had bruises over most of his body. The child was immediately taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say that the suspect uses a walking stick because he is legally blind. Medical examiners concluded that the child had suffered “multiple blunt force trauma to the head,” and speculate that the walking stick may have been the weapon. The suspect faces charges of first and second degree murder, first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment and child abuse. Police say the suspect told them the boy had fallen off the bed and sustained head injuries.
