Child’s death ruled a homicide

The parents of a 10-month-old child who died Thursday were taken into custody Friday by the Kent County Sheriff Office after an autopsy revealed the cause of the child’s death was neglect.

Police and rescue personnel responded to the scene of an unresponsive child in the 16000 block of Algoma Avenue in Solon Township about 12:06 p.m. on Thursday, August 2.

When deputies arrived, they found a 10-month-old girl not breathing. She was unresponsive and pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy was performed Friday, August 3. The cause of death was ruled as malnutrition/dehydration due to neglect on the part of the adult caregivers. Her death has been ruled a homicide.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office had only responded to the home once before on a matter unrelated to child welfare.

The parents were arrested Friday and lodged in the Kent County Correctional Facility pending review of charges by the Kent County Prosecutor.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Kent County Sheriff’s Office at 616-632-6357 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.

    This is not logical and is so obviously a setup! An autopsy on a child cannot be performed and then a few hours later complete results are in! The expedience of the results is laughable, to say the least! Not even the ultra rich or famous can buy results this fast. So I ask, what’s up? Who did this family make made in the Government to have their baby murdered and then have the parents charged? Sounds a bit like the family that was all murdered by the Government that was making the “Gray State” documentary. Yet was reported as a murder/suicide. Things do not add up here!

    If you read the article they were called to the residence August 2,2018 and the autopsy was performed August 3,2018. Now if they didn’t find any other cause besides the fact that her face and eyes were sunken in which is clearly a sign of starvation/dehydration…
