In Riviera Beach, Florida, Tillman C. Moore, 24, is charge with abusing and killing his three-month-old son, Jayden Moore. The autopsy showed that the baby’s death was caused by blunt-force trauma to the head.
Last September, Moore called 911 to report that the baby had stopped breathing. He told police it was caused by heatstroke. After doing CPR on the baby, dectectives noticed suspicious marks on the child’s body.
At the hospital, a CT scan showed five head injuries and older broken ribs. Jayden died soon after.
When confronted, Moore started telling a series of lies. First, he said that the boy had fallen off the bed earlier that day. Then the story changed again. Moore told police that the baby had fallen another time from his stroller.
The baby’s mother, LaWanda Addison, is cooperating with police since she had suspicions that Moore was abusing the baby. Because of this, Moore’s sister has left threatening voice mail messages on her cell phone. So now a judge has ruled that his family was not allowed to contact Addison.
