The first thing I am going to say is that a boyfriend or girlfriend is NOT an appropriate baby sitter, ever. No discussion about it.
Less then two weeks before this happened Caydens mother fought and gained custody of her child from his grandparents who lived in Kentucky. When she left court she told them “they would never see Cayden again “That was the grim truth.
23-year-old James Rivera Sims of Georgia was watching little Cayden, while his mother was at work. He is not the child’s father but the mother’s boyfriend whom she had just moved in with.
At some point the little boy was unresponsive. James told police the little boy had wet himself. He claimed that he grabbed the little boys arm and brought him to the bathroom where the boy collapsed. Bullshit.
The little boy suffered a brain hemorrhage and had difficulty breathing. The police department noted that the statement made by James was inconsistent with the injuries to the child and James was arrested for first degree cruelty to children which carries a mandatory prison term of no less then 5 years.
Little Cayden has since passed away as a result of his injuries and James has been charged with murder.
During the autopsy it was determined that James had beaten the little guy to death. Cayden was hit multiple times in the head and was hit or kicked in the testicles.
The police department commented that “These were not blows that he would survive for a period of time”
I wish Georgia still had “Old Sparky “to fry this weasel with. Someone needs to slap Caydens mother as well. What the fuck was she thinking? She had custody of little Cayden a mere 2 weeks prior to his death. Before that Cayden lived with his grandparents. Why take the little guy if you are not prepared to care for him?
The only good thing about this whole situation is that James does not look like a very smart man. He looks like a tool with anger issues and insecurities. This will not make prison life very easy for him. The mother has not received any charges since poor judgment and stupidity is not a crime. During court Cayden was asked if he wanted to live with his mother. He ran to his grandmother and said that he didn’t.
His grandmother would later say that Cayden was and is now a true angel. So sad and preventable.
