A 28-year-old man is sitting in jail after a police investigation revealed that he killed his 5-day-old son.
Police say Christopher Joseph Riddle was at the home while his son was unresponsive before they received the 911 call around 3 a.m. on November 23.
When police arrived at the home in Cameron, North Carolina, they found the child’s mother and uncle trying to bring the baby back to life.
It was too late when emergency personnel tried to rush the baby to the hospital.
The medical examiner who conducted the autopsy found signs of blunt force trauma to the baby’s head.
Police were able to track Riddle down in Blenheim, South Carolina. He was arrested for first-degree murder.
