(April 17, 2007) -- A toddler's death has led LBPD to arrest a 24 year-old man it says is the boyfriend of the child's mother.
LBPD says in a release that on April 16 at roughly 7:55 a.m., LBFD paramedics responded to an apartment complex in the 1400 block of Magnolia Ave., found a toddler boy unconscious, breathing but unresponsive...and transported the child to a hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
LBPD says its preliminary investigation indicates the toddler allegedly sustained blunt force trauma injuries to his body. Officers arrested Genardo Salas Blanco, Jr. and charged him with murder.
