CLEVELAND (AP) — An autopsy shows a 3-year-old Cleveland boy allegedly killed by his mother died of blows to the head, body and limbs.
The autopsy was done last week and the cause of death was released Tuesday by the Cuyahoga County medical examiner. Prosecutors disclosed earlier that Emilliano Terry had suffered a skull fracture.
His mother had claimed the child went missing during an outing to a park. Twenty-year-old Camilia Terry was subsequently charged with aggravated murder. She’s been held with a $2 million bond.
The medical examiner says the boy died around Thanksgiving Eve.
His mother says he disappeared while on an outing to a park Nov. 25. One day later, the mother’s version of what happened changed and his body was found in the trash.
