  1. How could anyone take the life of an innocent baby? My thoughts and prays are with the family for comfort and strength. God Bless you.

  2. How can any human do such a cruel act? A 4 yr old is like an angel, how can anybody have the heart to kill 💔 an innocent, little, helpless boy? Why? I will never understand the mind behind this act!

    1. Especially their own child. Their own flesh and blood. I’m a grown man. I’m 43 and I am almost in tears with this news. This kind of stuff makes me emotional. I have 2 children of my own, and if anyone tried to hurt them, the are going to wish they were never born!
