An American Teen kills newborn son to get out of paying child support.
Ekohotblog Reports that a Texan teenager has been put behind bars after police say he killed his own newborn son to get out of paying for child support.
Caleb Blake Brown, 17-years-old has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of his son, Emerson Ziesmer, News Channel 8 reports.
The incident occurred in Carrolton, Texas on August 9, when Brown was allegedly left alone briefly with the infant.
Afterwards, Brown and the baby’s mother, Rachel Ziesmer, took Emerson to the emergency room after police said that Rachel noticed the infant was “pale and had significant bruising around his abdomen.”
Emerson was subsequently transferred to Children’s Medical Center of Dallas but tragically passed away from his injuries.
An autopsy indicated that Emerson had a lacerated liver, several misplaced ribs and an abrasion on the back of his head.
He was just 24 days old when he died.
Police said, “While he was briefly alone with the infant on the afternoon of Aug. 9, Brown alleged in a probable cause affidavit for his arrest warrant that he squeezed him and repeatedly hurled him into the air, eventually hitting the ceiling fan.”
According to Brown’s probable cause affidavit, investigators learned from cell phones and social media records that Brown was angry with the baby’s mother “for not aborting [the baby] or putting him up for adoption.”
Brown was also “concerned about having to pay child support,” the affidavit read.
Officer also obtained video footage that allegedly showed Brown “repeatedly” raising his middle finger toward the baby and would refer to him as “ugly,” and a “little dumb baby.”
He later reportedly admitted that after the baby hit his head on the ceiling fan, he squeezed the infant again and believes the final squeeze is what killed him.
Brown remains behind bars on a $2 million bond.
