Kansas City Baby is Shaken and Dies
On Thursday of last week, one of those three babies was a Kansas City child. Rey A. Cruz Jr. was found bearly holding onto life, his relatives had called in after the boy had been brutally shaken and injured by his nineteen-year old father, Rey A. Cruz, Sr.
The little boy had suffered from considerable injuries ranging from brain damage to bruises on his genitalia. The little boy clung to life for another day. Then slowly, he lost his battle to stay alive. On Friday, the little boy went brain dead, and over the course of the weekend, it is reported that the little boy passed away.
At first, the father denied any involvement, but now he has come clean.
