Police have confirmed that an eight-year-old child is a person of interest after a one-year-old boy was found dead at a home daycare centre in the US state of Michigan, WOOD TV8 reports.
Bryanna Reasonover said she found her one-year-old baby Korey Brown dead when she went to pick him up from a home day care after work on Friday morning.
On Thursday night, Reasonover had dropped off four children to be cared for while she worked an overnight shift. When she returned the next morning, she found Korey unresponsive in a playpen.
“I’m like, ‘What happened to my baby?'” she told WOOD TV8.
She said her young boy also had bite marks and bruises all over his body, and his head was swollen.
Muskegon Police Chief Jeffrey Lewis said he had “never dealt with a case like this one before”. He confirmed the primary witness was a five-year-old child, a fact which made the investigation into Korey’s death difficult.
Reports suggest that one-year-old Korey had been crying and the eight-year-old “dealt with the baby crying”.
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine how Korey died, with the eight-year-old person of interest taken for a mental health evaluation.
