New Year's Baby's Death Breaks Family
Is it opinion or fact to say that this just sucks? Camryn Jakeb Wilson (Baby Camryn), born on New Year's Day, died three months later, and apparently not due to natural causes, but due to physical trauma.
Camryn's father, Craig R. Wilson, 28, of Cuyahoga Falls, is scheduled for a pretrial hearing on murder and other charges August 20. Police say he confessed to shaking and squeezing the infant after arguing with his wife, Crystal Wilson.
But he has pleaded not guilty to all the charges and faces trial in September.
"There are no excuses for this to happen to any baby," Crystal Wilson, 26, told CNN. "This is murder. He had no reason to die. He died because he cried."
An innocent infant's violent death has destroyed a family.
The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome estimates as many as 1,400 babies annually are injured or killed by shaking.
When rib fractures are seen in a 10-week-old infant, "it's beating up," said Dr. Nicolas Krawiecki, a pediatric neurologist and faculty member at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. He is not involved in the Wilson case.
