Pasadena police department, in conjunction with prosecutors and doctors worked tirelessly to find the actual cause of death of the boy after the mother and live in boyfriend blamed it on a 5 year old sibling that allegedly was playing rough
Today Chad Wisnieski along with the boy's mother Christina Chadwick were arrested in League city, with the help of that cities SWAT team, this after the medical examiner determined the 2 year old died of multiple blunt force trauma, ruling his death a homicide.
The child abuse was discovered back in November 2012, when a Pasadena police officer arrived at the Empire Village apartment complex, after receiving a 911 call.
Court documents state the child was not breathing and was quickly taken to Bayshore Hospital where doctors noticed multiple injuries, both healing and fresh… these included large bruises and lacerations under the eyes, forehead, cheeks, front torso, arms, buttocks and back.
