The investigation into the death of a Gresham infant from last week continues. The York County Sheriff stated that the investigation began when doctors notified his office that an infant may have died from assault injuries.
The four-month-old girl was seen at the Children’s Hospital in Omaha, and she presented with a severe head injury, blood on the brain, and a skull fracture. A second doctor who works in the Children’s trauma unit said that there were additional signs of injury that may have happened up to two weeks prior, claims a New York Brain Injury Lawyer.
The four-month-olds two-year-old older sister was removed from the home by Health and Human services soon after the four-month-old was admitted to the Omaha hospital. As of Monday, there were no charges filed for any criminal involvement surrounding the death of the four-month-old baby.
