IONIA, Mich. —

The Ionia County Prosecutor’s Office is waiting for an autopsy report
in the death of a 3-month-old Portland boy, who allegedly died from
“non-natural injuries” in March.
The child, who was born in December 2011, died from what Ionia
County Probate Court documents describe as “life-threatening injuries,
including a fractured rib, retinal hemorrhaging and sub-dermal
hematomas. There were also bleeds to the liver, stomach and left lung.”
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine if the baby’s death should be ruled a homicide.
The Department of Human Services filed a petition to the probate
court on March 26, requesting that the deceased child’s twin brother be
removed from the care of the parents. The request was granted.
According to court documents, the twin sustained a bucket handle fracture on the left lower leg.
“It’s simply an investigation,” said Ionia County Prosecutor Ron
Schafer. “Preliminary reports are that the death is not a natural death,
and consequently, all deaths not natural in nature are treated as a
homicide until proven otherwise. In this case, we know it will take
several weeks before the autopsy results. The Portland Police Department
has done an extensive investigation and will be delivering that to our
office as soon as it is completed.”
Court documents say the infant was taken to Sparrow Ionia Hospital
with “life-threatening injuries” on March 24. The attending physician
stated that the injuries were inconsistent with the father’s
explanation, and the injuries appeared to be “non-accidental and
consistent with child abuse and neglect.” The infant died on March 25.
The document also reports that some of the injuries happened several weeks before the infant was taken to the hospital.
No charges have been filed pending the investigation and autopsy report.
