Police have arrested an adult male in connection with the boy’s death.

The suspect has been identified in reports as Darriynn Brown, 18, and has been charged with kidnapping and theft, but police said more charges are likely “pending results from a forensic analysis.”

“Through the hard work of the men and women of the Dallas Police Department, this criminal was brought to justice, and it would not have been possible without the Dallas FBI Evidence Response Team and the public’s assistance,” police said in a statement.

Officers found the boy when they responded to a 911 call at about 7am Saturday, according to police spokesman Albert Martinez.

The boy had multiple wounds from “an edged weapon,” according to the Dallas Morning News.

“We are shocked, we are very angry about what has happened to this small child,” Martinez said, describing the boy’s death as “violent”.

Investigators believe the boy lived locally and are knocking on doors to locate security footage or other information to aid in the investigation.

Antwainese Square, 39, told the Morning News she was jogging at about 6:30am when she saw what she thought was a dog lying in the road but when she got closer she saw the boy’s arms and legs.

“That’s when I noticed the baby had ants at the bottom of his feet so I knew he was deceased then,” Square said. “It was heart-wrenching because this baby could have been no more than 5.”

Having called 911 she told the operator she could see blood on the boy’s face and the upper half of his body.

She added he wasn’t wearing shoes or a shirt.

“As a mother, this just — it breaks my heart,” she said. “It breaks my heart. And now I’m afraid. Now I’m paranoid. Because I don’t know what happened, I don’t know what’s going on.”

“I mean just knowing that someone out there is capable of killing a child, that alone is just unsettling,” she said. “So I am praying that that baby gets justice.”

”It’s a lot to take in,” said Lisa Gilbert, 18, who lives just down the road. “It’s so shocking to me that it’s a 4-year-old, someone’s baby. That could’ve been my little cousin or brother or something. It’s just the point that he’s gone now. It’s just terrifying.”

”I just hope that they find whoever did this and put them behind bars because it’s not right to kill a little baby,” she said.

  1. They wanted you for not seeing their father one last time?
    I imagine that everyone lives his pain, his pain in his own way. Sometimes we lack courage. I do not know how to explain it, but in any case I closed the coffin by myself. Neither Laura nor David wanted to go down the Champs-Elysees with us. They were offered to come with us on the plane that the record company – it was the last gift – had made available for us to go to St. Barts. They did not want to. This refusal was as violent for me as it was for my daughters. I respected their choice, that I did not have to judge. But again, I missed them a lot.
