BALTIMORE (WUSA9) - A father is wanted for murdering his five-month-old son. Now Baltimore Police are asking for the public’s help to get him in custody.
On June 9 at approximately 4 a.m., medics responded to a home in the 1600 block of North Smallwood Street for a report of an unconscious baby.
Perry Nelson-Johnson told police his son, Emmanuel, had rolled off the bed and banged his head. He said the baby appeared to be fine until he and the child’s mother called for a medic.
Emmanuel was rushed to Baltimore’s Shock Trauma where he was pronounced dead.
Police said Nelson-Johnson’s story didn’t check out.
The baby was born Dec. 26, 2016 and had old and new injuries all over his boy, police said. An autopsy revealed Emmanuel had severe head trauma. His injuries weren’t consistent with a fall and the evidence police observed at the home.
A medical examiner ruled Emmanuel’s death a homicide by multiple blunt force traumas to his head.
Nelson-Johnson is now wanted by police.
