On April 11th, a father brought his 8-month-old son into Mary Bridge Children’s hospital. The child had stopped breathing. Doctors noticed signs of abuse and contacted the police. A day later, 8-month-old Jayceon Thomas was dead. Jayceon’s death is Tacoma’s second homicide this year.
Jayceon’s father was not with him at the time of the abuse and is not a suspect at this time. My thoughts go out to the family of Jayceon. As always, the comments section is reserved for those close to Jayceon to share memories of him with the rest of us who never had a chance to meet him.
All homicides are tragic but the death of someone so young is especially difficult. Here’s hoping that the Jayceon’s killer is brought to justice and that his family knows peace.
