More information about injuries of Richland toddler Ryder Morrison
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- A new report released to the Benton County Coroner has more information on the death of Richland toddler Ryder Morrison.
The report shows the one year old's injuries on his body happened over a period of time. Last week, Benton County Coroner John Hansens said Ryder Morrison died on June 22nd from "abusive head trauma." His death was ruled a homicide.Last week we also learned there were other injuries though out the body, but we didn't know when they happened or where.
Pediatric experts have been working for months trying to determine what caused the other injuries on his body, and how long they've been there.
Hansens says today's report reveals the injuries happened two to four weeks prior to the boy's death.
"The report indicates that these are not injuries consistent with minor falls or normal child play," says Hansens.
Hansens says because this is an active investigation, he is not allowed to release where the injuries were on the body or if they were bruising or broken bones. He says that information will be reviewed by Richland Detectives and the County Prosecutor.
Police say there are no suspects at this time.
In a statement, the toddler's family said a nanny was watching Ryder at the time of his death on June 22nd.
