17-Year-Old Nebraska Father Charged as an Adult in the Death of His 6-Month-Old Daughter

Omaha resident Alejandro Flores was charged with intentional child abuse after his six-month-old daughter suffered a head injury that led to her death. 

17-year-old Alejandro Flores was charged as an adult relating to the death of his six-month-old daughter, Ruby Flores-Martinez. The baby suffered serious head trauma on June 3, 2021, and passed away two days later. 

After his first court appearance on Wednesday, Flores is facing charges of intentional child abuse and is being held on $225,000 bail.

ALONE WITH HIS DAUGHTER

Authorities reported to Flores' home after receiving a call that there was an unresponsive infant who was not breathing. Police found the father and six-month-old on the scene. Flores travelled with the baby in the ambulance as the EMS performed CPR. 

Flores and the 18-year-old mother of the infant spoke to authorities at the hospital, both saying they didn't know why the baby was unresponsive. Medical personnel told the police that the injuries were most likely caused by abuse. 

INCRIMINATING STATEMENTS

Law enforcement brought the 17-year-old father into the Omaha Police Headquarters for an interview where he “made incriminating statements and confessed to causing the injuries.”

During the court proceedings last week, Chief Deputy Douglas County Attorney Brenda Beadle described the baby's injuries and said they could not be blamed on accidental abuse or death. 

 

ANOTHER MURDER

A community in Alabama is also facing the shock of a father of a one-month-old baby being charged with capital murder in connection to the death of his child. 

32-year-old Caleb Whisnand stood in front of the press cameras, pleading for individuals with information to come forward, and a few hours later, his child's corpse was found and he was arrested. 

AFTER THE CONFERENCE

Whisnand reported his son missing on a Monday night but said that the one-month-old was last seen on Saturday. The father and the mother of the little boy also gave conflicting stories. 

After the press conference, authorities obtained information that aided them in locating the body and filing charges against Whisnand. 

Baltimore's Darius Williams also faces first-degree murder and second-degree child abuse charges after his two-month-old daughter was found dead

Police reported to the scene after receiving a call that there was an unresponsive infant. Upon arrival, the baby was pronounced dead, with the autopsy showing it was a homicide, as the death was caused by trauma to the head.
