The 10-month old white baby boy was beaten by a black male. Reports say an enraged Eddie Widdick threw the tot down a flight of stairs.
At first, Widdick called the boy's mother to report the child's breathing wasn't "right," but adamantly stated he didn't do it.
Didn't do what?
Widdick dialed 911 and told authorities that the boy had fallen out of a crib and wasn't breathing.
He later added that he 'dropped' the boy down a flight of stairs and was a bit forceful when he put him in his crib.
News reports were more explicit. Widdick allegedly, "beat the little boy, causing deep brain injuries, a rib fracture, hemorrhages in both eyes and bruises on his head and torso."
Apparently Widdick and Silas' mother, Ashley Nelson, lived together with seven children. The surviving six were removed from the home by authorities, reports say. Five -- all under 13 -- had bruising.
In Africa they say it takes a village to raise a child. Apparently African males can't be trusted to raise little ones on their own.
