According to a police press release, the boy’s mother had left him with Alegray when she went to work. Early Friday, Alegray texted the woman, telling her the boy was not responding to his attempts to wake him.
According to police - the man did not call 911 - he merely texted the child’s mother to inform her of an "issue" with her toddler son. The woman immediately contacted 911 and she rushed home - but it was too late. The boy was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
News reports claim that police are saying the boy had visible injuries all over his body which suggest that they was a history of physical abuse and the autopsy showed he died of blunt force trauma.
Detectives wrote in the police report that they questioned Alegray and he told them he had become aggravated with the boy for urinating on the couch and struck him numerous times, knocking him out.
Jones was subsequently arrested.
