Wilson, 28, of Cuyahoga Falls, is scheduled for a pretrial hearing on murder and other charges August Police say he confessed to shaking and squeezing the infant after arguing with his wife, Crystal Wilson.
He had no reason to die. He died because he cried. An innocent infant's violent death has destroyed a family. One day this was a happy, perfect family, and the next day it's been devastated. The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome estimates that as many as 1, babies annually are injured or killed by shaking. According to the center, 70 percent to 79 percent of people convicted of killing or hurting babies are men.

When Crystal and Tabatha got home from the meeting March 12, Crystal immediately noticed that Camryn didn't look right in his baby swing. He was gasping for air but couldn't be wakened.
After briefly speaking with an on-call doctor at Akron Children's Hospital, she scooped him up and rushed him there. Camryn was critically injured, with bleeding inside his head and in the backs of his eyes, and several broken ribs -- some of which, according to the autopsy, turned out to be older injuries. Medical personnel at the hospital determined that the combination of injuries could only mean abuse. When rib fractures are seen in a week-old infant, "it's beating up," said Dr. Once you are on the Fold 3 page, on the far right click Browse and then choose Vital Records, then Cuyahoga County Birth Returns, then choose a year, and then the letter of the last name you are interested in.
