SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (Aug. 5, 2011) -- Shelbyville police have a person of interest in the death of a 22-month-old boy.

Officers were called to the Martin Estates Apartments, on the city's north side, late Monday evening, where Jasper Simpson was found not breathing. He later died at Riley Hospital for Children.

According to a police report, the boy's mother told officers her son struck his head on a trunk and got sick. She said she put him on the couch only to find him later not breathing.

The Marion County coroner ruled that Simpson died of blunt-force injuries to his head.

Shelbyville police contacted 6News on Friday after neighbor Elaine Stickle said she witnessed abuse at the home, 6News' Stacia Matthews reported.

"All of a sudden, he (a man at the home) reached over and he slapped that baby with a thud, and that baby went flying into the patio door," Stickle said. "I said, 'Was that necessary?'"

Stickle told 6News she wishes she had called police.

"That was the only time I ever saw that child being hurt up there. It just didn't register," she said.

Police said they have a person of interest but are not releasing that person's name.

They are waiting for results of a pathology report, which could take weeks, before turning the case over to the prosecutor.

I am so sad, angry, & repulsed reading what happened to this child. People like this should NOT even be allowed to have children! People convicted of serious crimes against children should be STERILIZED! Yes, I said sterilized! They should never be allowed to have natural or adopted children & not be able to take in foster kids. And it's CPS's job to protect the kids that are being abused by their "caregivers". As for the rest of society, let's NOT turn a blind eye to the abuse. I implore everyone on this planet to report ANY suspected abuse. If your wrong about the abuse, it's better to be wrong than take a chance. If you're right about the abuse happening, you could be saving a child's life, or at the least, sparing them from any more suffering. Abuse in ANY form to ANY person is everyone's business!
