Baby Boy killed... My heart is just breaking.

Posted by   + Show Post

Galveston, Texas - At about 9:00 AM local time Tuesday morning, Jesse Zaro and his wife were driving in Galveston near Seawall Boulevard and Ferry Road to go birdwatching. They stopped when they saw something that looked like a doll on the side of the road. Curious, Mr. Zaro got out of the car to see what the object was, and then “became ill, cried, and nearly collapsed.”




What Zaro found was a dead baby boy, probably between three and six months of age, with blond hair. He was wearing only a diaper, and had obvious head trauma. A carseat lay about twenty feet away. When he had calmed himself, Zaro went back to the car and told his wife what he’d found. He tried to flag down a truck, but his wife found her cell phone instead, so the couple dialed 911.


Police aren’t yet sure how the baby’s body or child seat got to where they were found, although they think the baby may have been tossed from a moving vehicle. The Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office has the baby’s body for autopsy and identification. Police say they will consult with the University of Texas for possible footprint identification of the infant.


Sounds like another Baby Grace/Riley Ann Sawyers case has come to Galveston. I’ll update as information comes in. Thanks for the tip to our commenter eyezblue!


 UPDATE -  The baby boy’s mother has identified him as hers.  She went to Galveston from her Alvin home Tuesday evening and underwent police questioning.  The mother called police after becoming worried that her baby’s father had not returned home with the infant after leaving the home with the baby about 5:00 AM on Tuesday.    The four-month-old infant’s corpse was found just four hours later, and Travis “TJ” Mullis,21, hasn’t been seen since.    Police are not confirming the identity of the child pending a medical examiner’s report.


Mullis is considered a “person of interest” as he was the last person seen with both the baby and the carseat.  Mullis was last seen driving a silver, four-door, 2002 Hyundai Accent with duct tape on the rear passenger side door handle and Texas license plate 067-RJP, and no baby carseat in it anymore.

Yes he did and he is being charged with the murder of his child, and the mother is being charged with endangerment to a chilid, b/c she let the father take him the day he died.

This is really horrible. It's premeditated, which makes it even sicker. It breaks my heart when I read about babies getting shaken, etc., but when they are taken out on the side of the road and smashed, or dropped off a bridge, it makes me soooo furious.

ESPECIALLY WHEN THE MAN IS DOING IT BECAUSE HE ARGUED WITH HIS SPOUSE!

What
the
F***!!?!??!

Quoting mom_to_3_boys:

HOW CAN YOU DO THIS TO AN INNOCENT BABY!?  I AM SADDENED AND ANGRY ALL AT THE SAME TIME....THIS MAN SHOULD BE THROWN FROM A CAR. THAT POOR POOR BABY, MAY HE REST IN PEACE....
This man doesn't deserve to live our country should enact a mandatory death penalty for anyone who murders a child, and they should be given no more than 30days to appeal a guilty verdict. After 30days they should be executed.

No, it was determined for sure he did because the baby wouldn't stop crying. He did argue with his spouse the night before but they weren't arguing when he left that morning with Aiden. What is really sad is supposedly he was really loving otherwise, got up with him at night too. He just snapped.
