He forces his 6-year-old son to play sports “because he’s too fat”: the little boy dies of exhaustion, his dad accused of murder

A case currently being judged.

How can you do this to a child? What’s more to his own son?

A terrible case is being tried in Superior Court in Ocean City, Maryland, United States. A man is being prosecuted for endangering and murdering his son.

The facts date back to 2021. Corey, aged 6 at the time, had bruises on his body. His mother then decided to take him to the doctor on April 1st. In front of the doctor, he says that his dad – separated from his mom – forces him to play sports “because he’s too big”.

The next day, his dad took him to the hospital. “because he was dozing and vomiting”. Admitted to the emergency room, he died there a few hours later.

Gym

However, this Tuesday, a video of incredible violence was presented to the court. In the video, we see Corey and his dad in a gym on March 20, 2021, around ten days before his death. The father forces his son to run on a treadmill at a speed that is obviously too high for the little one. It doesn’t matter if Corey falls off the mat and hurts himself several times: his father systematically puts him back on the machine, sometimes very brutally.

Images that shock America and are widely shared throughout the Anglo-Saxon world, even to us.

According to an initial autopsy the day after his death, Corey died “blunt injuries, as well as heart and liver contusions, acute inflammation and sepsis”, writes The Sun. Six months later, a second autopsy determined that Corey was the victim of chronic violence and that it was indeed a homicide.
