Sacramento police have arrested a 20-year-old man on suspicion of homicide in the death of his baby son nearly a year ago.

Everett Bobbylee Quinn was booked into Sacramento County jail Wednesday night on suspicion of homicide and assault, police said. Police said they suspect that Quinn caused the injuries that resulted in his son's death.

Placer County coroner's officials identified the baby as Heratio Wysinger, who was 4 months old when he died July 27, 2009, in a Roseville hospital.

The lengthy period between his death and Quinn's arrest was due to the need for experts to look into the boy's death, said Sgt. Norm Leong, Sacramento Police Department spokesman.

Placer County sheriff's spokesman Dena Erwin said the cause of death included "blunt force impact and rotational injuries."

Erwin said the infant's brain was sent for extensive neuropathological study, and the Coroner's Office received the report two months ago.

The baby also suffered from chronic cystic encephalopathy, a disease of the brain.

Leong said police do not know exactly why or how Quinn might have harmed his child.

On May 19, 2009, officers responded to the 5300 block of Mack Road regarding a baby who was vomiting blood.

The initial investigation revealed that Quinn was caring for his son while the baby's mother was in the shower.
