Dad in custody for death of 10-month-old son (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

This is nuts! We see mention of UNNAMED DAD, another kid in the home who apparently witnessed Daddy hitting the baby. We have Daddy's relatives who are in the usual state of denial. But where is Mom? Somebody gave birth to this child 10 months ago, and it certainly wasn't Daddy. Why is the mother being erased from the story AGAIN? Did this jerk have custody or visitation or something? If so, WHY?

MILWAUKEE-Police are investigating the death of a 10 month old baby boy.

Police say the baby's father brought him to St. Luke's hospital Saturday night.

Police officials aren't providing many details but sources tell TODAY's TMJ4's Lauren Leamanczyk that this is being investigated as a homicide.

The died of blunt force trauma and according to her sources, the father initially told officers he was playing with baby at his house when he accidentally dropped him.

He told investigators the boy hit his head on a piece of furniture.

But another child said he saw the father hitting the baby.

The father has no prior criminal record.

He has not been charged with a crime in this case, though he was taken into custody.

Family members are mourning the baby while waiting for the results of the autopsy.

That father's relatives say they hope the allegations aren't true.

Police say it is still very early in the investigation.
