Investigation ongoing after 4-year-old boy found unconscious in home of dad, girlfriend; is this a custodial dad? (Port Huron, Michigan)

Yet another case that's interesting for what is NOT said.

Why was this boy in this home to begin with? Did UNNAMED DAD have full custody? Joint custody? Visitation? What?

And if Dad can't or won't take care of him, why is he being dumped on the unnamed babysitter/girlfriend? Is this a case of dodging child support? Punishing the mom? What?

These other children that were taken by CPS--are they the father's also? The "babysitter's"? Or do they belong to both?

What happened to the mother of this little boy?

Why does the media not bother to explain these things?

Police say an investigation is ongoing after a 4-year-old boy was found unconscious Friday at a home in the 800 block of 13th Street in Port Huron.

Port Huron police Det./Sgt. Brian Georgia said police are investigating what happened to the boy.

The boy’s 23-year-old father and a 22-year-old woman who had been watching him have been questioned. They are not in custody, Georgia said.

Initial reports that the boy’s father was 41-years-old were incorrect.

The father, woman and boy are Port Huron residents.

Georgia said the 22-year-old woman watching the boy called police about 2:35 p.m. Friday.

When authorities arrived to the home, the boy was unconscious in the bathtub, Georgia said.

Further examination showed the boy also had some internal and external injuries.

The boy was taken to McLaren Port Huron hospital, and then airlifted to William Beaumont Hospital.

Georgia said the boy is listed in critical, but stable condition.

Two other children in the home were removed by Child Protective Services.

Further details on the investigation have not been released.
