Dad with history of DV assaults 3-year-old son during weekend custody/visitation (Jackson County, Mississippi)

The names sounded vaguely familiar so I looked them up to see if we had posted on them before. Sure enough, dad NATHAN BLAKE MCCRORY has a history of domestic violence and had weekend custody/visitation. Of course, the media "forgot" to tell you about it this time....

PASCAGOULA, Miss. —A detective testified 3-year-old Zander Saucier had at least 30 wounds to his body, including suspected cigarette and lighter burns and bleeding on the brain, when he was brought to Singing River Hospital last month.

The Sun Herald reported that the boy's father, Nathan Blake McCrory, 24, is accused of causing the injuries to his son. McCrory was in Jackson County Court on Monday for a preliminary hearing on felony charges of child abuse and one count of marijuana cultivation.

Judge T. Larry Wilson determined there was enough evidence in the case to be bound over to a grand jury for indictment.

Detective Eddie Clark testified at the hearing and talked about some of the other injuries Zander suffered.

McCrory claims the boy suffered the injuries by falling down the stairs.
