Nationwide Warrant Issued For Infant Death Suspect
A Nationwide arrest warrant has been issued for a 29-year-old Illinois man suspected of killing a 14-month-old baby boy and severely injuring his twin brother. Fond du Lac Police Wednesday issued the warrant for Daniel Griffin for one count of 1st degree reckless homicide and two counts of child abuse causing great bodily harm. It’s in connection with the child’s death on July 7th while Griffin and his girlfriend 24-year-old Airrealle Smart were visiting friends at the Maplewood Commons Apartments. Assistant Police Chief Steve Klein says investigators determined Griffin was allegedly responsible for the baby’s death and injuries to his twin brother. At one point Griffin may have stood on the victim. He says both twins suffered significant internal injuries. Police are using Facebook photos of Griffin in trying to locate him. Griffin is believed to be in the Chicago and Calumet City, Illinois area. Meanwhile Smart was charged Wednesday in Fond du Lac County Court with neglecting a child causing death and great bodily harm and two counts of child abuse failing to prevent that harm. Bond was set at $150,000 cash. To see the press release click here.
