His last night as a prisoner in North Florida, Kelvin Bolton couldn’t sleep. Fifty-five years old, with a wispy goatee the same color as the gray flecks in his hair, he was about to get out after serving a 2 1/2-year sentence for theft and battery. The last time he’d seen his brothers and sisters at a big family gathering, he’d marched onto the dance floor ostentatiously, turned away and wrapped his arms around himself to caress his own back. As he swayed goofily to the music, everybody laughed. Now Bolton was so close to being free and seeing his family again. The next morning, a bright Wednesday in April, he was already dressed in his street clothes and cleared to go when the woman processing his paperwork stopped him. “The lady said, ‘Hold on, you can’t go anywhere,’” Bolton remembered in a recent phone call. Confused, he asked her...
    By Amir Vera and Melissa Alonso | CNN A Massachusetts woman has been arrested in connection with the 1985 death of a newborn baby in Frenchville, Maine. A dog found the abandoned newborn in a gravel pit on December 7, 1985, and carried her less than 700 feet to its owner’s home, according to a news release from Maine State Police (MSP). Detectives were later able to track the dog’s path to the location where their investigation showed the baby was born and left abandoned in below-zero temperatures, according to the release. The case went cold for nearly 40 years. But on Monday, police arrested 58-year-old Lee Ann Daigle, formerly Lee Ann Guerette, of Lowell, Massachusetts, at her home and charged her with murder. Authorities were able to identify her due to advancements in technology, such as DNA and genetic genealogy, the release said. “This case was the culmination of decades worth of investigative work from dozens of now retired and current detectives who never gave up finding answers and justice for Baby Jane Doe,” the MSP release said. Daigle...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Damari Perry was just 6 years old, and prosecutors said he was punished – forced to take an ice-cold shower by his mother – before his death last week. As CBS 2’s Jermont Terry reported, it turns out that the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services had been in touch with Damari’s family before. READ MORE: Deputies Shoot And Kill Suspect While Responding To Domestic Violence Call In Port BarringtonDamari’s mother, Jannie Perry 38; his brother, Jeremiah Perry, 20; and a juvenile sibling are all facing charges in his death. Damari’s mother and brother have arrested previously, but this, of course, is far more serious. As police investigated Monday night, those at DCFS were reviewing the agency’s involvement in the North Chicago boy’s short life too. DCFS records show Damari was born into the Illinois foster care system. This is because his mother, Jannie Perry, had lost custody of her five other children in 2014 following a DCFS domestic violence investigation. Damari was taken into the state’s care at birth in 2015. But two years later...
    (CNN)Three decades after infant remains were found in a North Carolina beach town, police say they have arrested and charged a couple based on new DNA evidence.Scott Gordon Poole, 54, and his wife Robin Lynn Byrum, 51, were arrested last week and charged with concealing the birth of a child, a Class I felony, the Nags Head Police Department said in a news release. The case dates back to April 4, 1991, when police officers found the infant remains in the trash at a location in Nags Head. At the time, authorities were not able to identify the baby's gender because decomposition had already begun, police said. Investigators connected the couple to the infant after they sent one of its rib bones to a Texas lab for forensic analysis in 2019 and human DNA was recovered. That evidence was then used to create genealogical profile, leading investigators to Poole and Byrum."The tragedy of this child's death and the manner in which his body was disposed of is compounded by the fact that, until now, no one has been found responsible...
    Two basketball coaches at a magnet charter school in Georgia now face murder charges in connection with the death of 16-year-old Imani Bell, who collapsed and died hours after doing drills for the girls’ varsity team in scorching heat. A junior at the Elite Scholars Academy, Bell collapsed during a conditioning drill that involved running up football stadium steps in the blistering sun. Bell’s head basketball coach, Larosa Walker-Asekere, and assistant coach, Dwight Palmer, were indicted by an Atlanta-area grand jury just weeks before the two-year anniversary of the fateful outdoor basketball practice on Aug. 13, 2019. That day, temperatures had climbed into the high 90s, with the heat index reaching as high as 106 degrees, causing Bell to pass out during the drill, according to a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family’s lawyers in February against school administrators. The indictment for Bell’s coaches charges them with second-degree murder, second-degree child cruelty, involuntary manslaughter, and reckless conduct for conducting the outdoor training in “dangerous heat.” “The tragedy that happened with Imani shouldn’t have happened,” Bell’s dad, Eric...
