This afternoon the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office confirms the positive identification of EmillianoTerry,age 3, black male,of Cleveland.
Identification wasmade today throug hDNA testing conducted by the Medical Examiner’s Regional Forensic Science Laboratory.
Still no positive information has been released about how young Terry died; the Medical Examiner is still investigating the matter.
Camilia Terry did not plea during her arraignment. Prosecutors asked for a high bond because her toddler Emilliano suffered from blunt force trauma to the head, skull and rib fractures and a lacerated liver. They claim Camilia is a flight risk.
Shawn Dotson never got to know his son. He said the boy's mother forced him out of the picture. "I guess she felt as if she couldn't be involved with me, I couldn't be involved with him," he said. It’s sad because Dotson thought the child was living with his mother out of state until he learned that the boy was missing.
“There's a deep part of me who feels that it is partially my fault. So, I mean, it eats me up you know," he said. "I mean, every kid needs a father, you know. If he had his father in his life or around him, I'm like 99.9 percent sure that wouldn't have happened. He'd be secure. He'd be safe with me.”
Dotson, 19, was a freshman in high school when he met Camilia Terry, who's been charged with murder in connection to her son's death.
Neither Dotson or his family members ever saw anything in Camilia that made them think she would be capable of hurting the boy.
