BEDFORD, Texas - A Bedford baby that died earlier this year had a traumatic brain injury and almost all of his ribs were broken, according to documents.
Police said 3-month-old Romeo Wright was found unresponsive at his home in the 2400 block of Harwood Road in January. He was taken to the hospital and died a few days later.
A Child Protective Service affidavit released on Wednesday states at the time of his death Wright had a fractured skull, bruises on his body and almost all of his ribs were broken and in various stages of healing.
He had a traumatic brain injury and all the signs of shaken baby syndrome, according to the affidavit.
The Tarrant County medical examiner ruled his death a homicide.
Lt. Kirk Roberts said the baby's parents are suspects in the case, but there have been no arrests yet because they are not cooperating with the investigation.
Their only explanation for his injuries was that his 1-year-old brother had accidentally dropped a baby bottle on him, according to the affidavit.
CPS has removed Wright’s sibling from the home.
