The Willard Police Department and the Greene County Prosecutors office are expected to be releasing more details tomorrow about the suspicious death of nine month-old Lucas Payton Theede-Bennett.
It's been about seven weeks since first responders were called to the home of the infants babysitter in northern Greene County because the little boy had stopped breathing.
Little Lucas died about an hour later at a Springfield hospital from what insiders tell me are injuries consistent with a crushed skull.
The State Technical Assistance Team, part of the Department of Social Services that investigates suspicious child fatalities, was called in had has been helping with the investigation along with, medical examiners and prosecutors.
Lucas is survived by his mother Amanda Theede, and father Sean Bennett, grandparents and a host of other family and friends.
