Samuel CabreraPhiladelphia, PA – Police have accused 27-year-old Samuel Cabrera of beating his infant son to the point that all of the baby’s abdominal organs had been crushed.

Samuel Cabrera Jr. was rushed to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in critical condition, suffering from two broken collar bones, a ruptured spleen, a ruptured liver and crushed organs. The boy would end up dying from his injuries to days later.

Police say when they interviewed the couple about the boy’s injuries, they gave conflicting accounts of what happened.  The mother told detectives they found their baby pale and unconscious and the bruising was caused by her and Cabrera performing CPR on the infant.

Cabrera told police a different story. He said he was trying to knock the family dog off the bed and accidentally hit the baby. Eventually Cabrera would admit to killing his son and was subsequently arrested and charged with murder.

Although the mother has not been charged,  her three children from a previous relationship and Cabrera’s 15-month-old daughter are now living with relatives. …

Officers described a disgusting living situation when they entered the mobile home where the boy lived.

“Upon entering the residence, I detected an overpowering odor of animal urine and feces,” Erie Police Corporal Aaron Haddox said. “My nose began running, my throat became irritated, and my eyes were burning.…
