Roseland Toddler Was Beaten And Suffocated

CHICAGO (STMW) — A 1-year-old boy found with bruises all over his body was beaten and suffocated in his Far South Side home, a Monday autopsy found.

Kingquintav Davis-Ringold was found unresponsive in his home at 30 W. 108th St. on Sunday, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said.

An autopsy on Monday found the baby died of multiple blunt force injuries and suffocation from child abuse, and his death was ruled a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.

Police were sent to the home at 1:05 p.m. Kingquintav’s mother found him unresponsive, police said. The boy had been beaten on the stomach, chest and back.

A source said seven other children were removed from the home, although an Illinois Dept. of Children and Family Services spokesman could not be reached to confirm that as of Monday afternoon.

Calumet Area detectives are investigating and it was unclear whether the mother was in custody.

    Such a sad story. My heart aches whenever I read a story like this. A poor defenseless baby being beaten or killed by an overwhelmed stressed out and more than likely way too young to be a parent in the first place.

    R.I.P. little man, and I’ll say a prayer for your soul tonight. Your pain is over now, I just wished you had a chance at a full and happy life.

    Overwhelmed? Stressed out? Too young? There be 7 other kids in the house man! More like Over fertile, Stretched out, Too sexually active with out the IQ to be on birth control. Probably 1 kid was too many for the parents of this pack.

    Sad for the kid, no child should ever have to endure something like this. Irresponsible for the parent(s)-(s) if the father still is around. Too many families like this have many kids with just as many different fathers-No quality of life for the kids

      I see your IQ is on the low end. The baby was his mother’s ONLY child! He was murdered by someone who was not related to him! The other children were from different parents yet you did not even think of that possibility! Hope you don’t have any children! Would not like to see that kind of ignorance and hate-mongering passed on to another generation!!

    OMG!! How could ANY parent allow this to happen to their child? Its such a horrible tragedy when children dont have anyone to protect them. The person(s) responsible should have the same thing done to them….jail is too good for them!!!! When is the judicial system going to start making examples out of people who commit crimes against poor, defenseless babies? May God Bless the other childen in being placed with good, loving people!!

      Why would someone ALLOW this??? How would you feel if someone kidnapped and murdered your child and everyone pointed a finger at you and said, “How could YOU have let this happen to your child!!??”

    You ignorant people! The parent did not do this! It was a man unrelated to the child. This was the mother’s ONLY child! The others in the home were relatives. The family is totally devastated over this horrible loss! Get your facts straight before sending out more poison!
