LPD released the arrest warrant and investigation report in the death of a 1-year-old child.
A Lubbock mother and her boyfriend were arrested after the death of Mason Rodriguez.
EMS paramedics and LPD officers responded to a report on June 20 about a child not breathing in the 1800 block of East 25th Street.
The mother, Madison Rodriguez, 18, told investigators she had been asleep with the young child and her boyfriend, Charles Dillon Flournoy, 21.
According to the arrest warrant, Rodriguez said Flournoy ran into the room, yelling the child was not breathing and she then called 911. Other residents of the home claim Flournoy performed CPR on the boy until medics arrived.
Police report Flourney's story didn't line up with Rodriguez's. He claimed the mother fell onto the child when she lost her balance, causing Rodriguez to fall and land on the child's chest. He also claimed the child accidentally fell off of counters and slipped, hitting his head numerous times in recent months.
The Lubbock medical examiner reports the child had several bruises on his head and shoulders, as well as a skull fracture and hemorrhaging.
The ME reports these injuries indicate the youngsters death was not accidental.
In a second interview on June 29, Rodriguez admitted to holding the child while arguing with Flournoy. She said she threw the child onto a concrete floor, causing him to strike his head. She said didn't seek medical attention for the infant because "she was not sure if the insurance had started and they did not want a big medical bill."
Rodriguez and Flournoy were each held on a charge of injury to a child under 14. Both bonds were set at $500,000.
