HPD patrol officers responded to a residence at the above address regarding the death of a two-year-old male, later identified as baby Saint Brown. At that time, the parents of the child, Brown and Patrick, told police the child had fallen down the stairs.
A subsequent autopsy by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences determined the baby had suffered blunt force trauma and the manner and cause of death was ruled as a homicide.
