Warrensville Heights police are investigating after a baby girl’s death was ruled a homicide by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner.
“I wasn’t there to protect my baby. They hurt my baby. They killed my baby,” said Victoria Dillard.
The heartbreak Dillard feels is unimaginable. Her granddaughter was killed while being babysat by people Dillard trusted.
“They killed her. They murdered her. They beat her,” she said.
Little Morgan was just 15 months old. Her mom said she was funny, sweet and beautiful.
“She was everything, everything a mother could ask for,” said La’Shea Mitchell.
Mitchell said she had to work Saturday, so they left Morgan at a family member’s home in Warrensville Heights. Later that day, they got the life-changing phone call and rushed to University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center.
