SANDUSKY -- At 7:25 p.m. Monday, authorities responded to an apartment in the 500 block of Fulton Street to find a 3-year-old boy with visible injuries to the head, neck and back. Shortly after he was taken to a nearby hospital, the boy was dead.
Authorities say it had been reported the child was hurt by tripping and hitting his head on a plastic toy, but the injuries were not consistent with that story.
As a result, the person caring for the child at the time, Michael Milner, has been arrested on a felony count of endangering children and booked into the Erie County Jail. Milner's relationship with the child was not reported.
An autopsy has been requested.
The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation was contacted and assisted in processing the residence, with detectives from the Sandusky Police Department.
