The 2-year-old son of NFL player Adrian Peterson has died due to multiple injuries. The police officers have recently confirmed the death of Peterson’s son. According to reports, the ventilator of the boy has just been removed. The boy was unresponsive when the emergency unit reached the house of his mother’s boyfriend. Due to his tremendous injuries, they put the boy on life support. Adrian’s son was allegedly beaten by his mother’s boyfriend Joseph Patterson. As of the moment Patterson has been charged with assault of an infant which can probably accelerate to murder.
This is not the first time that Patterson became involved in domestic violence. Based on the reports:
“Patterson has a prior domestic abuse record with a different woman and child, having pleaded guilty to simple assault in an incident last year involving an adult female and juvenile male.”
The mother of the boy has not given any statement yet but according to reports she wants to donate the organs of his son to those who need it. On the other hand, Adrian expressed that he wants to have some privacy and he confirmed that he will be playing on Sunday.
