2-year-old boy burned in suspected abuse
The little boy is now on morphine because bandage changing is so painful
ST. LOUIS — An active toddler was sidelined with severe burns. His grandmother said the boy was abused.
City police did not have a lot of information, but pictures of little bandaged feet could tell what brought officers to a North City home around eight Saturday night. Trina Farrow took the pictures of her grandson, 2-year-old Kayleb Ryan-White. Farrow said the gauze was protecting Kayleb from infection.
Farrow said Kayleb and his mother lived in Farrow’s home on Sherry at Riverview. But according to Farrow, Kayleb’s mother brought the little one’s shoes from the boyfriend’s nearby home. The grandmother said she smelled bleach. Farrow then asked to see her grandchild. When Kayleb’s mother brought the toddler home, Farrow called 9-1-1.
