A story for every victim

Eduardo Solis

Eduardo Solis, a 4-month-old Latino baby, died Thursday, April 7, in the 8700 block of Beverly Boulevard in Beverly Grove, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

[Editor's note: This death was first reported by the coroner in April, but a determination that the cause was homicide was not made until later. The Times added it to the Homicide Report after that confirmation.]

Ed Winter, spokesman for the coroner's office, said Eduardo was in the care of his father when he was discovered limp and unresponsive.

The baby was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he displayed seizure-like activity and a subdural hematoma was diagnosed, Winter said.

A CAT scan revealed the infant suffered cerebral edema, and he was declared brain dead.

According to coroner's records, the child died from blunt head trauma, and his death was ruled a homicide.

Winter had no other information about the case, including whether someone had been arrested. 

The Los Angeles Police Department Abused Child Unit is handling the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities at (877) 527-3247. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
