Update: Suspect Arrested In Death Of One Year Old Akron Boy Featured

Written by

US Marshals have arrested a 19 year old suspect in connection with the death of Arteyon Cannon, the one year old boy who was found unresponsive in an apartment on Hancock Avenue in Akron, last Thursday, August 10.

Ian Belcher of Akron, is charged with murder. 

He was reportedly left to care for Arteyan Cannon by his godmother, when the child suffered what the Summit County Medical Examiner's office describes as blunt force trauma. However, they say they are continuing to investigate, and that the autopsy results they have reported so far, are only preliminary.

Akron police say efforts to resusciate the boy when they arrived on the scene last week were unusuccessful, after they responded to a report the child had suffered cardiac arrest.
