Great-Grandmother Says California Boy Who Died Suspiciously Begged Not to Be Reunited with Birth Parents
PALMDALE, Calif. – The great-grandmother of a Southern California boy who died under suspicious circumstances last week said Wednesday that she cared for the child for years between stints in foster care, and he had begged not to be returned to his parents. Noah Cuatro, 4, was in his birth parents' care when he died last Saturday. The parents took him to a hospital after they say he drowned in a pool at their Palmdale apartment complex, but investigators say medical staff found trauma on the boy's body that was inconsistent with drowning.
