By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Four-year-old Cash Gernon was found stabbed to death on a street in southwest Dallas on Saturday morning. Darriynn Brown, 18, was arrested hours later and charged with kidnapping and theft.
A jogger came across the body of Cash Geron in the city’s Mountain Creek neighborhood at around 7am Saturday, Assistant Police Chief Albert Martinez said, adding that it appeared the child suffered a violent death from an ‘edged weapon’.
Cash is expected to face additional charges pending the results of a forensic analysis, police said. Cash was identified by his mother, who claimed Brown broke into her home early Saturday and snatched the ‘happy-go-lucky’ child while he was sleeping.
The mother claimed her son was unknown to Brown and said she had no idea what led the man to target him.
