In Missouri, Carthage man found guilty in death of 8-month-old son | Shaken Baby Syndrome

A Jasper County Circuit Court jury on Wednesday in Joplin reportedly found Eddie Salazar Sr., of Carthage, guilty of second-degree murder in the death of his 8-month-old son.

The jury reportedly deliberated for four hours before returning the verdict, and Circuit Judge Gayle Crane set sentencing for April 30. Public defender Larry Maples, who represented Salazar, said a new trial would be sought.

When Salazar reportedly first called authorities on Feb. 4, 2010, he reportedly said his child was abducted by two masked intruders, triggering a massive search led by Carthage officers. Carthage police Chief Greg Dagnan and Randee Kaiser, assistant chief, on Wednesday also noted the work that had gone into the case. Dagnan said the search was especially difficult for officers “because we were out looking as hard as we could because we thought we could find the baby alive.”
