A woman has been arrested and a man is on the run in connection with the blunt-force-trauma death of a four-year-old boy, Houston police say.
Dustyn Skyler Roff was found dead in the 7100 block of Hillcroft about 6:15 a.m. Friday morning.
His mother Britni Bereasa Glover, 23, has been arrested and charged with injury to a child by omission. Her boyfriend Michael Allen Seaton, 21, faces capital murder charges and is on the run.
"HPD officers responded to a report of a deceased child at the above address and found young Dustyn to have suffered multiple injuries and bruises in various stages of healing throughout his body," police say.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Seaton or information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crimestoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
