Child rescued from Whittier hotel dies

Written by 

A four-year-old child found injured and abused in Qualla Motel in Whittier last week has died.

Deputies arrived at the Qualla Motel just after 7 a.m. Oct. 11 after first responders and EMS arrived on scene and noted the injuries to the child. The child was transported to the Harris Regional then onto Mission Hospital, where it later died.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has charged Eric Lorenzo Davis, 23, with intentional child abuse and inflicting serious bodily harm, a felony. His bond was set at $1 million. 

The investigation surrounding the circumstances in this case is still ongoing. Further charges will be considered, pending the results of the autopsy.
