According to authorities, the parents of a 3-year-old kid who was tragically murdered in Dallas on Monday morning were apprehended on felony convictions and now risk further allegations. Lacravivonne Washington claimed her 3 years old son was gunned down in a road rage accident, however, the postmortem proved he was hit by a bullet at a close distance, according to court documents. As per court papers, authorities have uncovered no proof of the reported incident of road rage by the victim’s parents. After being transferred to Medical Centre Dallas Hospital in North Dallas, Jalexus Washington Jr. passed away on Monday. The child was fatally shot in the head, according to investigators.
What happened in this case?
Lacravivonne Washington, the victim’s mother, took the child to the health center around 10 A.M, and investigators claimed she told them he had been struck with a bullet in a road rage accident — but officials say nothing of conclusive proof for an event as described by her has been located. Lacravivonne Washington was arrested and brought to the Dallas County Prison on prior convictions from Carrollton for speeding and not using a kid protection seat. She was also accused of interfering with forensic evidence and jeopardizing a child in connection with her son’s murder, according to Dallas authorities. As per court papers, Jalexus’ postmortem revealed that the 3-year- old’s bullet wound was caused by close vicinity, eliminating the likelihood of his being struck by a bullet from a speeding car.
