The tiny victim: Serenity Reed
A day earlier, the baby's mother, Jennifer Reedy, 31, awoke to find her daughter lying dead in her crib.
Aguilar was gone, as was Reedy's car and money from her purse.
Police were able to find Aguilar using the GPS in his cellphone.
At a press conference Benton County prosecutor Andy Miller, told reporters: "It appears that Mr. Aguilar was on his way to flee to Mexico."
The Tri-City Herald reported:
Reedy called 911 at 9:57 a.m. Friday from her house at 29 Log Lane in Richland to report that she found Serenity purple in color and cold to the touch, the affidavit said. Medics found Serenity not breathing and pronounced her dead at the scene. An autopsy performed Saturday by Dr. Carl Wigren, a forensic pathologist from Seattle, showed Serenity died from “abusive head trauma,” said Benton County Coroner John Hansens.
The autopsy also revealed a cut and injuries to the girl’s vaginal area, the affidavit said.
Serenity suffered at least two separate skull fractures, the affidavit said. Beneath the skull fractures were subdural hematomas — injuries which can result from major head trauma. Wigren found hemorrhaging around her eyes and bleeding in part of her brain.
More charges are expected to be filed.
