A 6-month-old baby boy has died in Phoenix, Arizona, and it was a result of his own father’s doing. An already disturbing situation would only go from bad to worse when the police interviewed the father, and they were left horrified to learn what he admitted doing to his own flesh and blood.
Parenting can be one of the most difficult responsibilities a person can face. Unfortunately, some people aren’t equipped to do the job, and 30-year-old, Robert Anthony Resendiz is one of them. In fact, while he was taking care of his 6-month-old baby boy, he did something so disturbing, it resulted in the young boy losing his life.
When Phoenix police were called to Resendiz’s home, they could never have imagined what they were about to discover. They walked into the residence and found the six-month-old baby unresponsive and not breathing and immediately began to perform CPR on him until paramedics arrived and rushed him to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Sadly, when the infant arrived, the doctors quickly confirm everyone’s worst fears – the infant wasn’t going to make it. According to Daily Mail, “Doctors there told police that the infant had lacerations to his liver and pancreas, a broken wrist and bruising on his thigh,” and that “the injuries are not survivable.”
When police questioned the father, they were left horrified by what he freely admitted to doing. He told police that he had “pressed the infant’s legs over his head and bent his body to get his son to stop crying. He said he didn’t release the pressure until the baby stopped moving and was limp,” according to Pix 11. He had literally taken his tiny, helpless son and practically broke him in half. To make matters even worse, he later admitted to biting the child twice out of frustration.
Resendiz was initially booked on child abuse charges. Now that the child has died, he may be facing additional charges, depending on what other sick discoveries the police make, and should have murder added to the list.
This man is truly disgusting, and many social media users couldn’t believe what he did. In fact, one social media user described him perfectly with one word — “Filth.”
Another social media user expressed another agonizing side of this story when they stated, “What in this world. Imagine carrying a baby for 9 months and then this monster kills it. So incredibly sad. The poor thing never had a chance.” Of course, another social media user said, “what an evil man I hope his state has the death penalty.”
It’s a shame that this innocent young boy was killed by his own father. A father is supposed to be the protector of the family and literally keep his wife and children safe from harm. Unfortunately, this sick man did the exact opposite and hurt his own son so badly that he killed him.
For the rest of his life, may he replay his infants last agonizing moments, knowing that he was the one who not only caused him that amount of unnecessary pain over a simple cry but that he killed him because of it. Our world is turning into a dark and twisted place, where parents can’t even be trusted alone with their own children.
A mother and a father are the two people who are supposed to be there for a child, to care for them and make them feel safe. Sadly, this young boy wasn’t given the opportunity to feel the kind of love a real father will give. The only reason any of us should be at peace with this horrifying incident is that this young boy is now safe in God’s arms where his father can’t harm him anymore.
