According to USA Today, Adrian Peterson’s son has been removed from the ventilator and has died.
Reports state that Adrian’s 2-year-old son was on life support after emergency responders found him unresponsive at his mother’s boyfriend’s Sioux Falls home. The mother’s 27-year-old boyfriend Joseph Patterson has been charged with aggravated assault and aggravated battery of an infant. And these charges will likely escalate to murder.
And apparently, this was not Patterson’s first issue with domestic violence. The report states:
Patterson has a prior domestic abuse record with a different woman and child, having pleaded guilty to simple assault in an incident last year involving an adult female and juvenile male.
