UPDATE (September 15, 2017 2:25 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police have charged Delonte Deshawn Mack (27) of the 5400 block of Seward Avenue, 21206 in the January death of his son, 3-year-old Cameron Blake.

Police began an investigation into the possible child abuse after being notified by staff from Johns Hopkins Childrens Center that the child’s injuries were not consistent with a fall, as initially reported by his caregiver, but were due to some other type of force.

Police and EMS first responded to the home of Cameron’s caregiver on Glenwood Road in Essex on January 19 when she reported finding Cameron unresponsive after slipping and hitting his head on the floor. He was initially transported to Medstar Franklin Square Medical Center and later transferred to Johns Hopkins Childrens Center due to the severity of his injuries. He died on January 24 as a result of those injuries. The body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for autopsy, which ruled the child’s death a homicide by multiple injuries.

As the investigation into Cameron’s death continued, detectives determined that his father was actually responsible for causing the injuries that ultimately killed the child. He is now charged with 1st Degree Child Abuse resulting in Death, 1st Degree Child Abuse resulting in Severe Physical Injury, 2nd Degree Child Abuse by a Custodian, and 2nd Degree Assault. He is held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on denied bail status.
