Denver, CO (The Weekly Vice) - Joseph Trujillo, a 23-year-old Colorado man was arrested Thursday after he allegedly left his five-month-old baby alone at home for hours while he went drinking at a local bar. The child reportedly died that night.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Trujillo reportedly left his son alone before embarking on a night of drinking. He was reportedly gone for up to seven hours.

Investigators say Trujillo's mother, who shares an apartment with him, came home before Trujillo and went to bed. She was then awaken around midnight to find Trujillo holding the child and crying.

Police and medical personnel who responded to the residence declared the child dead at the scene. Police have not released details of the child's death and are conducting an autopsy to confirm the child's cause of death.

The child's grandmother, who is said to be devastated by the child's death is not considered a suspect in the case. The child's mother, who is in the Army, is in the United States but does not live with Trujillo.

Trujillo was booked into jail on a charge of first-degree murder. Bail has not yet been set in the case.

This is a weird story... where did he put the kid? why didnt he just let his mom know he was leaving... how did it die?

yikes. just so not worth the night of drinking...

How did the baby die? 6 hours of neglect alone will not cause the death of a child. Was it SIDS?

It's a tough time for 5-month-old apparently...

Will you test positive on a pregnency test if you were previously pregnant and the baby dies inside of you? Say you never took a test until after the baby dies.

Ok, that question had absolutely nothing to do with the story, but since you didn't copy and paste like you have been doing, I will answer.

Yes, you will still test positive on a pregnancy for a little while after the baby dies, because the results are based on hormones in a woman's body caused by the baby and it remains in your system after the baby has passed.

Seriously though, if you are posting here just to spam, we will take you more seriously if you actually read the stories and post relative comments..

For your information I know plenty of people who listen to ICP and would NEVER do any of this to their children!! Myself included!

uhm wats a juggalo? i will admit tht ive left my baby briefly while i went out to party but he was like 4 or 5 and it was only from 11- 1. i know i took a chance but thnk god nothing happened . also i only did it a couple times.couldnt find a baby sitter. at least im honest bvout it. and i dont do drugs or smoke so dont go there. this happens more than people care to admit esp with single parents like me.my child been letting himself in the house since he was in kindergarden and has been watchin himself from 12n to 330 p till i came home from work.nothing ever happened hes now 24 with no mental issues. theres a whole generation of latch key kids out there. but with such a young baby i dunno tht was kinda retarded

scrublightning said...

above anon asshole: leaving a four or five-year-old child alone during the day or night is considered child endangerment. alcohol is a drug, and YOU are "kinda retarded." if I can't find a babysitter when I wanna go party, I stay the fuck home, like any other DECENT person would. what the fuck is wrong with you?
