William Olsen - Jailed After Twisting And Squeezing Infant Daughter's Limbs, Child Suffers 21 Fractured Bones
Sandstone, Minn. (The Weekly Vice) - William Olsen, a 20-year-old Minnesota man was jailed after he allegedly squeezed and twisted his 7-week-old daughter until she had 21 fractured bones.
According to police, the infant's parents brought her to a local hospital after they noticed she was unable to move her arm and her leg appeared longer than the other. The baby also cried as if she were in a great deal of pain.
When doctors learned the infant had several fractured bones, they transported her to the University of Minnesota hospital. Doctors there determined that the girl was suffering from 21 fractured bones, with 5 additional possible fractures.
Parts of the infant's body that was injured included the girl's ribs, legs, skull and arm. Doctors performed emergency surgery on the infant, but say the child may suffer permanent disfigurement.
During questioning, Olsen allegedly told police that he squeezed and twisted his daughter's limbs because she wouldn't stop crying. He stated that he was trying to get the girl to be quiet so he could sleep.
Olsen was booked into jail and charged with four counts of first-degree assault and malicious punishment of a child.
