For those who have not heard, Jamarion’s mother, Aunyae, was hospitalized on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 after she went into labor with her third child. Her 7 year old daughter, Micaiah, and 5 year old son, Jamarion, were left in the care of her boyfriend in the family’s small apartment in North St. Louis County.
On the morning of Wednesday, November 18, 2020, Aunyae’s boyfriend arrived at St. Louis Children’s Hospital with Jamarion who was in dire need of medical attention. Despite the tremendous efforts of hospital staff, Jamarion was pronounced dead several hours later.
An investigation revealed Jamarion sustained devastating blunt force trauma, to include a lacerated liver and intestine, a broken rib and brushing to his face and inside his mouth. These injuries caused significant internal bleeding and were the cause of Jamarion’s death.
Detectives learned Jamarion had special needs. He was blind and had limited mobility, requiring the use of braces on his legs. Jamarion had no way to defend himself against the suspect’s attack.
The suspect was arrested and charged by the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. He is being held in the St. Louis County Justice Center on a $250,000.00 cash only bond.
Jamarion’s death has left an impact on the members of the St. Louis County Police Department and we feel compelled to do more, especially at a time of year when families typically gather and celebrate the holidays. We feel for Aunyae at this incredibly difficult time where she has to bring a baby home from the hospital, while planning her son’s funeral and also trying to care for Micaiah who was in the apartment when this horrible act occurred – all with extremely limited resources.
With the permission of the family, we started this fundraiser to raise money for Jamarion’s funeral expenses, provide essential care products for the baby and give Micaiah a Christmas she will not soon forget.
The St. Louis County Police Association is the first to donate, but we pray we will not be the last. Please donate whatever is possible to support Jamarion and his family.
