Name: Dylan Martin Davis.
Died: November 17, 2017.
Age at death: 11.
Cause of death: Restraint-related; suffocated.
Location: Georgetown, Ohio, USA.
Upon coming home from school, Dylan had a meltdown. His step-grandfather, who weighed more than four times Dylan’s weight, restrained him by sitting on him until Dylan could not breathe. He died of positional asphyxia.
The killer pleaded guilty to reckless homicide, but then was allowed to withdraw his plea and was found innocent because the court ruled that he could not know that a 400-pound man sitting on an 11-year-old boy could crush him to death.
