Name: Malachi Lawson.
Died: August 4, 2019.
Age at death: 4.
Cause of death: Fatal abuse (burned with hot water).
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
Malachi loved Paw Patrol and Mickey Mouse. He liked dancing and his favorite color was blue. He had been taken into foster care, but returned to his mother and stepmother. He was suspected to be on the autism spectrum, and walked with a limp because of a fractured thighbone from when he was a baby.
Malachi’s mother and her partner initially reported him missing. Later, they admitted they had burned him by making him sit in a bathtub full of hot water after he had a potty-training accident. His body was found in a dumpster.
