Police were told by the child’s mother, the infant was uninjured when he was dropped off that morning at the residence of 33-year old Jessica Watkins, at 527 Gingko Drive. The mother received a call from Watkins that afternoon telling her something was wrong with the infant’s leg and that it was swollen. The mother picked up the child and took him to Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, with the child then transferred to Vanderbilt.
Upon examination it was determined the child had a broken femur, tibia, clavicle and humerus. During an interview, Watkins admitted that when she snatched the child from the car seat, there was a pop, but she did not realize the child was injured until after the mother took the child to the hospital.
