Authorities have arrested an 18-year-old suspect in the kidnapping and murder of a toddler in Dallas, Texas.
The body of 4-year-old Cash Gernon was discovered by a jogger on a residential street just before 7 a.m. on Saturday morning.
“I see something laying in the road and my initial thought was that it was a dog. The closer I get to it, I can tell it’s a human ’cause I see a hand and I see legs. Very traumatizing. I have three kids. To see a child covered in blood in the middle of the street, it’s truly traumatizing,” the woman told WFAA.
The boy had suffered “multiple wounds” from an “edged weapon,” police say.
Darriynn Brown was arrested shortly afterwards by Dallas Police and the FBI and charged with kidnapping and theft, but investigators have indicated they anticipate “additional charges, pending results from a forensic analysis.”
The child’s guardian says they were asleep when the suspect broke into their home and abducted Cash.
This 4y/o boy was found murdered on Saturday am on Saddlerige drive in the Mountain Creek Area in Dallas.
Mom identifies him as Cash Gernon. She says, “Cash was sleeping when he was kidnapped.”
Cash has a twin brother, who mom says, is in state custody now.

Cash was described by his guardian as a “happy-go-lucky” boy.
His twin brother has reportedly been transferred into state custody.
Brown, who had reportedly been charged with evading police in connection with another incident in April, was held on $750,000 bail for each charge he faces.
