On Monday, April 10, 2006, Adams County Sheriff's Office Detectives arrested 22-year-old Laura Cervantes of Denver, CO for Child Abuse resulting in Death. On April 06, 2006, around 10:30 a.m., an Adams County Sheriff's Office Deputy responded to St. Anthony North Hospital on a possible Child Abuse. Upon arrival, the deputy was informed that a five-month old male baby was brought to St. Anthony North Hospital by 22-year-old Laura Cervantes, who was claming that the baby was sick. Shortly thereafter, an emergency room doctor determined that the baby may have a severe head injury. Due to the baby's condition, he was immediately flown by Flight for Life to Children's Hospital. The baby was receiving medical treatment until yesterday morning when he lost the battle and was pronounced dead. Since April 06, 2006, detectives have been investigating this incident. Preliminary investigation indicates that the infant's mother took her baby to Laura Cervantes home, located in the 1700 block of West 73rd Avenue, Denver, Colorado for daycare at about 5:30 a.m. Later in the morning, the babysitter, Laura Cervantes noticed the baby was unresponsive and didn't appear coherent. Initially, she took the baby to a clinic near her home. When she arrived at the clinic, she was told that the baby needed to go to the emergency room immediately. The child was then taken to St. Anthony North Hospital. Laura Cervantes is an undocumented immigrant from Juarez, Mexico and has been in the United States illegally for approximately four years. She was taken into custody after additional interviews on April 10, 2006. She was then transported to the Adams County Jail, where she is being held for Child Abuse resulting in Death.
