CORUNNA COUPLE ARRESTED IN CHILD ABUSE CASE OF 6 MONTH OLD TWINS
Parents Jailed Following 6+ Month Investigation Involving Abuse of Infants
Shiawassee County Sheriff's Office
In May 2017 the Shiawassee County Detective Bureau opened an investigation in a suspected child abuse case of 6 month old twin babies. Detectives responded to Hurley Medical Center at the request of the Corunna Police Department for the suspected case of child abuse.
Both infants had sustained multiple fractures and one of the infants had an acute broken femur, which detectives believe was caused by the parents of the infants while in their care.
