6-year-old Asian American boy dies after baseball bat attack

The 6-year-old boy who was beaten with a baseball bat by an intruder in his Georgetown, Texas, home has died after spending weeks in the hospital.

According to USA Today, the boy’s father Arturo Diaz announced his son’s death Tuesday on a GoFundMe Page that was raising money to support the family. Arturo Diaz said he went to check on his son, named Jeremy, Tuesday morning and noticed that he was pale.

Jeremy was attacked around 5 a.m. on September 11, KVUE reports. Police say 39-year-old Daniel Logan, the family’s neighbor, allegedly broke into the home striking Jeremy and his mother with a baseball bat.

“I saw my 6-year-old laying in a pool of blood,” Arturo Diaz, told KVUE in September. “He was hit in the back of his head, shattered the back of his skull into pieces.”

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office has offered their condolences.

“Our hearts are heavy as we learn of the passing of Jeremy Diaz. In this very difficult time, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend its deepest condolences to the Diaz family,” said the sheriff’s office in a release, according to Fox 7 Austin.

The GoFundMe Page to help pay for medical expenses and support the family is still open. It has raised over $300,000 so far.

“Thank you all for supporting us, and most especially for supporting Jeremy,” Arturo Diaz wrote on the page. “He was a wonderful and loving child that practiced the Golden Rule. In him I am well pleased.”
