Mother Charged with Murder of 5-year-old Son

Mother Charged with Murder of 5-year-old Son

Cleveland MurderCLEVELAND, Ohio — Charges have been filed in the case of remains buried in a backyard on Cleveland’s west side.

 

Larissa Maria Rodriguez, 34, was charged with murder on Thursday for the death of her son, 5-year-old Jordan Rodriguez. Court documents said he died on September 22.

 

The child’s mother, Rodriguez, was taken into custody. Earlier this week, the Cleveland Division of Police found that a 5-year-old boy was buried behind a home on West 80th Street.

 

Authorities recovered human remains on Tuesday.

 

The body has not officially been identified by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office. According to court documents, there were signs of a physical abuse, including broken ribs.

 

Rodriguez, who is pregnant, has nine children. A Cuyahoga County spokeswoman told child welfare caseworkers have dealt with Rodriquez since 1999. The complaints range from neglect to physical abuse.

 

A vigil for the deceased is planned for Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in front of the home.

 

“Widespread” Flu Cases in Ohio; 401 Hospitalized During First Two Months of the Season

“Widespread” Flu Cases in Ohio; 401 Hospitalized During First Two Months of the Season

Cleveland Flu CasesThe Ohio Department of Health today increased the level of flu activity in the state of Ohio to “Widespread,” the highest level of concern.

The number of flu-associated hospitalizations increased to 144 during the week ending December 9 – the most recent data available – and a significant jump from the 92 flu-sufferers hospitalized the week before.

In contrary, 29 people were hospitalized during the second week of December last year.

Since the flu season began in October, 401 people suffering from the flu have been hospitalized, which is trending well above the five-year average, according to a news release from the Department of Health.

Ohio did not reach the “Widespread” level until mid-January, in the last year of 2016. However, by March, 5,130 flu-sufferers had been hospitalized compared to 3,633 during the 2015-2016 season, and 9,374 in the 2014-2015 season, according to the Department of Health. Also, during last year’s flu season, 5 children in Ohio and at least 3 adults in Cuyahoga County died from flu-related illness.

Flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Pregnant women and infants are particularly at high-risk for serious complications from the flu.

The best way to protect against flu viruses is to get a flu shot vaccine, the Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say. The shots will be offered by doctors, clinics, health departments, pharmacies, and by many employers and schools.

“Flu vaccination prevents millions of illnesses and tens of thousands of flu-related hospitalizations each year in the U.S. … and can significantly reduce a child’s risk of dying from influenza,” said Dr. Clint Koenig, medical director of the Department of Health.

Other ways to avoid contracting or spreading the flu include covering coughs and sneezes, frequent hand-washing with soap or alcohol-based sanitizers, and staying away from public places when sick.
