Richland Boy's Death Ruled Homicide
RICHLAND -- The Benton County Coroner a one year old Richland boy's death as a homicide.

Ryder Morrison died in surgery after he suffered a head injury at his home in June. The Coroner tells KEPR he died of "abusive head trauma" and he also had other injuries on his body.

Police say this is still an ongoing investigation. They are waiting for more evidence.

A neighbor of the family told KEPR she was, "Very surprised, things just don't go on like that around here," said Lorene Todd.

We tried to contact the family. They were not willing to comment. They told KEPR earlier the boy was being watched by a nanny when he was hurt.
