Coroner: Richland Toddler Had Evidence of Prior Abuse
RICHLAND -- It now seems there was a history of abuse on the Richland toddler whose death was recently ruled a homicide.

Just last week, the death of Ryder Morrison, 1, was ruled a homicide. Now, the Benton County Coroner says there were prior injuries on the boy's body, though he's not willing to reveal what those were.

Richland police are still deep in this investigation. The family has never publicly spoken, but has said the child was with a nanny when he took a blow to his head, which ultimately killed him.
