The Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s office made a report about an injury a 9-month-old boy had before he was found unconscious at a daycare in Homestead last year.
NBC 6 says that the report, which came out on Monday, said that Tayvon Tomlin had a “partially healed skull fracture” that was seven to twelve days old. Tayvon had just started walking a few weeks before he di*d. This led authorities to think that the fracture could have been caused by an accident.
NBC6 says, however, that the reason for Tayvon’s deαth is still unknown. Michael Levine, an attorney for the Tomlin family, told the Miami Herald that the family is worried about “what else they don’t know about Tayvon’s time at the daycare” because they never saw the baby fall or get hurt while he was there.
“The reports of the skull fractures are concerning, particularly if they happened at the daycare, which did not have working cameras in the infant room,” Levine said in a statement.
“Although the medical examiner could not determine the cause of deαth, we know the daycare’s negligence is the reason why Trayvon is no longer with us today.”
Attorneys Released Surveillance Video of the Child Before She Di*d:
In July, a daycare worker at Lincoln-Marti Daycare, 510 Krome Ave, found Tayvon deαd. The child’s parents and other family members who rushed to the scene said he seemed “energetic” when he was dropped off that morning. Sean Tomlin, the baby’s grandfather, told the Miami Herald that he played with the baby before he went to school.
In a number of videos, a daycare worker can be seen holding the child almost upside down and patting him on the back over and over for about 30 seconds. Tayvon had nothing on but a white diaper.
Two other short clips, each less than 20 seconds long, show a woman walking while holding a deαd child in her arms and giving him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation a few times.
In August, the Tomlin family sued the Lincoln Marti Community Agency and the people who worked there, saying that they were careless. The claim said that the daycare didn’t have enough workers, didn’t train them well enough, and let kids play alone.

The lawsuit cited the Childcare Facility Handbook, which tells daycare centers in Florida how to follow the rules and what they need to do. State rules say that there should be one worker for every four kids, but the case says that on the day Tayvon di*d, there was only one worker for all eight kids.
In January, the Tomlin family and the people who ran the Lincoln-Marti Daycare agreed to a $5 million deal. As part of the deal, the grieving family gave up their lawsuit.
“I’m still hurting,” Tayvon’s mother Keiara Whorely, 25, said in January. “Something is missing. My son is missing.”
