Boy dies more than a month after neighbor ‘ATTACKED him with a baseball bat’


Jeremy Diaz, a 6-year-old boy in Texas whom his neighbor allegedly hit with a baseball bat in September, died Tuesday after having spent two months fighting for his life on a hospital ventilator, according to authorities and his father.

The day of the incident

‘Early this morning I was checking him and noticed a pale face and eyes with no motion. Then his heart stopped,’ Jeremy’s father, Arturo Diaz, wrote on a GoFundMe page last week Tuesday. ‘They tried to resuscitate him, but it was not successful.’

Jeremy was sleeping in his bed on Sept. 11 when Daniel Logan, 39, entered the Georgetown home and assaulted him and another person in the house, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office said.

Jeremy’s skull was fractured in multiple places, causing swelling to his brain, according to an arrest affidavit.

He hit his mother as well

Logan’s mother was also injured. She followed her son into the neighbor’s home after she watched him enter through the shattered back door holding a bat and found Jeremy slumped on the floor of his bedroom, according to the affidavit.

After she pleaded with her son to stop, she was hit in the face with a baseball bat, according to the affidavit.

She suffered a facial laceration, and one of her lower teeth was knocked out, it said.

Police intervention

The suspect’s wife called police to the home just after 5 a.m., the affidavit said. Jeremy and the suspect’s mother were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Logan was charged with causing serious bodily injury to a child and aggravated assault of a family member with a weapon, according to jail records.

The court ordered a mental health assessment and is holding him on $650,000 bond.

Jeremy was doing much better Saturday, Arturo Diaz wrote on the online fundraiser.

The family intended to extubate him because he didn’t need a ventilator anymore. His condition worsened rapidly Monday night when he had a neural storm — a stress reaction caused by brain injuries.
