A year and half investigation into the death of a 15-month-old baby girl in 2006 has led to the arrest of her babysitter.
Baytown resident Brandon Roy Vestal, 22, turned himself in Friday. Those connected with the case say he’s been charged with injury to a child due to not rendering aid. Vestal was being held Liberty County Sheriff’s Department jail without bond.
Vestal is accused of throwing Brooke Blackerby off a 12-foot-high balcony while he was babysitting the toddler in Hull, Texas. Blackberby was eventually flown via LifeFlight to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where she died a few days later from itnernal injuries.
