Willie Wilson questioned in 2012 child abuse case

Mother of Wilson's daughter convicted of assault

The father of a missing Indianapolis baby has faced tragedy before involving one of his other small children.
Records show Willie Wilson was investigated in a child abuse case involving one of his other children, Logan Wilson, in Erie County Ohio.
Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenney uncovered records that show the Erie County Sheriff’s Office questioned Willie Wilson regarding injuries to his then 4 month old girl.
Wilson was not charged or arrested in the case.
Logan suffered bleeding on the brain, retina damage and broken bones, records show.
The baby’s mother, Daphne Waters, is serving six years in the Dayton Correction Institution for felony assault and child endangerment.
Police and prosecutors told Kenney Thursday Waters admitted to hurting the child.
Records show deputies questioned the baby’s father, Willie Wilson on September 14, 2012.
 “Wilson advised that a social worker informed him of her injuries and that it made him ‘mad as hell,’” read the report. “He did advise that he doesn’t know what happens at his residence when he’s not there …  Wilson advised that at this time, he is not aware and has no knowledge of any incidents that may have occurred, that would cause the injuries that Logan sustained.”
Wilson told investigators that he noticed Logan was vomiting and appeared ill.
“Wilson believes that the injuries Logan suffered were sustained at a time when he wasn’t present,” records state
Chief Deputy Jared Oliver said the little girl is still recovering from the injuries and is living with relatives.
IMPD Sgt. Kendale Adams said they are aware of the Ohio case.
“Our investigators are aware of that and it will go into the investigative part, and our detectives are aware of that allegation,” said Adams.
