Investigators: 3-year-old Emilliano Terry was beaten to death

According to investigators close to the Emilliano Terry case, tell 19 Action News that the child was beaten to death.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's office has not yet confirmed this information. The 3-year old's autopsy report and charges are expected today.

Authorities, meantime were busy Tuesday night taking more evidence out of Camilia Terry's apartment.

19 Action News spoke with 19-year-old Shawn Dotson, Emilliano Terry's father.  The last time he was able to see his son was about a year ago.

"I popped up at her house unannounced and she wasn't going to let me in but she did.  I asked to see him.  I had to carry him out of the crib.  He didn't saying anything.  He looked very dry, skinny and weak," a quiet Shawn Dotson told 19 Action News Reporter Dan DeRoos.

Dotson claims Camilia Terry did everything she could to keep him from Emilliano.  She even told him they moved to South Carolina. 

"She wouldn't answer my calls.  Every number she gave me was either off or changed," claims Dotson.

He found out Emilliano was missing from a mutual friend.  He didn't believe it at the time, but it was confirmed when detectives contacted him.

Shawn has not been told anything since, not even if the body found was in fact his son.

He doesn't want you to judge him or Camilia.

"Don't judge, don't take it somewhere it doesn't need to be, it happened, just let it rest in peace," says Dotson.

We have uncovered numerous factors that show Camilia was having problems with Emilliano and even possibly trying to adopt him out.

We asked this confused father, "You would have taken him?"

"Without hesitation yes, yes," stated Dotson.

A rally and vigil for little Emilliano will be held tonight at 5:30 p.m. at Kossuth Park at East 121 and Shaker Blvd. in Cleveland.
