The Diaz family from Georgetown, Texas, has announced the heartbreaking passing of their beloved son, Jeremy Diaz, after a prolonged struggle following a vicious attack at their home.
The young boy, only six years old, succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday, marking the end of a valiant fight that lasted over two months.
The harrowing incident occurred when an intruder, identified as Daniel Logan, allegedly forced his way into the Diaz family’s home, unleashing a brutal assault that changed the trajectory of Jeremy’s life forever.
Reports reveal that Logan, 39, wielded a baseball bat, inflicting grievous harm not only on Jeremy but also on another individual on that fateful day of September 11.
Initially charged with aggravated assault with a weapon and injury to a child, Daniel Logan now faces the possibility of escalated charges.
The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office has stated its intent to present the case before a grand jury, seeking to elevate the charges to Capital Murder, pending findings from the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office.
