MIAMI, Okla. — Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents are awaiting the results of an autopsy being performed on the body of a 5-year-old boy who died Wednesday night at a home in rural Ottawa County.
Emergency medical help and Ottawa County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call to a home on East 130th Road near Miami and found Conner Kreider-Reece dead at the scene. The address was described as the home of a caregiver.
The OSBI was contacted about the death the following morning. The bureau said in a news release that agents have interviewed several people in connection with the case and are awaiting determination of the cause of death by the state medical examiner conducting the autopsy.
The OSBI said the boy suffered a severe brain injury at the hands of his father when he was 3 months old. The father, Henry Moland, is serving a 30-year sentence for the crime. The bureau did not say if the prior injury contributed in any manner to the child’s death.
