According to his grieving mother, a 4-year-old boy found dead in a Dallas street was abducted as he slept.
Cash Gernon, the boy who sustained multiple wounds from what police described as a "edged knife," was identified by his mother on Sunday, according to WFAA.
On Saturday, his mother said, the "happy-go-lucky" boy was sleeping when a suspect, identified by cops as 18-year-old Darriynn Brown, barged into his home through a back door and abducted him.
Brown allegedly targeted Brown's son, whose body was later found in the street by a jogger early Saturday, according to the boy's grieving mother. Cash's mother told the station off-camera that the teen suspect didn't recognize him.
