The Marion County coroner's office has ruled the death of a 6-month-old boy as a homicide. The coroner's office said Nygell Easter died from blunt-force trauma. The baby's father, who lives near 82nd Street and Craig Road on the northeast side, told police Monday his son fell off a bed while in a car seat. The father called 911 saying his baby was not breathing and unresponsive. Police say the investigation is ongoing. No arrests have been made so far.
