EUCLID, Ohio — The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled the death of a 4-year-old boy inside a Euclid home as a homicide.

Officers first responded on May 5 to a home on East 260th Street to investigate the suspicious death of a 4-year-old boy.

The boy, later identified as Musiah Wadud, 4, of Euclid, was transported to University Hospitals Richmond Medical Center where he died.

Three other children, ages 10 and under, were removed from the home for their safety, police said last week when they announced they were investigating the boy’s death as suspicious.

Autopsy results from the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office showed the boy died from blunt impact to the head, neck, torso and extremities with brain, liver, skeletal and soft tissue injuries.

News 5 has reached out to the Euclid Police Department for additional details.
