The Texas teenager accused of kidnapping a 4-year-old boy who was later found dead claims he wasn’t the abductor caught on chilling security footage, according to his lawyer.
Darriynn Brown, 18, allegedly snatched Cash Gernon from his Dallas bedroom on the morning of May 15 as the tot slept next to his twin brother.
The child was found dead in the street, covered in blood, a mile away a short time after the abduction, police said.
Home surveillance footage showed the suspect, later identified as Brown, standing over the twins before swiping a sleeping Cash from his bed and carrying him away, court documents allege.
But Brown’s defense attorney told The Dallas Morning News that police have the wrong guy, and his client did not break into the home, kidnap Cash or kill him.
“This is not an open and shut case. Even if you believe that’s [Brown] on the video, it doesn’t mean he killed the kid,”
