UPDATE: 8AM Wednesday: Gordon has been found and is in police custody, according to BSO.
CORAL SPRINGS, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Police throughout South Florida are on the lookout for a man cops say killed a 3 year old boy while his mother worked in Boca Raton.
From BSO: Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives have obtained an arrest warrant and are actively searching for a 28-year-old man who killed his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son.
BSO homicide detectives responded to Coral Springs Medical Center Monday afternoon after the mother of the child, Chantel Haye, 20, appeared in the emergency room with Khyese Coach’s lifeless body.
Monday was Haye’s first day working at a telemarketing company in Boca Raton. Her boyfriend of about a year, Corey Gordon, 28, agreed to take care of little Khyese while she was at work. When Gordon picked up Haye from work at approximately 3:45 p.m., she noticed something was wrong with Khyese. Initially she thought he was sleeping, but upon touching him, she realized his body was cold. Corey Gordon began to cry and stated there was a problem with Khyese. Haye demanded that he rush her to the hospital. He left her at Coral Springs Medical Center around 5 p.m. and fled.
The Broward County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy on Khyese and ruled his death a homicide. Detectives have obtained a warrant for his arrest and a search warrant for a relative’s home he often frequented in North Lauderdale.
Anyone with information on Gordon’s whereabouts is asked to contact BSO Homicide Detective Ricky Libman at 954-321-4210 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or www.browardcrimestopper.org. A reward of up to $3,000 is available for information leading to an arrest.
