Man Arrested for Rape and Beating Death of 8 month old Child

A 17-year-old Terrytown man was arrested on charges of aggravated rape and first-degree murder of an 8-month-old child Saturday afternoon, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office said.

Arnold T. Ross, of 136 Friedrichs Road in Terrytown, was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Facility. No bond is available on the first-degree murder charge.
Ross was arrested after officers responded to a call of an unresponsive infant at 1656 Gary Court, Apt. B, near Gretna.
The infant, Da-Von Lonzo, was taken to Ochsner Westbank where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival, according to a release issued by Col. John Fortunato, a spokesman for the sheriff's office.
The death was initially unclassified, but the Jefferson Parish coroner's office later reported it as a homicide after an autopsy of the child's body revealed multiple fractures consistent with a beating and tears in the anus.
Ross, who said he was the boyfriend of the infant's mother, initially told detectives that the baby fell down the stairs while he was babysitting, Fortunato said. But a neighbor reported hearing loud noises coming from the apartment, and investigators noted inconsistencies in Ross's account.

  1. This is one of the most inhuman stories that I have read in a long time. He should not be put in jail, he should be castrated without anesthesa, since he doesn't know what to do with it, he should lose it, and that goes for all preditors who commit this terrible act upon unwilling victoms. This country has a real problem with SEX, and we need to deal with it in the most severe terms when it's used in an abusive way like this, we need to get over our obsession with SEX, European countries don't have near as much problems with SEX like we do it's as if that's all we can think about, and that's a damn shame because there's more to life then SEX!!!!! Until we reguard SEX the way it is suppose to be reguarded, these wicked acts will continue to plague our society
    this business of slapping the offenders on the wrist and giving them a little bit of time in jail, then release them back into society to prey on innocent people again is the wrong way to deal with these Monsters. Once they get the offending organ cut off, that will send a message to others loud and clear," We WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR, AND THIS IS THE PUNISHMENT FOR IT, DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!
    I'll bet the ratio of sexual abuse would drop like a rock in water. Unfortunately, we don't have the guts to take such a bold stand as that in this country, SHAME ON US!!!!!

  2. Damn! After spending all your life in jail. You'll spend your death in hell.. U better get ready. God won't forgive.
