Died: July 22, 2006

What happened: Damion suffered fatal head injuries while home alone with his mother's boyfriend, Jeremy Lakey. Lakey denied hurting the boy, known to his family as “Widget,” but Lakey was convicted of first-degree murder by an Oklahoma County jury in August 2007. Lakey was sentenced to life in prison.

Other: Damion's father, Brandon Dunn, said he was as “happy as I can be” with the verdict against Lakey. “It doesn't really change my life,” he said. “My son's still gone.”
