What happened: Two stories emerged regarding Ransom's injury on Nov. 28, 2007. In one version, his mother, Julie Anne Burt-Gibbons, said she was folding laundry and heard a thud, only to discover her baby “limp.” Another version given to authorities was that Ransom's 18-month-old sibling dropped the infant on his head. The baby was taken to Reynolds Army Hospital at Fort Sill where he was diagnosed with a skull fracture and subdural hematoma. Ransom died one month later at Children's Hospital in Oklahoma City. The mother is charged with second-degree murder and is awaiting trial.
