Tayveon J. Thomas was found unresponsive and covered in cuts and bruises Monday in a Far South Side apartment in the 12200 block of South Green Street, authorities said.
He may have been dead for at least an hour before emergency crews were called to the apartment about 12:40 p.m. He was taken to Roseland Community Hospital and pronounced dead.
His death was ruled a homicide due to injuries suffered from child abuse, the medical examiner’s office said.
