An innocent 2-year-old baby girl passed away after her mother’s boyfriend allegedly performed wrestling moves including a “Batista Bomb” on the child, who died at a hospital a few days later after suffering traumatic injuries.
The child was suffering from a seizure when EMS arrived at her home in Jefferson County, Missouri, on May 16. As a result, Richard Gamache Jr has been booked for abuse and neglect of a child while her mother, Cheyenne Cook, has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
WWE issued the following statement to Yahoo:
“We are deeply saddened by this tragic death and hope that the guilty parties are brought to justice. There is no excuse or justification for the brutal and ultimately fatal beating of a 2-year-old child by a grown man. This is a clear case of criminal intent and a lack of parental supervision.”
