"The boy, identified as Nathan Jacob Coleman, died of blunt-force trauma, according to the county coroner's autopsy results, which were released Monday."

Poor baby 14-month-old boy "Nathan," I pray you didn't suffer long at the brutal hands of your murderer. You were too good for this earth, may your little soul rest in peace and your mother find solace. What a senseless tragedy, this little baby toddler deserved better.

I agree with you buckwheat! What I want to know is if the mother was involved? The police only mention that she reported the baby missing only 20 min earlier... I hate to say this, but this sounds a little suspicious to me. I hope she's not one of these women that try to protect their men no matter what.

I really don't believe he did this, he probably helped after the fact, the whole story is way too fishy. There is no way you can kidnap a live baby on PCH and Long Beach, take him someplace and kill him and then get him the dumpster in less than 20 minutes, he had obviously been dead longer than 20 minutes. They are probably charging him to get him to tell the truth. A story was obviously concocted after the baby was already dead. He probably helped dispose of the body in collusion with the mom.

Nobody kidnaps a child and executes them, child abuse is something that happens from frustration, emotional overload, babies are rarely killed in calculated, premeditated acts, and when they are its usually a family murder suicide situation.

If that baby truly was dead less than 20 minutes resuscitative efforts should have been made, he would have been unconscious for mere seconds or minutes. Babies have been brought back after lengthy periods of time.

Just because he was charged doesnt even mean the police think he did it, they may feel he was involved.

What the hell are you talking about. It didn't say the baby was dead for 20 mins. It said the mother called and reported a kidnapping 20 mins earlier. She could have been at work or the store or wherever and discovered her son missing. Or SHE and her loser boyfriend could have gotten into an argument and he waited for her with her son at the intersection where she said the abduction occured and he killed the baby out of retaliation for her wanting to break up with him. You can speculate all you want, we can play clue and make up all kinds of stories. Bottom line, the little boy is dead and the boyfriend needs to fry and if the mother's involved, she needs to fry too. This is the kind of world we live in. Lets kill innocent children, animals and elders because we get mad at the people who love them. Too many people in the dis-connect mode. I would never allow a boyfriend to watch my kid or even be around my kid. Kids having kids and this is what you get. My belief is this>>>>>>Ki ll a person, you be killed. Eye for an Eye. I'm sick and tired of this bull crap being done.

I couldn't have said it better myself! This case case is disgusting and sickening! I believe he did it though. I think he's the killer. A lot of "boyfriends" get very jealous of their girlfriends child(ren) and then this happens. RIP little baby..you are safe now in God's hands.

This idiot better not get off free. If he was mad that the mother was going to leave his sorry butt, he should not have taken it out on that innocent little angel. He should have killed himself!!! I hope he fries here and he will definately fry in hell!!! By the way, did they mention who the baby's dad was?

Right, the baby had been dead quite some time. Perhaps even the night before, as has been theorized. I wasnt saying he was dead 20 minutes, I said it was very unlikely, and yes the rumor is that when the mother left for school, the boyfriend was left with the baby, he found the baby dead from a beating suffered the day before, the baby never woke up that day. It also wasnt the first time the baby had been bruised and beaten according to people that know all involved.

I have no mercy for a baby killer, just dont execute before the trial, there are many scenarios that dont make sense here, and hopefully the truth will come out, whichever version may be true. Probably none of the versions are true, thats the most likely.

A baby in my own family was murdered being left in the care of the mothers boyfriend, trust me, I have no sypmpathy. He was just arrested 9/11 after almost a year going by since he murdered Aaron. You can google him if you'd like, the murderer of our 20 month old family member was Franklin Byers III, he also smashed in little Aarons head. The baby is Aaron Ishmael. We are going through a similar situation, so dont get me wrong, I would never protect a murderer or abuser of an infant or any child. This one just doesnt add up, you will see.

<quoted text> My condolences for your loss. I can't imagine what would make a person harm a child. They are precious, defenseless, innocent beings. I am deeply disturbed by this. I only hope that in the interest of justice that ALL of those responsible in the death and coverup of Nathan are brought to justice. Little Nathan lost his life.... and so should the people responsible for taking it, they need to loose theirs too!
Wow, I must say it is finally good to see some people are truly paying attention to what they read! You don't have to be a family member or friend to realize this story does not make sense. It is so easy to say fry'em but we never know what all is involved. I too believe the murderer/s should be be prosecuted but only after the investigation has been concluded. I just hope the families of these individuals are not hiding information that would reveal the true killers.

Without a doubt Little Nathan Coleman deserves justice. There is truly something wrong with this couple. If there were prior instances of child abuse was it reported and perhaps the child should have been removed from the home.

Families need to stop turning their heads when they witness child abuse by family members.

Keep in mind that news articles maybe embellished to catch the eye of the reader.

In all news it says the boyfriend was arrested for suspicion of murder not kidnapping. That means when the call was made they told the police the baby was already dead, right ?! 344pm reported "kidnapping" 4pm Nathan found. 425pm Hall arrested. The baby should have still been warm. No cold as ice he was. That baby had been dead for hours. How as the mother claim to not have been there, but he was allegedly kidnapped from you. One question how'd the police know where Hall was at the time ?

I think he met up with her, told her he had been jumped and the baby stolen from him, thats when she made the call. It still doesnt add up, supposedly he found the baby dead in the morning after she left, so he was injured when she was still home.

This case should have been looked @ more careful..the mother had alot to do with nathans case...the boyfriend didnt really have a real motive to kill the baby....the relationship with babydaddy was rocky for one ....the mother didnt really know who the father was mind you the guy she was in love with was in jail @ the time who never knew she had a baby......for a mother that had nuthin to do with the death of her child would have had her face plastered all over tv lookin for simpothy and justice....u talkin about a mother that was insperatable from her first born.... The boy had two ear infections an UTI and one sizer before he was one.... That alone should have been evidence to prove that she was an unfit parent
