FOUR-year-old Cash Gernon was found dead after being abducted from his home on May 16, 2021.  

The crime was allegedly committed by 18-year-old Darriynn Brown.

Authorities have not confirmed how Sherrod identified the suspect or Brown's relationship to Cash.

According to WFAA, Brown wore an ankle monitoring bracelet for a prior charge.

“Through the hard work of the men and women of the Dallas Police Department, this criminal was brought to justice, and it would not have been possible without the Dallas FBI Evidence Response Team and the public’s assistance,” police said in a statement.

The boy had multiple wounds from “an edged weapon,” according to The Dallas Morning News.

“We are shocked, we are very angry about what has happened to this small child,” Martinez said, describing the boy’s death as “violent."
