Naked one-year-old abandoned by father in Oregon woods had broken leg, skull fractures and meth in his system
The details of the child's ordeal were made public during a bail hearing for his father Brandon Michael Blouin, which was denied by the judge
A one-year-old boy who was found abandoned by his father last spring in Oregon woods had serious injuries and meth in his system, it has been revealed.
Brandon Michael Blouin, 26, has been charged with child abandonment and reckless endangerment for leaving 13-month-old Bradley Michael Thomas naked in the woods in southeast Bend.
The infant's ordeal was fully detailed for the first time in public during Blouin's bail hearing which was denied by Judge A. Michael Adler, who even increased the bond of $200,000 the prosecutors requested to the sum of $500,000.
"When he was discovered naked in the brush, he had a broken leg, skull fractures and meth was found in his system," prosecutor Van McIver told the court about the baby.
Blouin is awaiting trial for the May incident, for which he initially got bail but was rearrested in July for breaking the terms of the bail.
There was another unreported detail about the incident which the prosecutors introduced into the hearing this time around. It was revealed that on the night Blouin allegedly ran off with Bradley, a neighbor had called in 911. Furthermore, the baby's mother Katelin Dawn Jordan, had also wandered off to another nearby home.
A local resident, at the time, had reported that Jordan was found on their property, 'mumbling incoherently' while being covered in bruises and scratches. The young woman later told a sheriff's deputy that arrived on the scene that Blouin had beaten her and left with their baby.
"She appeared to be under the influence of meth," the prosecutor said. However, Jordan was not charged in the incident. After his initial arrest, it was reported that Blouin left Oregon without permission and went to stay in Ohio with his 4-year-old daughter and his grandparents, who put up $2,500 for his release in July.
"This is one of the most blatant violations of a release agreement I've seen," Judge Adler said of Blouin's previous escapade. The judge added that Blouin's grandparents would not be getting the money they used to post their grandson's bail back either. "Brandon is a major flight risk," Bradley's legal guardian, his maternal grandmother Mellisa Jordan, wrote to the court. "He is a danger to anyone and anything in his path."
It was previously reported that the one-month-old was found lying in the dirt near a fence post in the area of Sholes Road and Tekampe Road, in southeast Bend, which was approximately one mile from where Blouin's SUV was parked.
