Death of toddler injured in Kerrville ruled homicide

Gideon Barideaux, 2, died Sunday

KERRVILLE, Texas – The death of a 2-year-old boy who was injured in Kerrville and taken to a San Antonio hospital last week has been ruled a homicide, an official with the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Friday.

Gideon Barideaux, who passed away Aug. 9, died from a subdural hemorrhage, an official confirmed to KSAT 12 News.

Barideaux was injured in Kerrville while his mother visited her boyfriend in the 3300 block of Legion Drive on Aug 6, a source familiar with the criminal investigation confirmed.

The boy was first taken to Peterson Regional Medical Center before he was flown to University Hospital by Air Medical, according to a news release put out by Kerrville police, where he died three days later.

San Antonio police officials referred all questions about the case to the Kerrville Police Department.

“Anytime a child passes away we are determined to conduct a thorough and impartial investigation to find out exactly what happened, and it’s no different in this case,” Kerrville Police Department Sergeant Jonathan Lamb said Friday.

“We’re interviewing everyone that we can speak to, to again determine how Gideon sustained these injuries,” said Lamb.

No arrests have been made in the case.

A spokeswoman for Child Protective Services said Friday the agency had no prior involvement with Barideaux, but that his sibling has now been placed with relatives.

A subdural hemorrhage, or brain bleed, typically occurs after a person suffers a significant head injury.
