Child Found Dead Near Lake Lavon

WYLIE, TEXAS - Wylie police say a young boy found dead at East Fork Park on Thursday had "significant medical needs" and may have been fed through feeding tubes.

The boy, who has not been identified, was found in the park near Lake Lavon.

Police now believe the boy was about 6 years old. He was about 3 feet, 3 inches tall and weighed about 28 pounds.

A grounds keeper from a contracting service found the body and called 911. Police say the body was not submerged in water.

Police did say there are no reports of any missing children in the Wylie area.

Wylie volunteers fan out with image in quest to ID dead boy

Wylie police pressed a platoon of volunteers into duty Saturday to canvass neighborhoods, churches and shopping centers so people throughout the community could see the doleful face of an unidentified boy whose body was found near a dingy pond south of Lavon Lake last week.

Volunteers from the Wylie Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association and the Collin County Citizens' Sheriff's Academy Alumni Association carried with them a sketch of the boy, who authorities believe was about 6 years old.

Earlier, they had thought he was about 3 because he weighed just 28 pounds.


He showed signs of having used a feeding tube, and Wylie police Detective Venece Perepiczka said he probably had "significant medical needs."

Police said the boy's body showed no obvious injuries. Results of an autopsy that could determine how he died were pending.

Community Determined To Find Identity Of Dead Boy‎

The discovery of a dead 6-year-old at a Wylie lake has galvanized the community to help authorities discover his identity. The doe-eyed boy in the composite sketch authorities released Friday now lines storefront windows throughout the town.

A group of volunteers walked through the town – photo in hand – determined to find out who the boy is and why he was dumped near Lavon Lake.

Cases like that of boy found in Wylie confound authorities‎

The case of the unidentified little boy whose body was found a week ago in Wylie is unusual but hardly unique.

There's the preschool-age boy whose body was found in a laundry bag just outside Chicago in 2005. From 2002 is the case of a newborn boy found dead in front of a repair shop in Weld County, Colo. And still unidentified after more than 45 years is a toddler whose body was fished out of a reservoir in the mountains near Ashland, Ore., in 1963.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's website lists 142 cases of unidentified children, some of them found alive as infants but many dead and still nameless.

Hundreds attend vigil for unidentified boy found dead in Wylie‎

WYLIE – Strangers came by the hundreds Thursday night to mourn a little boy none of them knew.

They lit a candle, said a prayer and all asked the same question: Who is this boy whose body was abandoned a week ago near a Collin County pond?

Wylie police and the Collin County Child Abuse Task Force are working around the clock with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to try to identify him.

Dan Powers, clinical director for the Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County, said he hopes someone will come forward so this child and this community can be at peace.

'Wylie's angel' ID'd; grandmother held on murder charge

After eight days, he has a name: Gerren Joseph Isgrigg.

Late Friday, Wylie police investigators confirmed the identity of the 6-year-old whose body was found by a mowing crew April 15 near a Collin County pond.

Gerren's maternal grandmother and primary caregiver, 63-year-old Darlene Phillips, was arrested after 10 p.m. on a murder charge. Her bail was set at $500,000.

"We're going straight on that she murdered Gerren by her actions," Wylie Detective Venece Perepiczka said. "This was a very unfortunate circumstance. Gerren was not taken care of well."

Hard, broken life of 'Wylie's Angel' emerges after grandmother's arrest

Police have said the actions of his maternal grandmother, Darlene Phillips, led to Gerren's death, but they declined to elaborate. Phillips, 63, is being held on $500,000 bail.

"Little Gerren was not taken care of well, and it ended up to his murder," Wylie Detective Venece Perepiczka said in announcing the arrest late Friday.

The investigation is ongoing, she said, as the task force that has been working nonstop since Gerren was found tries to determine what happened.

Relatives: Public Misunderstands Isgrigg's Death‎

Relatives of the woman charged with murdering 'Wylie's Angel' called the incident a "tragedy" and that it is "nothing like it's being portrayed."

On Friday, police announced that the dead 6-year-old found near Lake Lavon on April 15 was named Gerren Joseph Isgrigg and his grandmother Darlene Phillips, 63, had been arrested and charged with killing him.

After speaking with the media over the weekend, Phillips' husband Patrick and a younger, unidentified man who called him "Dad" said they had been evicted from the suburban Dallas extended stay motel.

Man blames caretaker stress, says wife hoped grandson would get help in park

The woman who cared for "Wylie's Angel" told her husband from jail Sunday that she left 6-year-old Gerren Joseph Isgrigg in the park hoping that somebody would pick him up.

Nobody did.

And the boy – who was physically disabled, had seizures daily and was fed through a tube in his stomach – was found dead.

The caretaker, Darlene Phillips, the boy's 63-year-old grandmother, is charged with murder in his death. She was taken into custody late Friday, eight days after Gerren's body was found near Lavon Lake.

Phillips' husband of 30 years, Patrick, said that his wife cried and expressed regret during the 25 minutes he spent with her Sunday morning at the Collin County Jail. He said that stress from around-the-clock care for the boy was probably too much for his wife to take.

"From our conversation today, she knows it was a big mistake," Patrick Phillips said. "She never planned on this to happen.

"She thought somebody would come along right away and he would be taken care of," he said. "Stress does terrible things."

The boy's father, Jerry Isgrigg, finds the story unbelievable.
