More and more details are coming out in this tragedy. The 27 year old Joseph Robert Patterson is in custody relating to the abuse of Adrian Peterson’s son.
Rest in Peace to Ty Doohen, the son of Adrian Peterson who died today after being attacked by his mothers boyfriend. South Dakota police confirmed to NFL Media that the two-year-old son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson died from injuries suffered during an alleged domestic abuse incident. Earlier today we reported that Adrian’s son was attacked by his mother’s boyfriend and was in critical condition, and now the little boy has died.
Adrian Peterson tweeted “Thank you to my family, my fans and fans of other teams for their support, The NFL is a fraternity of brothers and I am thankful for the tweets, phone calls and text messages from my fellow players.
Reports later stated that Peterson’s two-year-old son had allegedly been beaten by the boyfriend of the child’s mother. The man was arrested, and police said Friday afternoon that the state’s attorney’s office is considering additional charges.
Adrian Peterson recently found out Ty Doohen was his son less than a week ago, and unfortunately not sure how much time the two spent together prior to this tragedy.
This is the mother to Adrian’s son ……Ashley Doohen!
