Thanks to the tireless work of the Arizona Justice Project, Drayton Witt has had 2nd degree murder charges against him for the shaking death of his 4 month old son dismissed, with prejudice. “With prejudice” means that the state can never again bring charges against him related to the death of his son.

This is another case of the pediatric medical community blindly relying on the “triad” to diagnose death by shaking. Someday …. someday …. they will creep out of the Stone Age, and acknowledge the reality that the “triad” is NOT pathognomonic (uniquely indicative) of shaking, or as they call it today – abusive head trauma.
