Family of baby involved in ‘suspicious’ death: ‘We’re trusting the justice system'
Cayden Colwell would’ve turned three months old on Sunday. And on a day his family might have been celebrating another month of his young life, they chose to honor him in another way.

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Thursday, April 11, Clearcreek Township police arrived at a home on State Route 123 and found Cayden Colwell unresponsive.

Three days later, Cayden was taken off life support.

On Sunday, Cayden’s family attended a special event in his honor, as they continue to search for answers in this case.

Cayden Colwell would’ve turned three months old on Sunday. And on a day his family might have been celebrating another month of his young life, they chose to honor him in another way.

“Cayden was full of life, he was my great nephew..he was a sweet baby.” said Cayden’s great aunt, Christal Hipsher.

“We’re here because abuse awareness has hit home for us.” said Hipsher.

Cayden Colwell’s family spent their afternoon at a sports bar in Franklin. They wore blue t-shirts with #JusticeforCayden written on the back and his hand-print on the front. They sold wristbands with the same slogan on them. The goal, raising funds and awareness for child abuse.

His family says he is the latest victim of child abuse. They’ve held onto this belief since he died. But police have not made any arrests in the case and have not released any new information since his death.

As Cayden’s family waits for answers, they honored him by joining Rylee Sellars’ family at a child abuse awareness event in her name.

“Our slogan for the foundation is ‘Inspiring hope in the midst of heartache.’ And that’s what we wanted to do, turning grief into something good.” Said the President of Rylee Sellars Foundation,Billie Smith.

Clearcreek Township police have not confirmed Cayden died at the hands of an abuser.

We’re following this case closely and will bring you information as we get it.
