5-Year-Old Suffered Ruptured Lung As His Mom’s Boyfriend Beat Him To Death, Then Told Police They Were Playing A Biting Game

Daniel James Holdcroft Jr. was an adorable 5-year-old little boy living in Schererville, Indiana. He lived with his mom and his siblings.

Daniel’s dad whom he was named after, Daniel James Holdcroft, shared on GoFundMe that, “he was very loving and caring.”

On April 16th, Daniel’s mom went to work that afternoon and left him and his siblings in the care of her boyfriend, 26-year-old Michael J. Tunstall.

But Michael didn’t take care of Daniel…instead, he brutally beat this little boy to death and told police a bizarre story to try to cover up what happened.
