The boy also had cuts throughout his body and a noticeable bruise on his temple.
The Dayton Daily News and News Center 7 viewed the photos under a provision in Ohio law that makes preliminary autopsy records available to media organizations.
The Montgomery County Coroner has yet to determine Takoda’s cause of death and has not made a public statement about its findings.
However, a preliminary autopsy report says the boy suffered multiple blunt force trauma injuries.
“Excessive acute and healing blunt force injuries (head, torso and extremities - abrasions, contusions and lacerations),” the report says.
The report also says the boy suffered “numerous pattern injuries.” Pattern injuries are those that have a distinct pattern that might reproduce characteristics of the objects that struck the body.
It also says that he had multiple healing rib fractures.
