You are probably just like Jason and Jessica, that is why you are taking up for them. Dumb Ass. A little inocent 4 year old boy is dead, and you want to defend the one/ones that killed him. Your brain is fried.

You need to read the paper if the child did not die way was this in the paper. Know say that the child did not die. I believe that the mother and the boyfriend should pay. The Mother can not be much if she is going to cover for the boyfriend after he did this to her child or maybe he did not do it maybe she did. Because if that was my child who ever hurt my child would pay dearly.

Charges pending in death of 4-year-old Lincoln boy

STANFORD — A 4-year-old Lincoln County boy who had been at University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington with a head injury since last week died Saturday afternoon.

Deputy Fayette County Coroner Shea Hunt said a post-death examination showed that Nathaniel Knox died of blunt force trauma to the head.

Hunt said an autopsy was performed Sunday by the state medical examiner in Frankfort but the results would not be released because the death is being investigated as a homicide.

Nathaniel was taken to the emergency room at Fort Logan Hospital in Stanford on July 26 by his mother, Jessica Noble.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department was called to the hospital after doctors determined that the child, who was in a coma, had suffered severe closed head injuries. Doctors also found scratches and bite marks on his body.

Noble told police she was leaving the home she shared with boyfriend Jason Napier on Rice Lane in Stanford when the child tried to follow her and fell down some stairs, hitting his head on the concrete, according to Folger.

Noble said she took the child into the home, where Napier was sleeping, but found the child unresponsive when she returned.

Lincoln County Sheriff Curt Folger would not elaborate on the nature of the investigation this morning. He said charges had not been filed in the case but were pending.

Folger said Napier remains in Eastern State Hospital in Lexington, where he has been since an apparent suicide attempt on July 27.

Services for Nathaniel are being handled by Hearne Funeral Home, 125 W. College Ave. in Stanton. Visitation is after 6 p.m. Tuesday. The funeral will be 2 p.m. Wednesday.

I agree with the real Maegan, i want them in prison or jail. I have had many days with na na since he was born. he was cute, smart, funny, loving little boy who loved to play cars and trucks and had an imagination out of this world for his age. he loved dogs and animals in general. He loved to watch spongebob on tv when he was not outside playing. Spongebob was his favorite cartoon and his favorite movie was the goonies for a long time. Like i said i have been around na na since he was born, i have always tried to help take care of him as much as possible. I am so angry about this along with feelings of guilt. I do not know nor have i ever seen this jason boy, i say boy because a real man would never hurt a child this way. Na na did not like jason AT ALL. He said it a couple times the last time ia saw him, which was two days before this happenend. I could not legally keep him from his mother and i had never seen any interaction with nathan and jason. This is because another party is also involved in this and they always would get him and that is how i saw him. therefore i never had to see this sorry excuse of a boy that killed our na na. Yes I said killed as in all out murder. I beleive in my heart he was murdered by these two people. I beleive it was by the hand of jason and the neglect of jessica for not listening to na na that has led to this beautiful babies death. Yea i know her i never said i respected her or called her friend. i do know she loved nathan and it must be hard on her to lose him. but i feel she should have seen the signs and listenend to him better. I feel guilty because he told us he did not like jason and he was mean to him and we were thinking of calling child services but didnt. If i had made that call maybe he would be alive.All i relly want now is justice for nathan, and for them to suffer like he did in the end. I hope and pray god gives them the punishment that is deserved and our man law can make there remaining time here on earth hell until our lord can send them to hell.
Bless the child

Jason was doing good until he started dating this so called saint you keep trying to defend. I really am sorry that the little boy died but the real reason this happened lies on drug use on both of their parts. She has track marks all over her from using needles. She had left for Wal-Mart to meet her dealer to trade in her food stamp card for drugs and left the kid at home with jason asleep.

I agree 110% people that would do this type of crime need to get the death chair. But first they need to be done the same way they done that little angle.

This is about this little boy being abuse and losing his life not about what these other people have done,from what I have heard some of the nieghbors knew this little boy was being abuse but did not want to get involved,I hope now that if anyone thinks a child is being abuse they will call social services,you don't have to give your name,I know that I will call,sometimes it don't do any good to call but at least you know that you did at least try,I did not know any of these people but this has hurt me and I do hope justice will be done for this little boy, he won't have to hurt anymore and may he r.i.p

First I just want to say I'm sorry baby for what has happened to you but now you can rest in peace little one. Your life here on earth was so short that you really didn't get to experience the good things life had to offer but unfortunately you did have to experience the cruel and evil things this world has to offer. But don't worry now angel you will never have to suffer or feel pain again. You are now free to be a child and to run and play all the time you want and never get into any trouble no matter what you do. So now that you are gone from this cruel world enjoy eternity to its fullest and have fun doing it. I can't imagine what you went thru here on this earth but one thing is for sure you are safe now and God will make whoever did those cruel things to you pay for it so just rest sweet baby and don't be afraid because you are not alone. God your heavenly father will see that you are cared for and will love you til no end with his arms opened wide to recieve you in. RIP
