MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A father accused of killing his 1-month-old son has been indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury.

According to court records, Caleb Whisnand Sr., has been indicted for capital murder after the death of his son, Caleb Michael Whisnand Jr.

The child’s early 2021 death was reportedly caused by injuries to his skull and/or brain.

Investigators say Whisnand called 911 from the Circle K convenience store on Wetumpka Highway to report his son missing. Later that week, he was taken into custody shortly after a news conference where he pleaded with the public for help to find the boy. The child’s body was found shortly after the press conference.

A gag order has been put in place on the case.
