Danny Platt, a 22-year-old Black New Orleans man, has been accused of murdering his 2-year-old son, according to the Associated Press. Platt apparently owed his estranged wife $4,000 in back child support. After his arrest, Platt confessed to the murder, telling authorities he “would kill either his wife or his child before he paid child support.” Platt has been booked on first-degree murder charges and later told reporters, “I’m sorry about killing my baby.”
