A father was accused of running over his nearly two-year-old baby in Colorado. According to authorities, Isaac Bullard was driving under the influence of drugs when he killed his 23-month-old son Jesse James Bullard. The man ran over the boy in the driveway of his home in Cañon City. The fatal incident was captured by a neighbor's security cameras. Police were alerted and arrived at Bullard's home around 11 am Wednesday.
According to arrest records, cited by The Cañon City Daily Record, the video shows how the father backs up in his truck and runs over the baby, then returns, picks up the child's body, reassembles the truck and leaves.. The father reportedly did not realize the boy was not in the van - in his baby seat - until he backed up and saw him lying on the floor.
T he Mountain Mail reported that Bullard allegedly admitted to running over his son when he spoke to police. The 38-year-old father also allegedly confessed to having smoked marijuana hours earlier and still being under the influence of the drug when the tragedy occurred. Police reported that they found 79 marijuana plants at Bullard's home.
The baby's mother, Tamlin Bullard, spoke to 11 News about her son's death. "Once again, Issac put marijuana before his family," she said. “She ruined her marriage by chasing her dream. Now his illegal activities have cost us [the life of] our son.” The desolate mother remembered her baby. "Jesse was the most wonderful boy," said Tamlin. “He loved everything, he loved nature, he loved animals. I think God realized that he was too perfect for this cruel world and took him home."
A GoFundMe account has been created to raise funds for the baby's funeral. Rest in peace.
