St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s detectives arrested Corey Nauck (25) of Folsom Wednesday (February 28, 2018) in the death of his 7-month-old son. He was charged with first-degree murder.
On Monday (February 26, 2018, Folsom Police Department reached out to the STPSO for investigative assistance with a young child that was at the hospital with suspicious injuries and in critical condition. Detectives learned that Nauck brought his son to a local hospital, offering no explanation for the child's injuries that occurred while in his care at the family’s Folsom residence. The infant was airlifted to a Southshore hospital and died Wednesday morning.
The St. Tammany Parish Coroner’s Office took possession of the body, performed an autopsy, and the death was ruled a homicide. Detectives located Nauck at a family member’s home in Gulfport. Nauck reportedly confessed to losing his temper due to the baby's crying, subsequently physically abusing and injuring the infant, which led to his death.
