The 2 year-old son of NFL Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson has passed away from injuries sustained from an alleged attack from a male friend of the child’s mother, Joseph Robert Patterson.
On October 9, 2013 at 5:46pm police and EMS were called to the home of 6201 South Connie Avenue, Apt. No. 118, Sioux Falls Texas. Upon arrival, according to the police log, the child was found to be unresponsive, injuries on the child appeared to be other than from accident, and the male friend of the child’s mother, Joseph Robert Patterson, age 27, (who was the only other person in the home) was arrested for aggravated assault and battery of an infant.
Adrian Peterson is requesting privacy regarding this “personal matter”.
Peterson has said that football is a place of refuge and the team is his family, after the injury but prior to his son dying, he was going to still play in Sunday’s game. The reps for the Minnesota Vikings have said that it will be Peterson’s call on whether or not he will play.
