In episodes 76 and 77, I told you the heartbreaking story of two-year-old Dante Mullinix, who died just six days before his third birthday. Tyree Bowie, who was seeing Dante’s mother, Leah Mullinix, told police he thought Dante had choked on animal crackers, but Dante’s death was ruled a homicide caused by traumatic brain injury with strangulation and chest compression.
Many believed Tyree was innocent, and recent events have proven that theory correct. In this episode, I’ll provide recent updates on Dante’s case. You’ll also hear me discuss the lack of justice in Dante’s case with his aunt, Sarah Mullinix, as well as Tyree Bowie himself.
This is Episode 131: Dante Mullinix Revisited.
