Records: ER staff suspected abuse in death of 3-year-old foster child

KAMUELA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) – Emergency room staff at a Big Island hospital suspected abuse in the death of a 3-year-old boy who died last year in foster care, medical records show.

Fabian Garcia died in July, and the Hawaii County medical examiner determined it was due to blunt force trauma to the head.

But after a seven-month investigation, the medical examiner stopped short of saying the boy had been murdered.

Jeffrey Foster, the attorney for Fabian’s biological parents, is calling on anyone who might know about the toddler’s death to call police.

Foster provided Hawaii News Now a portion of Fabian’s hospital records, which show ER staff suspected abuse.
