The Florida Department of Children and Families now says the 11-month-old that died on Christmas Eve had a cracked skull and a knot on his forehead.

The Medical Examiner ruled the cause of death as "blunt force trauma," which came as quite a surprise to the toddlers aunt.

Outside the Boynton Beach home lies a memorial and a birthday cake for Kalobe Williams, the Boynton Beach boy who died just days before his first birthday.

"It is heartbreaking," said neighbor Nicey Hands. "All of it is heartbreaking. I am used to seeing the kids out there playing and you look over there and everything is gone. What happened?"

That is what investigators are trying to determine. An initial DCF report alleged the child fell off a couch inside the home and hit his head while under the care of his aunt and uncle. The medical examiner later ruled it a homicide .

"They are not saying you touched him. They are saying these are the things that happened to him," said Hands to the Aunt over the phone.

Hands lives across the street, she called the aunt on the phone so we could share the details of the latest DCF report that states the child had a skull factors and knot on his head.

"She's upset because they keep saying she done it," explained Hands.

The aunt also stated she wasn't home when the child was discovered but the DCF report says otherwise. The aunt told investigators soon after hearing a thump she found Kalobe with his face on the floor.

"She didn't know that her sister had left. That is my understanding," said Hands. "She left to go to the store to get some cigarettes. I just want to know who could hurt this little baby."

DCF has since removed all of the children from the home while they conduct their own investigation into the baby's death and the case workers previous interactions with the family.

The aunt said she never touched the child and she's devastated that she also lost her 5 children for now.
