Babysitter Charged with First-Degree Murder after Toddler’s Fatal Head Injury

A Riverside woman has been charged with first-degree murder following a tragic incident where a toddler under her care suffered a fatal head injury

The investigation commenced when the Riverside County coroner’s office alerted the Beaumont Police Department about a 15-month-old child who had sustained a head injury while in the babysitter’s care on Barolo Way. Initially, the babysitter claimed the child had fallen while running.

The toddler was rushed to a hospital due to head swelling and brain bleeding, but sadly, did not survive. Further investigation by the Beaumont police revealed that another child, a 2-year-old, had allegedly suffered severe injuries while under the same babysitter’s supervision. These injuries had not been reported, and the child did not require hospitalization.

Heather Greenman, the suspect, was arrested on charges of child abuse and abuse resulting in death. The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office later added the charge of first-degree murder after reviewing the case. Greenman pleaded not guilty to all charges and is currently held at the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility with bail set at $1 million.

Authorities suspect that there may be additional victims. Parents who previously hired Greenman and observed unexplained injuries are urged to contact the Beaumont Police Department. Any information or potential victims can be reported anonymously via email or by contacting the department directly.
