Evette Williams rarely saw her neighbor without his infant son tucked in the crook of his arm, a doting dad who proudly paraded his little boy around the courtyard of their southwest Houston apartment complex.
Father and son were such fixtures at the University Apartments in the 7100 block of Beechnut that Williams started to worry when she didn't see the child for a few days.
On Wednesday, she learned the reason. Authorities found the 6-month-old boy dead in his father's refrigerator, wrapped in a blanket.
"It's just devastating to me," said Williams, a mother and grandmother.
