ALVA, Okla. -- (KFOR) -- The father of a 20-month-old allegedly murdered in Norman is speaking out behind prison walls.
Bryan Abner is serving time for a drug charge, and was looking forward to seeing his son Maddox Abner when he gets out in 30 days.
Those plans are now shattered.
Maddox was found dead over the weekend.
“He was just everything to me. Everything. He was my spotlight and my future. I had so many plans to live life with him,” Abner said.
Among the pain he is feeling there are a lot of unanswered questions.
“I want to ask him myself why? And how? How could you do it,” Abner asked.
Those are the questions he wants to ask Jake Holman, the man accused in his son’s death.
According to court documents, Maddox’s mother said she put her baby to bed Friday night and left for a brief time.
She told investigators her little boy was in the sole care of her boyfriend, Holman.
She claims the next time she saw her little one was when Holman began screaming and she rushed into the room to find Maddox was not breathing.
