Investigators with the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office continue to sift through evidence in what authorities say is a case of child abuse so severe it left an infant on a ventilator with numerous, possibly life-long, injuries.
One-month-old Faith Mason three weeks ago was taken to the hospital. She continues to breathe with the help of a ventilator at Texas Children's Hospital.
A spokesperson for the Jefferson County DA Thursday said investigators are making progress in the case.
Port Arthur Police Department Sergeant Scott Gaspard said officers have interviewed all witnesses and relatives and they have a scheduled meeting with the medical staff that is treating her. He said officers are being careful in the investigation.
Sgt. Gaspard said they are taking every step possible so not to, "jeopardize a successful prosecution."
According to 12News file stories, authorities said Baby Faith suffered a total of 19 fractures including broken arms and legs, a dislocated shoulder and blood on the brain. She was first taken to Christus Hospital St. Mary in Port Arthur, then airlifted to Texas Children's Hospital.
