Two year-old Addie Cook died after being slammed by her mother’s boyfriend, who performed wrestling moves including a “Batista Bomb” on the little girl. Police arrested Addie’s mother, 19-year-old Cheyenne Cook and her boyfriend 24-year-old Richard Gamache Jr., for the child’s murder.
Cook was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and has a $2,500 cash-only bond while Gamache was charged with abuse of neglect of a child and has a $500,000 cash-only bond.
WWE issued the following statement to FOX 2 Now regarding the issue:
“We are deeply saddened by this tragic death and hope that the guilty parties are brought to justice. There is no excuse or justification for the brutal and ultimately fatal beating of a 2-year-old child by a grown man. This is a clear case of criminal intent and a lack of parental supervision.”
