    What Happened to Christopher: An American Family's Story of Shaken Baby Syndrome
    by Ann-Janine Morey, M. Joan McDermott

  • Synopsis

    A tragedy and a trial placed Ann-Janine Morey in an ideal position to write this wrenching exploration of the havoc wreaked on a family by Shaken Baby Syndrome. As an alternate juror in a 1995 murder trial in Murphysboro, Illinois, she observed a case that has become too common: that of an adult caregiver shaking to death a baby. A seasoned researcher and published scholar, in this book Morey witnesses the court proceedings firsthand, comes to know the families of the toddler intimately, and augments her observations and interviews through research into Shaken Baby Syndrome. The result is an agonizingly human tale supported by the evidence of science, sociology, and criminology.

    Morey's What Happened to Christopher memorializes the short life of nineteen-month-old Christopher Attig (1992­–1994). To reveal what Christopher meant to those closest to him, Morey conducts extensive interviews with the child's parents and grand-parents. She also interviews the officials involved in the case to set the scene from a legal and police angle. Gary Lynn Gould, who was convicted of and imprisoned for killing Christopher, did not answer Morey's requests for interviews.

    Morey characterizes her investigation as a "story of quiet horror because it takes place in a way and a setting that could be any town and many families." Nonetheless, Morey's narrative skill transforms Christopher into much more than an ordinary child, senselessly slain. He is Christopher, irreplaceable and unique. And by the time she reconstructs Christopher's final days and the aftermath of his murder, Morey has depicted the principals in the case so deftly and imbued them with such humanitythat we experience their torment and their hope.

    Morey also provides a juror's insight into the trial. By showing what happened to Christopher Attig and by presenting the accumulated findings relative to Shaken Baby Syndrome, she seeks through education to help prevent future deaths like Christopher's.

  • Synopsis

    Non-accidental head injury encompasses a range of forms of abuse, but is usually associated with a particular form of abuse described as 'shaken baby syndrome' (SBS) - a term that has attracted a great deal of controversy in recent years due to both disagreement about its cause and the reliability of eyewitness testimony. This book explores non-accidental head injury in babies and young children, covering the medical, social, and legal aspects of the phenomenon, as well as the responsibilities of professionals, child protection agencies and the media. The authors investigate the existing evidence surrounding SBS and its recognition and construction, including the tensions between medical and social explanations, and the difficulties involved in proving abuse. They assess the reliability of eyewitness accounts and expert testimony as 'proof', and examine high profile media cases such as those of Sally Clarke, Trupti Patel and Angela Cannings. They also consider the effectiveness of prevention strategies in reducing the incidence of child abuse cases. This insightful book is essential reading for social workers, lawyers, health professionals, and those working with child protection agencies.

  • Synopsis

    In March 2001, the National Institutes of Health issued the following warning: "The number of Web sites offering health-related resources grows every day. Many sites provide valuable information, while others may have information that is unreliable or misleading." Furthermore, because of the rapid increase in Internet-based information, many hours can be wasted searching, selecting, and printing. Since only the smallest fraction of information dealing with shaken baby syndrome is indexed in search engines, such as or others, a non-systematic approach to Internet research can be not only time consuming, but also incomplete. This book was created for medical professionals, students, and members of the general public who want to conduct medical research using the most advanced tools available and spending the least amount of time doing so.
