TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) - Toxicology tests show a Turlock man who
savagely beat and stomped his 2-year-old son to death on the side of a dark road was not using drugs.
The Stanislaus County coroner says 27-year-old Sergio Aguiar didn't have any drugs or alcohol in his system that might have explained his behavior.
Aguiar was fatally shot by police on June 14 after ignoring orders to stop attacking the child. The boy died from injuries to his head and face.
Investigators and co-workers say Aguiar had no criminal history or signs of mental illness.
