Father Charged with Murder of Infant Son, Marijuana Use Possible Factor

SPRING HILL – Earlier this morning we reported the arrest of two people in connection with the death of their 1-month old son (CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY). Officials are now reporting the arrest of a man in an unrelated case who they say is responsible for the death of his 2-month old son.

Less than two months after the tragic death of Carson Abney, Detectives opened a homicide investigation into the death of a second toddler at a residence on Omaha Circle.

RNRF broke the news on July 19th, after Fire Rescue responded to an apartment located at 8325 Omaha Circle, where paramedics discovered the lifeless body of 2-month old Miles Anchondo Jr. (CLICK HERE FOR FULL ORIGINAL REPORT).

Officials notified the media today that the father, Miles Luke Anchondo confessed to killing his son, during an interview with Investigators on October 15th. U.S. Marshal’s and Pasco Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Anchondo in Pasco County yesterday.

According to officials, on the day of the incident Anchondo told investigators that he placed his son’s stroller next to the bed and fell asleep.  Anchondo advised that he awoke to what he thought was the infant crying or coughing, only to find the infant limp.  Anchondo says he removed all his son’s clothing and placed him in the bathtub. But that account conflicted with patrol deputies who reported that the child was dry before being transported to the hospital. Anchondo also admitted to smoking marijuana the day before, and stated he knocked over a small bong while he was trying to help the infant.  He told Kraft he kicked the broken pieces of the bong under the sofa. Deputies also observed what they believed to be marijuana in plain view on the day of the incident.

During a second interview on October 15th, Anchondo told Detectives that he was carrying the infant and “he hit his head hard on the door jamb” and that after he hit his head, the infant fell asleep easily.  Anchondo advised he knew the child needed medical attention but was going to wait for his girlfriend to get home.  During this interview Anchondo also advised that a few weeks ago he was pushing the infant in the stroller “back and forth hard and fast” which caused the child to lunge forward and hit his head on the rails of the stroller.  Lastly, Anchondo told detectives that he dropped the infant on his head, on the tile floor.

An autopsy revealed that Miles Jr. suffered left parietal skull fracture, brain and spinal cord injuries of varying stages, retinal and optic nerve sheath hemorrhages, healing fractures of the right seventh, and left sixth ribs, and also showed signs of recent fractures to the right fifth and sixth ribs, and pulmonary congestion, edema, and focal acute pneumonia.

Anchondo is charged with Murder While Engaged in Certain Felony Offenses and Aggravated Child Abuse. He is currently held without bond at the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center.

CORRECTION: The Sheriff’s Office has asked that I retract the statement above that Mr. Anchondo confessed to “Killing” his son. He only provided a confession of inflicting the injuries that led to the death of his son.

ORIGINAL REPORT

July 23rd, 2017

SPRING HILL – On Wednesday, RNRF broke the news of an infant found unresponsive inside an apartment on Omaha Circle. Paramedics responded to 8325 Omaha Circle around 4:30 p.m. where they discovered the child’s lifeless body and transported him to a local hospital for immediate treatment. Sadly, 2-month old Miles Luke Anchondo Jr. passed away less than 24-hours later from an undisclosed or undetermined cause of death.

Over the last few days, RNRF received numerous tips from neighbors and acquaintances of the parents, Jessica Velez, 26, and Miles Luke Anchondo Sr., 25, making various accusations against the parents, and stating the victim did not drown.

Jessica Velez contacted RNRF last night and provided a full statement as to what she believes happened to her son, and she says, “My boyfriend murdered my son.”

Velez tells RNRF that she noticed bruises on her son’s forehead, bite marks on his face, and a black eye in the weeks prior to her son’s death. Anchondo would just “make excuses” whenever she asked about the injuries, says Velez.

Velez works full-time as a dog groomer and Anchondo would stay home and watch their son while she worked. Velez says Anchondo was “lazy” and didn’t want to work. She also claims that Anchondo had an anger problem and would often verbally abuse her.

Velez didn’t suspect foul play until detectives began asking questions about child’s death and that’s when she says investigators revealed their suspicions about her boyfriend’s involvement. Velez says during an interview with Detectives, Anchondo admitted to “banging the child’s head twice and dropping him on the ground.” Doctors told Velez that her son had a blood clot and fluid in the brain, and that is what they believe led to his death, according to Velez.

Velez says when Detectives asked Anchondo why he didn’t call 911, he said “I didn’t think it was a big deal.”

Officials are waiting on autopsy results before deciding to file charges against the father, says Velez, but she believes they will.

Anchondo is believed to be staying with his mother in Wesley Chapel.

Velez says she is going to have her son cremated and keep his remains with her at all times.

  • FACT…child killers cannot be placed in general popuation or their life expectancy will be measured in days.

  • Do I believe that this murderer had pot in his system when he did all of these horrible things to his baby? Yes, he probably did, BUT, I also believe he had other drugs in his system too. I find it hard to believe that you would do all of these things to your baby, I believe he had every intention to kill his child for it to have such serious injuries to his poor little body. Maybe he just didn’t want the responsibility of watching his child while the Mother worked? At any rate, it is a very sad story, pot included or not.

  • Stop with “the marijuana did it” crap. It’s ridiculous really. If weed made this guy kill his son it was weed from outerspace. If he was high when it happened I can guarantee that he was toxic from smoking meth or snorting some God awful pill. Stop making it harder to legalize something that’s SO MUCH LESS DANGEROUS THAN ALCOHOL. In my opinion, oh pic consumption of booze should be AGAINST THE LAW. How many die each year from an alcohol related incident Tom? I’m sure you’ve looked at those numbers.

      • Just because he said he smoked and dropped the bong. Does not mean this has anything to do with marijuana!!!! Marijuana didn’t kill this baby. This guy did who I can beat was on anther drug. Why didn’t your report that Omaha Circle is full of drug addicts and drug sellers?
        You should change the title to what it really is. Abusive drug addict boyfriend kills baby!!!

  • 1st couple need the death penalty As for the MOTHER ( I USE THAT TERM LOOSELY). SHE CAME HOME AND SAW bite marks on her son?? She is just as quiltyt as him, not stupid just manipulative and think she can play stupid!! Think about it, how many mothers would think bruises and Bite marks are nothing? RIP BABIES, you are now resting in the arms of Jesus.

  • The mom admits she knew he was harming the baby. She also states that he was abusive to her(during there 5 years of relations). The baby was healing from some serious injuries, what were the doctors thinking allowing this baby to go home with the parents.
    Utterly incomprehensible that in this day and age that injuries like this weren’t taken more seriously atleast until it was proven otherwise.
    The mom deserves to get charged the same as the father. How many more of God’s children need to suffer when we are so technologically advanced to stop these occurances

  • Really! The guy smoked pot “the day before?” To say the headline is misleading is a massive understatement. I expect more than sensationalism from you REAL NEWS REAL FAST! Your headline, and maybe the story, needs to be retracted at least until you can marry the headline to story together….unless you want people screaming “fake news” at you.

  • Mr. is a commonly used English honorific for men under the rank of knighthood. The title derived from earlier forms of master. ANCHONDO does not deserve that title. He is a coward and a baby killer, hope he gets a taste of prison justice.

  • How horrible will this world become?

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 4:51 pm
  • And the mother? What about the mother? With that many injuries the child had to be in excruciating pains and there is no way the mother did not know her baby was hurt! Please, stop this open season on infanticide! More often than not people feel sorry for the “poor” mother who plays the innocent victim. This male human could NOT have been a loving, kind partner and even less a caring parent! Treat the mother as a suspect too by arresting her as well. Do it for the sake of that tortured infant who is a wise spirit now looking down, watching and waiting for justice! You know he suffered the agonies of Jesus on the cross when you read what pain these two people caused him during his short little life!

  • I have to agree that pot had nothing to do with this infant’s death , except that’s probably why he went to sleep.
    I also agree there is no way the mother did not know what was going on!!!. She should be charged for being stupid. or worse for doing nothing about it.
    I once saw on here a very appropriate comment FOR THESE TWO: .
    SHOOT THEM BOTH THAN HANG EM. ON THE TREE IN BROOKSVILLE SQUARE.

    • Why “should” they “add” the pot issue since, as you claim , there’s “no way pot caused it?”

  • Tom, I generally have no problem with your reporting, I realize that everyone’s own life experiences will influence their writing subjects and style. But in this instance I must say, the use of “Marijuana use possible factor” in the title seems to be quite a bit off the mark.

    Yes, it seems evident he was using marijuana but based upon the previous article, it seems that his violent tendencies and anger issues were behind the murder of the child. Marijuana may have been smoked, but in my 50+ years on this planet I have never seen someone get more violent from smoking weed.

    As someone that uses cannabis for chronic pain, seeing it demonized in the news strikes the wrong chord with me.

    Just my point of view on the subject.

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 3:17 pm
      • In reading your report I see where it says he used marijuana the day before and that they found marijuana in plain sight. I haven’t read the police report so I don’t know if that says marijuana use was a possible factor. A bit of a jump to make even if it was in the police report but I guess not much more to say if they did.

        Thursday, 26 October 2017, 11:06 pm
          • She knew he was violent, trying to say the violence was a result of his cannabis use is a huge stretch to me.

            Even the study you quoted in your editorial only found 18 of 82 long term cannabis users showed violent behavior, I can’t remember the percentage of males that have exhibited violent tendencies at one point in their life but it was not much lower than that 22%, if I had to guess it is around 17% with most peaking between 15 and 25 years old. The study also found no violent behavior in anyone that never used cannabis. That makes me question their study more than anything. That statistically is near impossible.

            Friday, 27 October 2017, 12:05 am
    • Withdrawal from cannabis can lead to violent behavior. So can “coming down” from it. More often, it leads to irritability especially in younger people. It also causes short-term memory loss and a motivational syndrome among other effects.

      Pot, like any mind-altering substance, isn’t safe, but it also rarely leads to murder.

      Thursday, 26 October 2017, 5:03 pm
      • You might want to do some further reading. The studies that tried to show a link between cannabis use and violent behavior find it very difficult to statistically link the two. What they usually find is other factors which link the two, like socioeconomic status or personality traits that are related to the propensity to use marijuana.

        Further as far as withdrawal from marijuana, I am not even wanting to use that word but I’ll go with it. Studies have shown no association between withdrawal symptoms and aggression among those without a history of aggression. Sure people that have previously shown aggression issues were aggressive after stopping smoking, big shocker there, angry people got angry.

    • AMEN!!!!!!!!!!

      Thursday, 26 October 2017, 5:15 pm
      • That was an “amen” for Mitch. As for Tom, no, this is media sensationalism at it’s finest. The article states that he used “the day before.” The headline is and RNRF needs to retract or remove this story in it’s current form before RNRF gets a “fake news” reputation!
