A Louisiana couple was arrested this week for brutally beating their newborn child to death, law enforcement say. Analyze Bussone Noehl and John Franklin NoehlAged 33 and 35 respectively, were taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with first-degree murder in the horrific death of their 8-week-old son, according to a Law&Crime affidavit.

Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel responded to a call about an unresponsive infant at an apartment building on Block 3900 of Meadow Ridge Drive on May 24, 2022. Upon arriving at the scene, first responders performed CPR before transporting the baby to the Ochsner Heal Center – O’Neal in critical condition.

Because the child appeared to have sustained life-threatening injuries, homicide detectives from the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the hospital, where they questioned the child’s parents.

In the affidavit, John Noehl told investigators that the victim and the boy’s 2-year-old brother were playing together on the back patio of the home. John said he then fed the victim and brought the baby inside, where he placed him in a “portable bouncing baby bouncer.” John continued, telling investigators that he went back briefly to the terrace and when he came in to check on the baby, he saw the boy “gasp, gasp and then didn’t respond.” He claimed he performed CPR on his son until paramedics arrived and took over the procedure.

Analise Noehl reportedly told police that she was asleep when her son suffered his fatal injuries and was only awakened by her husband afterwards.

When asked about previous instances where the baby may have sustained physical injuries, John allegedly said the victim fell from the portable baby bouncer about 4 weeks before his fatal injuries. According to the affidavit, John said he and Analise did not seek medical treatment after the boy’s first fall from the rocker.

However, medical staff found evidence that appeared to directly contradict the parents’ explanations of the circumstances surrounding their son’s injuries.

“Medical personnel informed the Confederate that the victim suffered a fractured skull, internal bleeding, fixed pupils, intracranial hemorrhage, fractured ribs and visible bruising to the infant’s lower back,” a detective wrote in the affidavit. “Medical staff further explained that the fractured ribs had started to show calcifications and the injuries were in the healing phase. These injuries were probably sustained about 14 to 28 days ago.”

Doctors further informed investigators that performing CPR on the baby would not have caused the broken ribs or lower back injuries she sustained and concluded that she was the victim of “non-accidental trauma.” wrote the police.

Due to the severity of the baby’s injuries, doctors transferred him to New Orleans Children’s Hospital for more specialized treatment. Despite clinging to life for several days, the infant eventually succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at approximately 2:41 p.m. on Friday, May 27.

A pathologist from the East Baton Rouge Coroner’s Office performed an autopsy on the victim on May 31 and cataloged a more detailed record of his injuries.

“The pathologist advised the victim to have sustained a 5.1-inch skull fracture on the right side of his head,” the affidavit reads. “The infant also suffered three fractured ribs on the right side and two fractured ribs on the left.”

The pathologist agreed with the conclusion that the victim’s rib fractures were 14 to 28 days old, but noted that the fractured skull “showed no signs of healing, suggesting that this injury may have occurred more recently than fractured ribs.” Based on the examination, the pathologist determined that the victim’s manner of death was homicide.

Stressing that the victim had been “only in the care and supervision” of his parents since birth, police said his injuries were “apparent to anyone who would have changed his clothes or bathed him” when they issued an arrest warrant for John and Analise sought first-degree murder charges.

John and Analise should both appear before the judge Brad Myers at East Baton Rouge Court on Thursday morning for their first appearances.
