Christopher Michael "Chigger" Attig
Birth: Dec. 7, 1992
Death: Aug. 4, 1994
Murphysboro
Jackson County
Illinois, USA

Baby Christopher, fondly called "Chigger", was a happy, sweet, rambunctious, innocent and loving little boy. His smile could melt even the coldest heart, and he brought joy to everyone who loved him. He loved to eat french fries and would dip one end in ketchup and then take a bite from the opposite end. He also loved hats, and always tried to put three or four on at the same time. He enjoyed swinging in his airplane swing, playing in any kind of water, and playing hide-and-seek. One tragic day, Christopher was left in the care of his mother's friend for about an hour. When he began to cry, he was picked up and shaken so violently that it resulted in brain death. The doctors said it was one of the worst cases of "shaken baby syndrome" they had seen in 15 years. In losing his short precious life, baby Christopher gave the gift of life to two little girls; one his own age who received his heart, and a five-year-old who received his liver and large intestine. His family was devastated at his loss, and miss him every day. Gary Lynn Gould, a previously convicted felon, was charged and convicted of causing little Chigger's death.
