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 had no siblings, but a family of many who loved him deeply and miss him terribly. Christopher loved to play hide-and-seek with his Uncle Timmy who couldn't have loved Christopher more if he were his own son. Christopher was such a joy to watch, and had such a sweet way about him. So full of love and life, a true joy to behold.
Nineteen-month-old Christopher Michael Attig (Chigger), of Murphysboro, Illinois, was left in the care of his mother's boyfriend while she went to look for a job. Less than an hour later, Christopher was fighting a hopeless battle for his little life.
Gary Lynn Gould, a convicted felon, picked up Christopher and shook him so violently that it resulted in brain death. Doctors at St. Louis Children's Hospital stated that it was one of the worst cases of "shaken baby syndrome" that they had seen in the last 15 years.
