Northern California Man Wrongfully Incarcerated for Son’s Death

Family sheds light on how a major medical misdiagnosis played a role

[RIO VISTA, CA] — In a passionate pursuit of truth, Michelle Lopez, a Northern California mother, has been tirelessly working to shed light on the many infant and toddler deaths resulting from medical misdiagnosis, particularly Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) and Abusive Head Trauma (AHT). Her advocacy efforts are driven by the wrongful accusations of her son, Tre’Kenneth Clay, who is accused of the murder of her grandson and his son, Elijah. She said she is shining a brighter spotlight on his incarceration to help other parents who may be facing a similar situation.

“The controversy surrounding SBS/AHT revolves around flawed diagnoses,” explained Lopez. “As noted by the Northern California Innocence Project in a statement released on April 30, despite its popularity in the early 2000s, the SBS hypothesis has never been scientifically validated, leading to numerous wrongful incarcerations and convictions.”

She said her son is facing felony charges despite Elijah needing critical medical intervention for a major respiratory disease instead. She said it’s similar to medical kidnapping, or when medical professionals assume parents have abused a child instead of correctly diagnosing a major illness. This is especially common in rare diseases and medical experts say that there are more than 80 different preexisting conditions that can mimic SBS/AHT, resulting in an urgent need for medical reform to ensure professionals diagnose them correctly instead of needlessly separating families when babies and children are at their most vulnerable medically.

Please contact Lopez to set up an interview, learn more about Clay’s case and the future of transforming the medical industry to ensure families are properly supported when infants and young children face major illnesses.
