Eain's Echo: Community Comes Together To Protect The Children

Eain's Echo, a new foundation, wants to become the voice for kids who cannot speak for themselves. It's a group established to remember the life of 5-year-old Eain Brooks, a little boy who died after his mother's boyfriend allegedly abused him.

Eain's Echo will host a walk at Delaware Park on Sunday, October 20th to raise awareness of child abuse. Registration costs $5. Children under 12-years-old walk for free, but must still register. All of the proceeds will go towards the foundation.

Brook's case brought a lot of attention to the issue of child abuse. Back in September, officers responded to a 911 call they received, showing up to Eain's mother's home on Albany Street. His mother's boyfriend, 26-year-old Matthew Kuzdal, told police the little boy fell down the stairs. Days later, Eain died at Women And Children's Hospital.

Now, Kudzal is in jail on 2nd degree murder charges.
