DETAIL OF INCIDENT:
Christopher J. Gregor, 29, was arrested due to the death of his son, Corey Micciolo. and taken to the Ocean County jail, pending a court hearing to announce murder charges.
An autopsy report confirmed that Corey, who was just a few weeks shy of his seventh birthday, died from “blunt force injuries with cardiac and liver contusions with acute inflammation and sepsis. Court documents indicate that an investigator looking into the case reported that on March 20, 2021, Gregor and Corey were at a clubhouse gym at Gregor’s apartment complex in Barnegat.
Security footage allegedly showed Gregor increase the speed on a treadmill that his son was jogging on. When the child fell off of the treadmill, Gregor told him to get back on and continued to increase the speed. Corey fell again several times and at one point, Gregor appeared to bite his son on the head while putting the child back on the treadmill.
Deanna Micciolo the mother of Corey Micciolo said she began taking photos of her son after she suspected something was wrong. She said she tried to get the judge to allow her full custody of her son but no one was helpful.
“I’ve called time to time over the last two years. Sometimes they would come out and talk to him, but they made it seem to be I was bothering them,” she said one day before his death, Micciolo took Corey to Jersey Shore University Medical Center with so many bruises on his chest that doctors became concerned and ordered X-rays. She was told to take him to a child abuse expert the next day, but April 2 fell on a day that Gregor had custody.
Miccio said the day prior she was told by the court that she couldn’t get temporary full custody of her son amid an investigation, and the boy was ordered to spend time with his father. The next day, Gregor called Micciolo and told her that the boy has been vomiting and was extremely lethargic. Gregor took Corey to a hospital where he passed away.
Gregor then fled the state and turned himself in three months later, “I don’t know if he left while Corey was dying or he left right after Corey died, but he did leave Corey at the hospital,” Micciolo told NJ.com “I have no idea where he was the whole three months that this investigation has been going on,” Miccio said her son hated going to his father’s house and would hide in closets, kicking and screaming, but by law, her hands were tied.
Micciolo told CrimeOnline that a medical examiner initially said her son died from a “heart contusion,” but he was completely healthy with no medical issues when she dropped him off with his father.
