Ty was in Patterson's care before he was rushed to a Sioux Falls hospital on the evening of October 9. As we reported, Ty's friends and family initially thought the boy had choked on candy, but authorities later concluded the injuries that would ultimately claim his life were a result of child abuse.

A source told us Ty was violently shaken and suffered traumatic brain injuries. He died October 11.
