Boy found near Wylie pond identified; grandmother arrested

The Dallas Morning News. After eight days, he has a name: Gerren Joseph Isgrigg.

Late Friday, Wylie investigators confirmed the identity of the 6-year-old whose body was found by a mowing crew April 15 near a Collin County pond.

Gerren’s maternal grandmother and primary caregiver, 63-year-old Darlene Phillips, was arrested after 10 p.m. on a murder charge. Her bail was set at $500,000.

“We’re going straight on that she murdered Gerren by her actions,” Wylie Detective Venece Perepiczka said. “This was a very unfortunate circumstance. Gerren was not taken care of well.”
