Christopher Gregor

Christopher Gregor is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and first-degree murder in the death of Corey Micciolo. Gregor allegedly forced his six-year-old son Corey to run on a treadmill because he believed the boy was 'too fat'. Corey Micciolo later died of injuries believed to be sustained from chronic abuse. On April 2, 2021 Gregor says he brought his son to a hospital after the boy woke up from a nap stumbling, slurring his words, and experiencing nausea and shortness of breath. Corey was taken for a CT scan, where he began having seizures. Lifesaving measures were taken, but Corey could not be saved. An autopsy on Corey’s body, issued a finding on the cause of death: Blunt force injuries with cardiac and liver contusions with acute inflammation and sepsis. A consulting forensic pathologist reviewed the case in September 2021 that the manner of death was determined to be homicide. It is believed that Corey suffered an acute traumatic injury to the heart 4-12 hours before his death. Dr. Andrew found what he described as evidence of chronic abuse, including blunt impact injuries of the chest and abdomen with laceration of the heart, left pulmonary contusion, laceration and contusion of the liver.
