EDIT: I have changed the title of the post to more accurately reflect the nature of the indictment. My apologies for the original error.
Before we get too deep into anything here, this is all speculation at this point, though it sounds really, really bad.
With that said. . .damn it, damn it, damn it, damn it.

The speculation on Twitter ranges from everything to the basics to prosecutors having pictures of the child's injuries and that Peterson is "directly involved." Seriously, it's everywhere online right now.
If this is true, it's incredibly surprising and heartbreaking, particularly in the wake of Peterson losing his own son as a result of child abuse nearly a year ago.
Honestly, other than that, I'm pretty much numb and at a loss for words at this point. I really, really hope that this isn't true, but it's kind of sounding like it's time to expect the worst.
