(9-15-21) Joshua Mize (30) of Bradford is facing a murder charge after Miami County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested him this morning for the suspected abuse of a 1-year old girl, Caelyn Colon.

Mize was arrested around 9:30 a.m. this morning by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office after a manhunt

Deputies responded to Mize’s home on East Vine Street in Bradford around 6:15 p.m. Monday after a 911 call by her mother for an unresponsive 1-year-old child. Colon was taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital where she passed away on Tuesday.

The woman, who was driving to the East Vine Street address, said her boyfriend called her and told her that her daughter wasn’t breathing and then hung up on her.

Mize is due to be in court for arraignment Thursday morning. Mize was on active parole since May 2021.
