 MILWAUKEE -- A memorial outside the home where a five-year-old boy was found dead the day before Thanksgiving continues to grow. 

Police have identified the victim as Damion Davis. Detectives say he died from blunt force trauma.
 
They say a 25-year-old man has been arrested in connection to the death.
 
It's not clear if he lived in the Riverwest apartment near Humboldt and Singer Circle with Damion and his mother.
 
Neighbors say they were in shock after watching the boy's body being taken from the home by the medical examiner.
 
"It just tore me to pieces, because at first I thought it was a grown person." said one neighbor.
 
A MPD spokesman said the case will be handed over to the District Attorneys office.
 
The family who said they were to shaken up to talk tell TODAY'S TMJ4 no funeral arrangements have been made.
