Lexington Man Sought for Beating Death of a Child

Michael Allen Seaton Michael Allen Seaton Michael Allen Seaton, 21, formerly of Lexington, is being sought by the Houston Police Department and has been charged with capital murder for the death of a four year old child. In 2009 Seaton was also charged and sentenced in Lee County for an incident where he was found guilty for causing injury to a two year old girl. He was given five years probation and ordered to serve 180 days in the Lee County jail for the 2009 incident.

At 6:15 last Friday morning, officers from the Houston Police Department were dispatched to 7111 Hillcroft. HPD officers responded to a report of a deceased child at the address. They found young Dustyn Skyler Roff when they arrived.

Sgt. Will Gonzales with the Houston Police Department told the Leader, “It appeared Dustyn died from abuse he suffered inside the apartment on Hillcroft. Seaton was babysitting Dustyn on Thursday and got upset when Dustyn’s mom did not come home for lunch that day. Dustyn’s mom, Britni Glover, watched as Seaton took out his frustrations on her child.”

Gonzales continued, “Dustyn had bruises over his entire body which were in various stages of healing, leading us to believe that he had suffered the abuse over an extended period of time.”

Both Seaton and Glover are accused in the death of Dustyn, who suffered blunt force trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene. Glover has been arrested and is in the Houston jail on $100,000 bond.

The Lexington Leader reported in March 2009 that Seaton, along with three other people were indicted for injury and/ or endangering a child.

On January 20, 2009, the Lee County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched to the Daniel Paul Wusterhausen residence located on CR 306 west of Lexington. The 9-1-1 call reported that they had an unresponsive child, who family members claimed had been trampled by cows.

When investigators arrived, they found the child being attended by the Lexington EMS, who found the child unresponsive when they arrived. Star Flight was called and the child was taken to Dell Children’s Hospital.

The initial investigation indicated that the victim’s injuries were not caused by trampling or being stepped on by a cow.

Indicted in that incident along with Seaton were Crystal Ledelle Polk, who was 22 at the time, and the child’s mother, Tracey Diane Seaton, who was 40 at the time, and Daniel Paul Wusterhausen, who was 39.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Michael Allen Seaton, who may be in or near Lexington or Cameron, where he also lived at one time, are urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713- 308- 3600 or Houston Crimestoppers at 713- 222-TIPS.
