Jeffrey Baldwin ‘Superman’ statue unveiled in Greenwood Park

The memorial bronze Superman statue of 5-year-old murder victim, Jeffrey Baldwin was officially unveiled in an emotional ceremony on Saturday in Toronto’s Greenwood Park.

The five-year-old boy died in 2002 after suffering horrific abuse at the hands of his maternal grandparents, but the life-size statue in the park at Greenwood Ave. and Dundas St. E. depicts the little boy as seen in one of the few happy moments in his short life — wearing a Superman costume.

“Hopefully the statue will be a reminder to people of the need to report (suspected abuse) and possibly save a child’s life,” said Todd Boyce, who led the charge to have the bronze statue made, at the unveiling.

The Ottawa man followed last year’s inquest into Jeffrey’s death in the news and was moved by the photo that was published of the smiling tot dressed up as Superman — the comic book superhero he dreamed of being.
