Check back for updates.

UPDATE: 06/01/2016: I tried to pull up Deonne Dickerson's criminal history two days ago but didn't find a free site. The Daily Mail pulled up his criminal history.

I have copies of all of the family's Facebook pages as I knew they would come down. From what I see on Deonne's page he turned his life around and left his criminal history behind. I just see a lot of alcohol and drinking. The rest of Gregg's family appear to be successful and well educated. They seem like nice, happy people.

The mother of Isaiah Nasir Dickerson born December 23, 2012 (3.5 years old) who fell into the Cincinnati zoo gorilla enclosure identified herself as Michelle Gregg to the public. Her full name is Michelle Nicole Gregg born August 9, 1983. Her parents are Jeffrey Lee Gregg from Alabama and Renee Joyce Coleman Gregg from Ohio. Keith Michael Gregg is Michelle's brother born in Ohio on November 9, 1984.

The identities were verified using this public address. Address:12059 CANTRELL DR, CINCINNATI, OH 45246, and phone, email addresses Michelle Gregg posted publicly. Phone: (513) 851-3942 Email: That is not her home address or home phone number.

Her boyfriend and the father of her children is Deonne Bartholomey Dickerson born January 7, 1980. He works in an industrial position. They have four children together including a baby girl named Isabelle Grace Dickerson born July 13, 2015. It appears he does all the cooking. Lots of pics of his cute kids. While he posts a bit about drinking it looks like he takes good care of his kids. The little boy Isaiah is as cute as a button. There's a pic of Isiah breaking through a child proof gate to the kitchen. There are baby safe latches on the cabinets. Michelle took her Facebook page down but the rest of the family left theirs up.

If I had kids in that preschool, I'd remove them immediately. Not only was she not watching her kid in a zoo of all places but she later said it was "just an accident." This was no accident. This was extreme carelessness. The mother is directly responsible for what happened to her kid and the gorilla. Gregg later admitted that she was tending to her other kid for a few minutes when Isaiah just disappeared. Her friend told her she should have done a better job watching her kid. The friend stated that someone could have snatched her kid at the zoo because she wasn't watching him.

“I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers today. What started off as a wonderful day turned into a scary one. For those of you that have seen the news or been on social media that was my son that fell in the gorilla exhibit at the zoo. God protected my child until the authorities were able to get to him. My son is safe and was able to walk away with a concussion and a few scrapes…no broken bones or internal injuries.

As a society we are quick to judge how a parent could take their eyes off of their child and if anyone knows me I keep a tight watch on my kids. Accidents happen but I am thankful that the right people were in the right place today. Thank you to everyone that helped me and my son today and most importantly God for being awesome God that He is.”

Here is an eyewitness statement,

Yesterday at 7:11am ·

My family and I decided to go to the zoo yesterday after visiting my neice at Cincinnati Childrens hospital. For those of you that have already heard, there was a terrible accident there yesterday. And since every news media has covered this story, I don't feel bad telling our side. This was an accident! ! A terrible accident, but just that! My husband's voice is the voice talking to the child in one of the videos. I was taking a pic of the female gorilla, when my eldest son yells, "what is he doing? " I looked down, and to my surprise, there was a small child that had apparently, literally "flopped" over the railing, where there was then about 3 feet of ground that the child quickly crawled through! ! I assumed the woman next to me was the mother, getting ready to grab him until she says, "Whose kid is this? " None of us actually thought he'd go over the nearly 15 foot drop, but he was crawling so fast through the bushes before myself or husband could grab him, he went over! The crowed got a little frantic and the mother was calling for her son. Actually, just prior to him going over, but she couldn't see him crawling through the bushes! She said "He was right here! I took a pic and his hand was in my back pocket and then gone!" As she could find him nowhere, she lookes to my husband (already over the railing talking to the child) and asks, "Sir, is he wearing green shorts? " My husband reluctantly had to tell her yes, when she then nearly had a break down! They are both wanting to go over into the 15 foot drop, when I forbade my husband to do so, and attempted to calm the mother by calling 911 and assure her help was on the way. Neither my husband or the mother would have made that jump without breaking something! I wasn't leaving with my boys, because I didn't trust my husband not to jump in and the gorilla did just seem to be protective of the child. It wasn't until the gorilla became agitated because of the nosey, dramatic, helpless crowd; that the gorilla violently ran with the child! And it was very violent; although I think the gorilla was still trying to protect, we're taking a 400 lb gorilla throwing a 40 lb toddler around! It was horrific! The zoo responded very quickly, clearing the area and attempting to save both the child and the gorilla! The right choice was made. Thank God the child survived with non-life threatening, but serious injuries! This was an open exhibit! Which means the only thing separating you from the gorillas, is a 15 ish foot drop and a moat and some bushes! ! This mother was not negligent and the zoo did an awesome job handling the situation! Especially since that had never happened before! ! Thankful for the zoo and their attempts and my thoughts and prayers goes out to this boy, his mother and his family."

  1. Yea, thank god that kid is OK. There's 7 billion people on this planet and a handful of these magnificent creatures. These lazy stupid people are so irritating.

  2. Too bad the stupid, careless & entitled humans aren't endangered

  3. Hello Mary awesome/excellent reporting....
    I inputed the address this lady has list as the address for her Child Care Center 2015 into google earth and directions and there is no building numbered 2015 on that street. However somebody put a marker for the 2015 address in the middle of the street. Does that mean she is scamming the State as they say she is paid from public funding?
