Man Forced His Son to Run on a Treadmill Until The Child Died

The heart-wrenching case of Christopher Gregor, a 31-year-old New Jersey father, on trial for the alleged murder of his son, six-year-old Corey Micciolo, has sent shockwaves through the community. Disturbing video evidence presented in court paints a harrowing picture of the events that led to Corey's tragic death in 2021.

The New York Post reported that the footage captured Gregor and Corey entering the Atlantic Heights Clubhouse fitness centre on March 20th, 2021. The video shows Gregor coercing Corey onto a treadmill and then intensifying the difficulty settings, despite the young boy falling multiple times.

This distressing incident allegedly stemmed from Gregor's belief that Corey was overweight. If convicted, Gregor faces the possibility of life in prison. Reports from the US Sun indicate that Ms. Micciolo, Corey's mother, had raised concerns about her son's injuries with child protective services just days before his death. She also requested Gregor to take Corey to a doctor on April 1st.


During the doctor's visit, it was revealed that Corey had been forced to run on the treadmill by his father due to concerns about his weight. Tragically, the next day, Gregor rushed Corey to the hospital due to troubling symptoms, including stumbling, slurred speech, nausea, and shortness of breath.

Medical efforts to save Corey were in vain, as a CT scan showed he had suffered a seizure. An initial autopsy disclosed that Corey's death was attributed to blunt force injuries with cardiac and liver contusions, acute inflammation, and sepsis, as reported by the New York Post.

Gregor was arrested in July 2021 on child neglect charges after investigators reviewed the surveillance footage from the fitness center. An arrest warrant obtained by the outlet detailed the specific acts of abuse, including forcing Corey to run on the treadmill and appearing to bite his head.

Forensic pathologists later determined Corey's death as a homicide, citing chronic abuse, blunt impact injuries on his chest and abdomen, a heart laceration, pulmonary contusion, and liver contusion.


In a recent development, Gregor was arrested on March 9, 2022, for his son's death and is currently being held in the Ocean City Jail without bond.

This heart-wrenching case serves as a stark reminder of the importance of protecting vulnerable children and seeking justice for those who have suffered at the hands of abuse.
