Who killed Rephael Valis?

The Rabbis and the Edath Haredi community say Yisroel Valis is not a murderer. Fine. But we're still left with his son's dead body, and medical evidence that tells us the baby was beaten to death.

If the father is innocent, should we arrest the mother? The grandmother? The babysitter? Or maybe Edath Haredi believes a rougue medical examiner lied about the cause of death? Actually, that isn't a bad approach. Blaming incompetant and bigoted authorities worked for OJ Simpson. Why shouldn't it work for Yisroel Valis?
