San Diego Day Care Operator James Nemeth Had License Suspended By State

10News learned that a day care run out of a home in Clairemont has been temporarily shut down after shocking allegations.
On July 3, the state of California suspended the license of James Nemeth, the operator of San Diego Daycare.
The suspension notice states that a child suffered unexplained traumatic injuries including "bleeding in the eyes" while inside the day care. The boy died a day later on May 24.
The boy's father, Mike Oliver, spoke with 10News on Friday.
"This is just unbelievable," Oliver told 10News. "It's heartbreaking."
His son Louis died just four days before his first birthday.
"It's been very frustrating for us as a family not hearing anything about what's happened to my boy," said Oliver.
Oliver said that all investigators will tell him is that it is an ongoing investigation. Louis' autopsy results have not yet been released.
However, the focus of the investigation is on Nemeth, who has operated San Diego Day Care since 2009.
10News went to Nemeth's home to get his side of the story. He declined to comment.
Earlier this month, a viewer tipped 10News to what they call Nemeth's suspicious and inappropriate behavior. The state's suspension notice stated that Nemeth wrestled with a man for approximately 10 minutes, bit the man and threatened "'There is going to be a fight'" and "'I'm going to kill you,'" all in front of a child.
Oliver said he wished he knew of Nemeth's history before placing Louis in his care.
"As a parent, I'm paralyzed," he said.
