Tipton police and the Department of Child Services got anonymous calls about suspected child abuse on June 5 – after an investigation, the couple was arrested.

Not only was the five-year-old removed from the home, but six other children were taken too.

The police searched the home and discovered surveillance equipment that was used to keep an eye on the boy to make sure he wasn’t stealing food.

 

 

 

I don’t care what a five-year-old does wrong, starvation is not a punishment – it is torture.

I can’t imagine what kind of a person could mistreat a child to that degree.This is such a heartbreaking story.

All seven of the children living in the home shared two bedrooms.

The bedroom doors had alarms, and one had a padlock.

Reportedly, the children would be locked in the room for extended periods of time as punishment.
