In Spalding County, a mother and father have been arrested and charged with the attempted murder of one of their children.
The shocking case unfolded when their 10-year-old son was found hungry and wandering in the streets, weighing only 36 pounds.
The child begged the neighbor who found him not to take him back home.
Authorities believe that the neighbor’s intervention may have saved the boy’s life.
The district attorney described the condition the 10-year-old boy was in as egregious, leading to the parents being charged with attempted murder.
The parents are currently in custody, and the other four children have been taken into protective custody.
The investigation into the case is ongoing, and authorities are gathering evidence, including pediatric records, school records, and interviews with individuals who had contact with the child.
There are concerns about possible child abuse and the need to determine the extent of the child’s interactions with others.
Neighbors expressed their unease, mentioning the lack of communication and sociability exhibited by the family.
The family’s home is located in a subdivision where authorities had reason to believe the child was being held.
The condition of the home, including any locks on the doors, was not disclosed.
The 10-year-old boy is currently in a second hospital, where he is in stable condition.
He suffered from malnutrition and had a very low heart rate.
However, his condition has improved, and he is expected to recover.
The details of this disturbing case continue to emerge, and further updates will be provided as the story develops.
