Mother, Grandparents Charged After Boy, 7, Found Nearly Starved
GREENVILLE, Pa. (WKBN) -- A disturbing story out of Greenville, Pennsylvania, where police say a 7-year-old boy was beaten, nearly starved, and resorted to eating insects to stay alive.
When investigators found the boy, they say he looked like a human skeleton and weighed just 25 pounds.
Neighbors say the revelations about what was going on in the home are tough to swallow.
aI do not want to see children hurt and there is no excuse for it,a said Donna Wagner, who attends church nearby. She says she canat fathom how any mother could let a child starve, especially with three other children in the house.
aWhy would you do that to just one child,a said Wagner.
Dorine Pritts lives next door. She says she never had a clue anything was wrong. aSeen little girls playing out here and we really didnat pay that much attention,a Pritts said.
Reports say the boy was not only nearly starved, but also abused.
aItas a shock, and I think anybody that does that to children should get the same treatment,a said Pritts.
According to the Sharon Herald the boyas mother 28-year-old Mary Rader and the grandparents Dennis and Deanna Beighly were charged with several crimes including assault, false imprisonment and unlawful restraint of a minor.
aThat little boy donat deserve that all. She can have life and he canat,a said Pritts.
Now, folks around here are hoping the suspects get a punishment that fits the crime.
aIf they let her out of jail, then that judge is worse than her,a said Pritts. And that the little boy gets to have the happy childhood he deserves.
