Child Starved To Death Fed To Pigs

Adrian Jones’s stepmom describes Child Abuse on Facebook, claims 7-year-old was
psychopath

A year before Adrian was found, Heather made a reference about feeding a person to pigs.

The stepmother who pled guilty to murdering Adrian Jones frequently posted Facebook updates complaining about the child, calling him a “psychopath,” and posting photos of the severe, abusive punishments she and her husband gave the boy.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Kansas City Star, Heather Jones was a member of a private Facebook group where she repeatedly made reference to fantasies about killing the boy, and once specifically spoke of feeding someone to pigs — which is exactly how Heather and her husband Michael Jones disposed of seven-year-old Adrian’s dead body after they starved him to death in 2015.

In late December 2014, Heather Jones reportedly wrote on Facebook: “might be the next [redacted] and have to feed some pigs a body.”

A few days earlier, on Christmas Day, Heather posted a message that was a reference to a Walking Dead episode in which a child is shot in the back of the head while looking at flowers.

That same day, Heather posted a message calling the child a psychopath:

“I have a psychopath I’m giving away for free today,” she wrote.  “He broke out last night and (expletive) my kitchen and everything I had baked up!!!  I’m beyond pissed and he’s running laps around my pool and doing push ups till I’m tired unless someone wants him!!!”

As Crime Online previously reported, Heather and Michael Jones subjected the little boy, who came to live with them in 2012, to increasingly extreme punishments, and documented much of the abuse with photos that Heather’s landlord found after accessing her computer, with Heather’s permission, after her arrest.

The little boy was forced to stand outside in the cold, stand in neck-deep dirty pool water overnight, and repeatedly restrained for extended periods of time.  According to the arrest affidavit, Heather posted photos of the abuse to the private Facebook group, including one of Aidan handcuffed to an inversion table.  Other photos showed injuries from the abuse.

The Kansas City Star report does not indicate if or how other members of the group responded to the admissions of abuse and the threats to further hurt the child.

Adrian’s body was found in November 2015, after Heather called police to report a domestic incident.  After police arrived, she told them Adrian had died and Michael Jones had fed his remains to pigs on the property.  Michael reportedly led police to the remains.

Both Heather and Michael Jones pled guilty to murder charges, and were sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 25 years.

AR Infant Nearly Eaten By Rats

Erica Shyrock, 19, and Charles Elliott, 18.

Baby found with nearly 100 rat bites,
parents charged

MAGNOLIA, AR  –  An Arkansas couple were arrested after their newborn baby was found to have between 75 and 100 rat bites.

Police were called to Magnolia Regional Medical Center after the baby girl was taken to the emergency room for treatment for the bites.

A nurse said the 15-day-old child weighed five pounds and had been bitten at least 100 times.

Police said that the baby had bites on her arms, fingers and face, with one bite on the baby’s forehead measuring about an inch wide with the skull visible.

Police identified the child’s parents as Erica Shyrock, 19, and Charles Elliott, 18.

Elliott’s mother said that her son told her that the child had been bitten by a mouse, but said he told her he was afraid the child would be taken away if he took the baby to the hospital.

Shyrock told police that she put the baby to sleep at 5:30 a.m. Sunday.  The baby woke her up screaming at 7:30 a.m. and she found the baby covered in blood.

Shyrock told police that both she and Elliott knew that there were rats in the home, but did nothing to get rid of them.

Elliott told police that he and Shyrock woke up at 5 a.m. to the baby crying and saw blood everywhere and rat footprints in the crib.   But he and Shyrock waited to take the baby to he hospital until his mother arrived around 9 a.m.

Both Elliott and Shyrock were arrested, charged with endangering the welfare of a minor in the first degree.

A Columbia County deputy prosecuting attorney said that new charges of permitting abuse of a minor with serious physical injury will be filed against the pair.  The new charge is a felony.

When police searched the home, they said they found the baby’s bassinet with rat footprints in blood, the baby’s hat covered in blood and rodent droppings on a nearby table.

Monday, the baby had facial reconstruction to repair the forehead injury.

Tuesday, doctors at Arkansas Children’s Hospital told police that the injuries were so severe that the bites would have taken hours and the baby would have been in distress during the time. 

The doctor told police that he believes that the parents were either not at the home or were so incapacitated that they were not able to respond. The doctor said he found 75 to 100 bites covering the child.

AG Paxton Applauds Court Ruling Affirming Rejection of Pornography Convention

May 12, 2017
AUSTIN, TX  –  Yesterday, U.S. District Judge Sidney Fitzwater dismissed the complaint of pornographers, Three Expo Events L.L.C., demanding the right to use the Dallas Convention Center to hold an illicit convention.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton stood with leaders of the City of Dallas and the Dallas Citizens Council in defending the city’s right to keep taxpayer resources from being used to promote the pornography industry.

“It is vital that governmental entities have the ability to exclude sexually-oriented businesses from property that they own,” Attorney General Paxton said.  “The City of Dallas, through its democratically-elected officials, rightfully decided that its convention center and taxpayer monies should not be home to an event where obscenity and criminal activity occurs.”

Attorney General Paxton originally became involved in the case in 2016 when he filed an amicus brief supporting the City’s decision to not host a pornography convention on city-owned property.

Attorney General Paxton submitted a second amicus brief in March 2017 supporting the city’s motion to dismiss the case.  The court granted the City’s motion to dismiss on May 11, 2017.  Joining Attorney General Paxton on his amicus briefs was the Dallas Citizens Council, a nonprofit organization comprising business and civic leaders in the Dallas region whose sole purpose is to provide leadership on public policy issues to improve the lives of Dallas citizens.

Attorney General Paxton is fighting pornography in Texas because of its demonstrated harm on children.

The Texas Attorney General’s Office works to protect children by using the latest technology to track down some of the most profoundly evil predators online.

Attorney General Paxton’s Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) proactively seeks out and arrests predators who commit crimes against children using technology and online sources.

Attorney General Paxton urges all parents and teachers to become aware of the risks our children face on the internet and take steps to help ensure their children’s safety.
