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