    eeuuww! I thought I had read somewhere that maggots, very sterile ones, were use sometimes to help with infectons. Something about returning to old way medicine techniqes. Maybe it was leeches or something.

    No you remember right. Maggots feed on decaying flesh and can clean an infected wound cleaner than a surgeon. Evidently this wound was more than the maggots could handle.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
