    FL - Brayden Trahern, 4, strangled, 11yo accused, Palatka, 27 July 2015

    Authorities say the two boys lived together with their mothers, who are a couple, in a mobile home in north Florida. Around 4 a.m. Monday, a male friend staying at the home was awakened by the older boy and found the 4-year-old slumped over, unresponsive with blood coming out of his mouth, the arrest report said.

    The child's mother told investigators that she has had trouble with him for several years. When he was 4, he lit his crib on fire with a lighter. He also dug up their dead farm animals, cut their limbs off and carried them around, his mother said.

    Jones also said her son had been a victim and a suspect of sexually deviant behaviors several times and he had previously been caught choking another child.

    The young suspect had recently moved back to the home from a Miami rehab program, though deputies did not say why he was at the treatment center.

    six adults and six minors is a lot of people crammed into 1 mobile home. How did the 11 year old do this to the 4 year old without a witness without someone else seeing and stopping? There were six adults and 4 other children in that mobile home??

    Jones said her son and Braydan did not get along and the two would often get into verbal and physical disagreements.


    how exactly does an 11 year old "not get along with" a 4 year old? and if the 11 year old has anger issues and has displayed a pattern of disturbing and violent behavior, why on earth was he left unsupervised with a 4 year old he "doesn't get along with"????

    Dr. Louie Legum, a juvenile psychologist, said if the suspect was not being supervised or enrolled in a treatment program, he should never have been allowed in a home with younger children.

    From Dec. 2014 to June 2015, the 11-year-old went to a juvenile sexual treatment facility in Miami, according to the mother. She said the boy was on good behavior for the first couple weeks when he came home, but he had become increasingly angrier since then.

    Jones said the boys were in the same bedroom the night of the incident. After Braydan was found unresponsive, the mother noted her son said, "I just want him to come back to life."
    ...
    Court records show Jones was also released from the prison system June 2015. She had been convicted of aggravated assault and robbery.

    Treatment programs are useless if the child returns to the same environment. Dumping your kid at a facility and expecting strangers to fix the problems will not work unless the family makes changes too.

    Seems like the adults had little to no investment in helping the 11 year old.

    Your child returns from a 'sexual treatment' facility, and he is put alone into a bedroom with a 4 yr old? That is horrible planning.

    11 ?? That is so young to have all these issues . I wonder if a different environment would have been the answer . Nature vs nurture . Poor little one .

    If he was born or nurtured into being a sociopath, at least we now know he does not respond to treatment (not that any sociopaths do) and should be monitored in a controlled environment for the rest of his natural life.

    Classic serial killer profile. Fires (how did he get a lighter/flame to set a fire that young), obsession with dead animals. Possibly molested himself. Woaaaahhhh

    It means he was probably molested also. By someone.

    FL - Brayden Trahern, 4, strangled, 11yo accused, Palatka, 27 July 2015

    This is just too sad. What is going on with young boys these days?

    http://jacksonville.com/news/crime/2...ld-palatka-boy

    A disturbing picture is surfacing of an 11-year-old Palatka boy’s life leading up to this week’s choking death of a 4-year-old in their home following Thursday’s release of his arrest report by the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

    "In a word: failure. A failure to properly parent. A failure of the state to intervene. An ultimately tragic failure to save the life of an at-risk 4-year-old.

    That's the upshot of a heavily redacted 19-page report by the Florida Department of Children and Families into the circumstances of Braydan Trahern's death."
