    Both the dad and DFCS are disgusting.

    In July, Jack Loiselle was taken to the hospital, unconscious and suffering from both starvation and dehydration. He weighed only 38 pounds, according to court documents. The young boy reportedly had burns on his hands and knees along with a bruised jaw and forehead.

    Seven-year-old Jack Loiselle's world was a small one, consisting mostly of his bedroom behind an alarmed door and monitored by a camera his father could access from a cellphone, newly released court documents state.

    Interview with his mother. She lost custody of him a year before his hospitalisation.

    Loiselle said she began dating Lints when she was a teenager, and in 2007, she became pregnant. She was 19.

    Her boyfriend’s attitude changed when her pregnancy began showing, she said.

    “He would call me and threaten to cut [the baby] out of my stomach,” she said.

    When Lints became physically aggressive later that year, shoving Loiselle to the ground, she said, she was granted a restraining order in Fitchburg District Court.

    The couple broke up and her son was born in January 2008. He didn’t meet his father until six years later...

    On June 30, 2014, Lints gained custody, and the boy went to live with the father, his father’s girlfriend, and her three children in Hardwick, an hour away from the family he grew up with, Loiselle said.

    It sounds like Jack was scapegoated by his father, and intentionally tortured

    The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families knew seven-year-old Jack Loiselle was being starved by his father, but did nothing, school officials claim.

    Administrators at Hardwick Elementary School, where Jack is a student, say they made several reports to child protective services last year, when they noticed the boy was withering away to a mere 38 pounds...

    According to records, a therapist voiced concern about Lints' insistence on limiting his son's food and water intake as recently as May...

    Alexandrea Chadwick, mother to Lints' two youngest children, ages two and six months, told police that Jack's strict life was to address behavioral issues.

    A State Trooper interviewed personnel at two social service organizations involved with the family and Jack was allegedly "forced to squat down against the wall as punishment, and was fed a limited diet that did not include any sugar and allowed few fluids as a means of controlling the toileting accidents he had when he was at home."...

    [Alexandrea Chadwick] supported Lints's claim that Jack fell out of bed in the days before he was hospitalized and that the boy would hurt himself by "throwing himself against a wall, biting his fingers and toes and stabbing himself with a pencil."...

    The affidavit also says Jack loved school but Lints used it as a punishment tool- not letting him attend class or do homework...

    [In] police logs from the last year... there were two notable incidents. One in February of this year where police say a child slipped in the bathtub and was unconscious, but they didn’t believe any crime had occurred. The other was in January of this year. Jack’s grandfather came to pick him up for a visit and, according to the report, Lints refused to let Jack go with him.

    Government case review (September 2015):
    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...ciccQGc1WM0IIw

    The Department of Children and Families failed to protect a 7-year-old boy who police say was beaten and starved by his father and who is now in a coma, according to a report released Friday.

    The investigation, carried out by DCF’s special case investigation unit, found that the department failed to pull together multiple abuse reports — an oversight that ultimately led to the failure to adequately safeguard Jack Loiselle.

    Interview with Lints' mother:

    "There's no way," she said through tears. "There's no way he could of done something like that."...

    She says when Lints was Loiselle's age, he was happy, but hyper. She says that hyperactivity took a darker turn and he would have angry, violent outbursts. She said once, in a fit of anger, Lints grabbed his older brother from behind and held a knife to his throat. He was 10 years old at the time.
    "He was finally diagnosed with bipolar - borderline schizophrenic," she said.

    Though the state will not confirm it, LaValley says Lints was placed in DCF care and bounced in and out of foster homes and residential facilities until he aged out of the system...

    Necn asked LaValley if she thought, given his own troubled and violent history, the state should have given Lints custody of Loiselle in the first place.

    "I'm not saying he's innocent, I'm not saying he's guilty. I'm not sayin' nothing. I'm just going to wait," she said. "The truth will come out."

    December 2015:

    Bail was reduced from $200,000 cash to $5,000 cash Thursday for a Hardwick woman charged with abusing and neglecting her boyfriend's 7-year-old son...

    Mr. Ettenberg told the court he had reviewed a transcript of the evidence presented to the grand jury that indicted his client and Mr. Lints, and found no evidence that Ms. Chadwick ever did anything directly that might have harmed Mr. Lints' son.
