    This just sickens me. How nine adults knew of this abuse? My cousin lives in the same
    town - hadn't heard anything about this. I can't wrap my head around anyone who would
    abuse a child? Horrific.

    officers with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at a home in North Judson on Wednesday and found the girl locked inside a plywood box in the living room.

    Forty-two-year-old Donna Short, 25-year-old Christopher Short and 18-year-old Patricia Meeks face neglect charges.

    Wow! Scrolling through FB pages. Even as locked down as they are, this poor baby really needs to be way far and away from these people!

    Donna's bit on her Facebook where she put that she is a loving mother and nana, and loves all her kids whether blood or not... *gag*

    From what I've read, I think that the mother of the 3 year old who was put in the box died a couple of years ago, and the child's father got custody. I think Chris Short (25) is the father of the child, and I think Donna Short (42) is his wife, and Patricia Meeks (18) is her daughter.

    The 3 year old and 5 other juveniles were removed from the property by the Department of Child Services.

    After reports of child abuse, officers with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office searched a property on Dec. 14 and found the girl inside a locked plywood box in the living room, WSBT reports. The girl was said to be kept in it for extended periods of time, authorities say.

    Multiple adults were taken to jail, the station reported. They were found in the home, in a camper outside the home, and in a vehicle on the property, WSBT reported.

    “We got a tip from the prison that there possibly could be a little girl being held in a box overnight. Family members said they could hear her crying,” said Pulaski County Sheriff, Jeffery Richwine.

    They obtained a search warrant and went to the house where the little girl was allegedly being held on December 14....

    He said the box would have escaped their notice if they hadn’t been looking for it...

    “The box was shot, approximately 34 inches long, probably 24 by 24. It had a top to it. Inside it was a little girl, and there was a couple blankets in there and then a small thing sleeping pad. This house was full of bugs, cockroaches everywhere, this box had cockroaches in it. She was laying in their asleep,” said Sheriff Richwine...

    If convicted, all three face up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

    "I've heard several DCS people say that their plan is to put families back together…somewhere you got to say that’s probably not the best environment for these kids whose parents can’t and won’t get their acts together,” said Sheriff Richwine...

    He’s hoping that eventually innocent children will end up not in boxes but in loving homes.

    "Never seen anything like this,' Richwine told WNDU.

    'You go there and think, "Hopefully this is not true. Nobody's going to have a small girl in a box, that's just not going to happen." And you go there, when they say it, you just don't believe it. You're thinking, "My God, who would do this?"...'

    He said he also worries that the child could end up back in the hands of the same family members who kept her in the container.

    "I’ve seen people treat their animals better. It’s like a nightmare and I wish I’d wake up,” said Frank Jackson, the toddler’s grandfather.
    Frank Jackson is the toddler’s maternal grandfather and claims that in the last few years, Christopher Short, 25, has hardly let him see his grandchildren. He says this came after his daughter passed away...

    In court documents, Christopher Short, the toddler’s father, claims he did not know anything about the toddler being put into the box…rather he says she would climb in and out by herself.

    Donna Short, 42, who also lives at the home and was arrested Wednesday, stated that the little girl chooses to “stay in the box all night.”
