    UK - Eunice Spry for abusing foster children, Gloucestershire, 2007

    (Warning! Graphic images of child abuse injuries on news site.)



    From The Evening Standard, London.



    A foster mother was found guilty today of subjecting three young children to a "horrifying catalogue of cruel and sadistic treatment".
    Eunice Spry, 62, routinely beat, abused and starved the youngsters in her care over a 19 year period. The devout Jehovah's Witness forced sticks down their throats and made them eat their own vomit and rat excrement...

    walk. Living in this world means choosing, and
    the way we choose to walk is infallibly and
    perfectly expressed in the walk itself.

    OMG, This made me cry. I cannot get over how horribly those kids were treated and made to suffer. Surely someone had to have suspected something!! I wish I could watch the witch burn at the stake.
    Happy New Years

    Surely the parents who lost their children to this woman would have been better parents.

    I can't even get through this. What an evil woman! Why?? Why in the world are there people like this? I know it's such a juvenile question, but how in the world can this lay their head down at night??

    I agree with you GlitchWizard. The homes that these children came from must have been better.

    I don't think it's a juvenile question, Kris. I think we all wonder that and probably always will. Why, indeed?!

    Its sad to know that there a people out there just like her, probably even in your neighbourhood, its sickens me. Sounds like she was doing it for the money.

    I don't think it's juvenile either - I can't help but ask myself HOW WHY why do they do these things.

    How I survived being starved, beaten and tortured by my Jehovah's Witness foster mother
    By ALLOMA GILBERT Last updated at 19:01pm on 25th January 2008

    "You look nice, Alloma. Very smart." DC Martell is smiling encouragingly, as the car nudges through the heavy morning traffic towards Bristol Crown Court, where I will shortly be giving evidence in a child abuse case against my foster mother of ten years, Eunice Spry.
    The detective is a reassuring presence. But in my mind I am still remembering Eunice's scrawny hands around my throat, trying to stop me from speaking out, squeezing the very breath from my body.
    Then I remember that the owner of those terrifying hands is now safely in police custody, and I finally find my voice. "Thanks," I say to the detective. "But are you really sure there'll be a screen?"
    DC Martell's face softens. "I'm sure, Alloma. She'll be brought into court after you've arrived, so you really won't see her face. I promise." I nod slowly, trying to take this in. God I hope you're right, I think, because if she can see me, she can get me. The minute I'm skewered by her gaze, by those hard, grey eyes that bore into my very soul, then I'll be lost.

    I don't understand all of the energy that goes into torturing children when it is far easier to love them.

    This woman sounds like Sybill's mother...a real sicko. I don't understand why she wasn't given life in prison.

    These two, Alloma and her brother, were a private arrangement made after Social Services had removed her from the foster list because she had reached the limit of children.

    Plus Alloma said that when social workers came to visit, everything looked perfect while they were there and then went back to the horrifying truth after they left.

    It's all in the article if you want more details.

    believe09, I never thought of it that way. I think it would be so much harder to treat children (anyone!) this way. I think you just have to be an evil person in the first place. I'd love it if someone, like Anne Rule, would write a book about her so we could see what her life was like when she was a child. Did she have it good or was she in the system as well?

    What bothers me most is that you know these abusers KNOW they are in the wrong because they make sure the children don't tell others about it, and they hide it from social workers when they visit. Sick, sick, sick.

    It's going on right now somewhere too. I pray a lot for these unknown victims.

    In article when a social worker (inspector) came out the one time, foster mother (Eunice) had scrubbed the kids, cleaned house & purchased new books for the children. To quote Alloma "She made herself seem like Mary Poppins". This beast of a woman knew exactly how to fool everyone! I feel so sorry for these poor children and what they endured. Hope the beast rots in h*ll.
