The agency has listed 10 Houstonians as its most wanted child abuse fugitives. Among those wanted include Phung Kim Tran, a 42-year-old woman who allegedly beat a child with her hands and bamboo sticks "to get demons out" after the child ate meat "which caused him to have the devil inside him," Crime Stoppers said.

"She witnessed both this defendant and her father, the co-defendant in this case, beating her younger sibling with their hands, with a bamboo stick and also using chopsticks to poke the child's feet," said Darby...
A deputy responding to an alarm call, reportedly witnessed through a second story window a man yelling and striking down. A child's cry could also be heard.
When investigators entered the home, they found the three-year-old with serious injuries to his face and head. Authorities say he was with his mother in the bathtub. She reportedly said she was trying to wash the demons out of him.
Both the three-year-old and his six-year-old sister have been placed in CPS custody.

The child, whose name was not released, was transported to a Houston hospital for treatment of skull fractures and was expected to survive.
The Chronicle reports Tran told relatives Sunday night, who visited him in jail, that he was just knocking the demon out of the boy.
A neighbor, Abdul Badat, says Tran last week threw his furniture into the yard because he thought the items were "evil."

"Everything started on Wednesday when he got some kind of statue. He brought it home," said Badat. "Immediately, he found it had some kind of demon inside."
But neighbors say Tran buried the statue at a nearby Buddhist temple and received instructions on how to rid his house of ghosts. On Friday, neighbors notice the strange behavior continuing when Tran began throwing all of his furnishings out of his home through a second story window.

The Vietnam Buddhist Center in Sugar Land also condemns Tran's actions.
They wanted to make it clear that Buddhism does not teach anything about removing demons, especially at the painful expense of another human's life.
"I think he has a problem with his mind. I don't think it has got anything to do with religion," Lien Tu of the Vietnam Buddhist Center said.
