    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.

    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.

    I'd ALMOST believe a little girl likes to play in a box, but not this box. Like a big lush box with toys and blankets. We used to call them forts.

    This... this is unacceptable and disgusting and sad...

    Yeah I loved playing with boxes when I was little, too. We got a new water heater once and I played in there until it fell apart. But my boxes sure as heck never had locks!

    This is so abhorrent! And like really what kind of parent is going to be like okay kid you can sleep in there but we're locking it? Nope.

    It doesn't seem likely those people are ALL "mandatory reporters", a category that includes teachers, medical workers, CPS, CASA volunteers, Child care workers, etc.

    As sad as this case is, I don't see that it's completely different from keeping a child in a crib for long periods of time, which is something a lot of lazy parents do.

    I'll be interested in hearing who was the "ring leader" in keeping this child locked in the box - I'd guess it's the partner of a biological parent, who isn't a bioparent of the child.

    I tried to look at their house on Google maps, and let me tell you, Google does NOT know what to do with their address. North Judson has the very oddest way of naming streets, W 800 N, for example, and that doesn't exist. "Leslie Street" is what it reverts to. ???
