The boy weighed 38 pounds when he was removed from the home and taken to a local hospital for treatment for malnutrition and hypothermia. He was found with multiple bruises to his body and face, as well as a second degree burn on his back caused by his stepmother allegedly putting a sock filled with hot rice on it. Detectives believe the abuse began late last year. ***more at link*** Makes me sick. He was already taken away from his "mother" for abuse, now his stepmother and father treat him like this. This baby didn't have any adult allies. Horrible.
