    [h=1]Mom, Grandparents, Nearly Starved Boy To Death: Cops[/h]
    GREENVILLE, Pa. (AP) -- A 7-year-old boy was nearly starved to death, suffered regular beatings and resorted to catching insects to eat during brief times he was allowed outside, police said in charging his mother and grandparents with assault and other offenses

    Child welfare workers, responding to a complaint, found the child looking like a human skeleton in home in Greenville, in western Pennsylvania, last month, The Sharon Herald reported (HTTP://BIT.LY/1MZW530 ) Saturday.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/20/grandparents-starve-boy_n_5603514.html?utm_hp_ref=crime

    The complaint alleges that Radar took the boy out of school in August of 2013. The only time the boy was allowed of the house was to sit on the back porch, where he told investigators that he would often catch bugs and eat them.

    The boy's siblings told investigators that he was only fed small portions of of tuna fish and eggs, and that he was frequently beaten with a belt. They say he was usually beaten when he would try to sneak peanut butter and bread to eat without permission.

    The siblings say the only time the boy was able to bathe was when he was being punished and was drenched with ice-cold water.

    The boy's name has not been released and a search using mom's name found no threads for this case yet. If one exists please merge when time allows. Thanks

    &#8220;The child was starved. (The victim) is the worst case of medical neglect that I have ever seen in my seven years as a pediatrician,&#8221; Wolford stated. &#8220;Multiple physicians at Children&#8217;s Hospital are in agreement with this assessment. There is not one physician at Children&#8217;s who disagree with this assessment.&#8221;

    http://www.sharonherald.com/local/x611418143/Boy-was-being-starved

    A woman walking her dog tipped off Mercer County authorities to &#8220;a human skeleton&#8221; she saw outside a house along North Second Street in Greenville.


    What investigators found was a 7-year-old boy so starved of food, he was reduced to scavenging for insects, and his weight had dwindled to 20 pounds, the lead investigator told the Tribune-Review.


    &#8220;He looked like a Holocaust victim,&#8221; said Mercer County Detective John J. Piatek, who specializes in child abuse cases. &#8220;He had been beaten with a belt every time he tried to get food. He had three abscessed teeth and weighed 20 pounds when he was taken to Children's Hospital. The starvation could have killed him. The abscessed teeth could have killed him.&#8221;

    'The most important medicine used to treat him at the hospital was food. He was within a month of having a major cardiac event that he probably would not have recovered from,' Dr. Wolford said.


    'It is impossible to me that this severe neglect and active abuse was not visible. He was being starved in his own home around others of normal weight,' she continued.

    poor baby. Seems he was the scapegoat for some reason. I will never understand. I am reminded of the cases of "sunny" Gore and Christian Choate (rest Christian, in peace sweety)

    The boy&#8217;s mother, Mary C. Rader, 28, and her parents, Dennis C. Beighley, 58, and Deana C. Beighley, 47 &#8212; all of whom lived together &#8212; have each have been charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault, unlawful restraint of a minor, false imprisonment, child endangerment and criminal conspiracy, reports the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
    Piatek stated that their sole motive for their treatment of the child was that they disliked him.

    The boy is in foster care. His sisters &#8212; 11 and 14 &#8212; and a brother, 9, have been placed in different homes and are healthy, authorities said.

    The older brother was underweight &#8220;but not nearly as bad&#8221; as his sibling, who was rushed last month to Greenville's UPMC Horizon Hospital and transferred to Children's Hospital in Lawrenceville, Piatek said.

    &#8220;I went to see him,&#8221; said paternal grandmother, Debra Rader of Mercer County. &#8220;It was horrible. I'm sorry, but you wouldn't do to a dog what they did to that beautiful boy. They should starve them, and see if they like it.&#8221;

    During a week's stay, he gained a pound a day and has since gained 24 pounds.

    Debra Rader's son, Jimmy, is divorced from Mary Rader. Debra Rader said she twice reported her ex-daughter-in-law to Mercer County authorities.

    Told school to starve him too so he would only maybe get one meal a day, assuming school lunch? I pray he got lunch. I am pretty sure schools feed kids who show up without sack lunches and investigate if it continues right?

    Horrible hateful spiteful vile evil actions from a person I cannot begin to fathom.

    Pardon my tongue, but WT-f'ing-F???

    The mother and grandparents are charged with:
    -Aggravated assault
    -Aggravated assault of a child under the age of 13
    -False imprisonment
    -Unlawful restraint of a child
    -Endangering the welfare of a child
    -Conspiracy

    Those are all "bad" charges, but does mere "Aggravated Assault" cover a lifetime of torture and abuse?

    Many people are charged with that for a single incident (i.e. mugging, rape, robbery, etc). This is a little more extensive than that.

    WHY DIDN'T THEY PUT THE POOR KID UP FOR ADOPTION?
    It might be unpleasant for a kid to be waiting for an adoption, but at least THEY ARE FED.

    I really detest these stories. They stress me out. It's so cruel. Helpless children deserve our attention more than anyone else, JMO.

    St. John ruled that the two women should stand trial on attempted first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit the crime, and conspiracy to commit third-degree murder.

    According to St. John’s motion, Rader and her mother will also stand trial on charges of aggravated assault and conspiracy “by intentionally depriving (the victim) of food and/or beating him after he was found with food,” and endangering the welfare of children and conspiracy “by failing to provide food to (the victim) in his home for over one year.”

    So step grandpa gets a bye because while he lived there and knew the situation the child was not deemed n his "care and control" Glad to see attempted murder charges stand against mom and grandmom
