    police officers found a malnourished 15-year-old boy chained to a bed railing at his parents' home Tuesday, police officials said. The boy's father, James Osborne III, and his stepmother, Christie Osborne, were charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect and were in jail as of yesterday afternoon, Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen said.

    The teen ''was in a very poor condition,'' Bowen said. James Osborne ''said it's been going on for several months. He knew it was wrong.''

    Bowen said his officers responded to a call from the Tennessee Department of Children's Services about an alleged child-abuse case and went to the home on Wilson Avenue to check it out.

    As they entered, they saw the 15-year-old, who weighed 49 pounds, and his three siblings, who appeared to be fine, Bowen said. All four children have been placed in DCS custody.

    ''We found the child in an emaciated state,'' said Andrea Turner of DCS. ''He has lost a significant muscle weight.''

    Police declined to release the teen's identity.

    49 pounds? My four year old weighs 45! That is horrible!!! And yet there were 3 other children that were just fine. I don't get how parents can think that one child is so "bad" that they must be punished in such dramatic ways, yet they take "good" care of other children in the house. Like the girl in the closet in Dallas, and many other cases. I just don't get it.

    I decided to look my big brother up to show my husband and I came across your comment... I’m one of the 3 younger siblings. It angers me to see that people think we got treat like the good kids. My siblings and I were beaten, raped, and barely fed. If one of us messed up we all got in trouble for it. I will be doing a news story here soon with B.A.C.A. to share my story and to keep my big brothers memory going.
