    This may scar those poor boys for life. How can they ever feel safe? I hope they are able to transition into a loving home in time. Wishing the best for them.

    You murder a child, badly injure another or others, traumatize them for life in the most horrific of circumstances and then you just get on with your life?! And their mother - how does one get so dissociated to get up in the morning have a life, get married apparently and post to social media while your children which are supposed to be your whole heart are suffering to that extreme- it’s so evil - and then that no one raised the alarm sooner :(

    I can’t get my head around how awful this story is

    I'll never understand this kind of behavior. Complete sociopaths.

    I read one article that mentioned the boys not being in school since May 2020 & there were photos of truant notices from 2019 & 2020, that had been sent to the mother. Supposedly CPS tried to make contact, but was unsuccessful. Covid-19 made it easy for at risk youth to slip through the cracks. IMHO the neighbors should have been more diligent.

    "But I had no idea there was a skeleton in the house," said neighbor Trevor Thompson. "I never saw those other kids."

    The Harris County Sheriff's Office says the rent for the apartment at at the CityParc II at West Oaks Apartments kept getting paid, but the mother hasn't been at the apartment in months. The 15-year-old was relying on his neighbor, Erica Chapman, who started giving him food six months ago.

    "He wouldn't eat anything you made," she said. "You had to buy a salad that was closed from the store, or a pizza. Fruits. It still had to be in bag."

    Thompson was also feeding him. He once got a glance inside the apartment.

    "The house is empty. It's not furnished. It's just trash. Debris from chips, pizza boxes," he said.

    “Without electricity, the 15-year-old asked Thompson to charge a cellphone shortly before calling 911 on Sunday.”

    So for the last 6 months, at least 2 adult residents, knew the conditions those kids were living in! Really… <modsnip>?

    Here’s a link to the article Kids living in squalor with their dead brother relied on neighbors for food

    <modnsip: Quoted post was removed>

    I have a few thoughts about how some of this may have progressed and why immediate arrests were not made - but I'm fairly certain I couldn't articulate them clearly here so I'm just gonna sit on all of the bewildering ideas I have floating thru my head at the moment. I wish these kids had been helped a long time ago ... but I'm glad that the surviving ones do finally have that now.

    a life of quiet desperation- he had to ask someone to charge a telephone....how long did it take him to get that courage.
    he didn't even know he could ask somebody to call on his behalf!
    This breaks my heart!
    I really want him to know he is a hero, I hope someone tells him that soon.

    Has Coulter got social media accounts?
    I want to check out his tattoos.

    Big man killing an 8 yr old... prison will not be good for him, I console myself, hopefully.

    Yes food the first thing I saw , sick sick , sick just plain evil, they knew exactly what they were doing , those poor little boys , I would feed and mother them like they were my own , I hope they get a new mom that will be a Mother quickly so they know there are good people , I imagine they they don't believe something like that even exists now. :(

    But truly, at the end of the day, the basic responsibility lies with the mother. I would really not put blame on the neighbors, etc. JMOO!

    Where is the father of these children?
    No aunts, uncles, grandparents - someone that thought to actually go see if they could find them. Not just looking at pictures on FB.
    :(

    I totally agree. As seen on his insta, he obviously smokes weed, but I definitely think they were on hard drugs of some sort. I have no evidence, so it's just my opinion based on his demeanor and his extremely long, gross pinky nail. Also, his face appears much more bloated in posts from February - present vs. his posts from September 2020. But that could just be from all of the steak and shrimp they were eating. :mad:

    I am wondering when they murdered the poor little child. He didn't post anything on instagram for a few months, then in mid February he debuted his classy face and neck tats when he started posting videos of himself daily, sometimes multiple times a day. I am thinking they murdered the victim sometime around February.

    I am so relieved arrests were made and these disgusting people were actually still around to arrest. I've followed 100s of cases in my years here, I consider myself pretty jaded in some ways because little shocks me anymore. But this case here, I cannot stop thinking about it.

    Not at all shocked that the perps were at the library looking up articles about themselves. :mad: I can't bring myself to creep their socials yet. I know it will make me even more angry

    My heart is just devastated for these kids. The horror of being left to starve with their sibling's corpse. Mom and bf off living their lives like the kids just ceased to exist. I will never comprehend evil such as that.
