First, I am going to start this out by thanking the many readers who sent in tips on this story.
On Thursday, April 28th, the Gloucester Sheriff’s Department, looking into a number of burglaries, paid a visit to the blue-and-white-single-wide mobile home of Brian Gore (29), Shannon Gore (25), their 1-month-old son and their “dirty little secret“. From the outside the house was well maintained, neatly trimmed grass, pink flowers blooming and even an American flag on the porch, but as I am sure you have guessed looks can be deceiving.
Upon entering the house deputies would discover a severely malnourished 5 or 6-year-old little girl, naked, covered in feces and being caged in a crib that was topped by wood to prevent her from getting out and a perfectly healthy, well taken care of 1-month-old baby boy. There are of course the differing stories, but dad is placing all the blame on mom, telling the police that no one knows the little girl exists. Brian said she was born in the home in December 2008, but that would make her going on 3-years-old not 5 or 6-years-old…. hmmm. Anyhow, according to daddy dearest she has been in the crib almost since birth, she has Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and has never seen a doctor. Ummmm, what in the fucking shit?? Did I mention her “diet” or lack there of?? No. Well, let me enlighten you… pop tart for breakfast and dinner, also with dinner… maybe a sandwich and some milk, she was so fucking hungry she was reportedly eating flakes of skin that were falling off her body….. gag! I am not sure about you guys but the more I type this the angrier I become, she was the dirty little family secret locked away in a room and left to starve in her own shit and eating her dead skin for nourishment, I am sick over it. The doctors, at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughter, said that had she not been discovered when she was, that by this week she’d be dead. Seriously… this is like some sort of demented horror movie, I am thoroughly disgusted.
Good new is the little girl and her brother are both in protective custody.
Normally the post would end there, but it gets more interesting and worse. I betcha didn’t think it could get worse, well it does. Police acting on a tip from one of the dynamic duo, my guess Brian, obtained a warrant to search the Gore’s property. While digging around near a free standing shed, much to their disgust, they find a body of another small child. Do we have another “dirty little secret”? My guess, it was only a matter of time befor the baby ended up in a crib with a piece of wood nailed to the top of it and the starved little girl would be in the back yard near the shed. These are some freakin warped individuals, right here. Police believe, this body and the incident surrounding it dates back to 2007.
So what started out as routine burglary investigation, resulted it a child’s life( possibly two) being saved, the discovery of a child’s body, child abuse and murder charges. Well the “dirty little secret” has been revealed and these two wastes of oxygen have been outed. I hope these kids get justice.
I am looking to all the tipsters and readers to keep their eyes on this one and continue to send in or post updates in the comments.
