Porky and Petunia Pig (aka Chad G. Chritton, 40, and Melinda J. Drabek-Chritton, 42) up there obviously haven’t missed any meals lately. That could be because they were eating their portions and also the food that should have gone to their 15-year-old daughter. Their daughter was found wandering in pajamas, barefoot, malnourished and injured, only a few scant blocks from the prison she called home. Did I say malnourished? What I meant to say was she was starved almost to the point of death – she weighed only 70 pounds. Let that sink in for a minute….15 years old, and only seventy pounds. I have a ten-year-old who weighs more than that, and she’s kinda on the thin side, although she is average in height for her age. An average sized fifteen-year-old (say, 5′ 2″) should weigh at least ninety pounds. Looking at the pics of the breeder and step-monster, maybe she was just so sick at her stomach from having to look at them over the dinner table that she couldn’t keep her food down. Looking at their fleshy jowls made me urp a bit of my breakfast.
But I digress…no, her painfully thin frame was not a result of anything as harmless as involuntary reaction to hideousness. It was a result of those two selfish, nasty pigs refusing to feed her. Well, to be fair, they did feed her sometimes…she was forced to drink her own urine and eat her own excrement more than once. How she managed to produce any of either on the scraps she was able to find in the garbage or on the floor is another mystery that may never be solved – kind of like the Bermuda triangle, but in reverse: instead of things inexplicably disappearing off the face of the earth, her body managed to produce waste products from thin air.
This child was forced to live in the basement, and an alarm was installed that would sound if she attempted to go upstairs. She was only let out that day because the step-sow wanted her to clean something. The girl said she had been strangled previously, but the reason she left the house that day was because the moo-monster threatened to throw her down the stairs. Her starvation is so extreme that doctors say there is a good chance she could die, because her body is going through “re-feeding syndrome” – a condition where her body rejects the introduction of food after a long period starvation. A doctor who examined her characterized the abuse as “serial torture with prolonged exposure to definite starvation.” Ya think?
There were apparently two other children in the household, both belonging to the she-beast. According to neighbors, they were both healthy and well-cared for. Anyone surprised by that? Yeah, me neither.
Both animals are pleading not guilty to the charges (of course), and have suggested that there are medical reasons for the girl’s condition. Yeah, the medical term is extreme starvation, eejits! I wonder how they are going to provide a medical explanation for the strangulation? Perhaps externally initiated asthma attacks? No, wait…I know! She has a mental disorder and strangled herself to get her sperm donor and step-slut in trouble. Yeah, that must be it.
I wonder where her bio-mother is, and why she has been allowed to live in such deplorable conditions for so long. I really, REALLY hope she simply didn’t know what was happening, and that this child has a safe place to go when – if – she recovers.
There are more details, but I just can’t stomach any more of this right now. And I hope the two bovine breeders have their stomachs removed with rusty spoons by their cell mates. Or something worse. Hopefully something much worse.
