On December 29th paramedics arrived to the home of Courtney Jones and Billy Joe Williams, both 21, to find an unresponsive 1-year-old, Hunter Jones.
Little Hunter’s body had several bruises in various stages of healing; some appeared to be three to six weeks old. An autopsy on his little body listed his cause of death as undetermined, further examination and testing will be done by the State Medical Examiner.
Courtney Jones, Hunter’s Mother, and her boyfriend Billy Joe Williams have both been charged two counts of felony child abuse. The baby beaters’ bonds have been set at $100,000.
Also in the home was Hunter’s 2-year-old sister and she was sporting an untreated broken ankle. She has been placed in foster care.
The Humphries County DHS was investigating complaints of child abuse against Hunter, before his death.
Just so we are all clear there were complaints of abuse against this baby, he dies covered in bruises and NO ONE has been charged with his death. What in the shit do they think happened to the ABUSED baby? Was he is a cage fight? Did his sister, with the broken ankle, beat him lifeless? It’s a mystery wrapped in an enigma…ummm not so much!
Hunter was laid to rest Wednesday January 4th.
