Terry Smith (43) and his wife Victoria Smith (42) from Elsberry, Missouri have been charged with endangering the life of a child after it was found that they kept their 6 year old autistic son in a filthy cage in the basement.

Authorities began investigating the Smiths after an anonymous tip-off was made to the Missouri Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline in 2010, when the boy was 6 years old. Authorities removed the boy and his 6 siblings from the couple, who were living in O’Fallon at the time, but were returned on a later date. The couple were then released because of “personal recognisance”. What the fuck is “personal recognisance”? Is that like if you say “Oh, I’m not a criminal, so let me go” and they just do it?

Now to the cage incident. When the police rocked up to the Elsberry home after a call from Grandma, they found the boy naked, in a small crib made of wood, lying in his own filth. He wasn’t wearing any clothes. Officers described the smell of piss as almost unbearable and that they could smell it when they came down the stairs. The crib’s dimensions measured at 3 ft (0.9m) tall, 3 ft (0.9m) wide and 6 ft (1.8m) long. Although the crib was small and filthy, it contained some toys and its occupant seemed contented. The crib had a plywood top and was held together with nice sharp cable ties and eye-gouging ockey straps.

This looks safe and stable…not!

Grandma was watching the other kids at the time of the raid, while the parents were out shopping. The other kids range from 11 months to 8 years old. Police stated that the rest of the house was filthy too, not just the cage. The doorknobs on the other kids’ bedroom doors had been installed backwards, so that the parents could get in but the kids couldn’t get out. The mother would lock the kids in their rooms if they got rowdy.

The parents told police that they had to build a cage because it was the only way to stop the kid from hurting himself or other people, and that the reason why the kid was nekkid was because they were afraid he’d accidentally hang himself if he wore clothing. They also said they tried their best to keep the cage clean. Here’s a hint: if the whole fucking basement reeks of piss, that’s not clean! I clean out my sister’s rat cage out when I can smell even the slightest hint of ratty odour, I can’t imagine letting anything get as bad as reeking of piss. The boy was originally put in the cage at night, but this extended to daytime use as well, when he became more difficult to control. A social worker pleaded with the family to put the boy in a group home, where he could get all the meds and help he needed. Mr Smith told officials that he knew the situation wasn’t ideal, but his goal was to try and keep the family together for as long as possible. I feel for you, Mr Smith. It wouldn’t be easy to give a child up, no matter how difficult they were. But there comes a time when your kid’s needs outweigh what you want. The cage may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but it wasn’t a magical solution and it came with its own set of problems such as hygiene and safety.

The parents have been charged with felony endangering the welfare of a child and bail has been set at $2500 for each of them.  If they’re convicted, the parents may be facing up to 7 years in prison. The boy was taken into protective custody but will be released back to his parents, who will hopefully put him in the group home that he needs.

I found this story kinda sad. I just couldn’t feel angry about the parents. Perhaps I’m getting soft, but from what I can gather, the parents were having a hard time dealing with their severely autistic son, as well as six other children who needed love and attention too. I can see why they thought a cage was a magical solution. The article did say that the boy seemed contented in there, and my limited knowledge of kids with autism tells me that they easily become overwhelmed by too much space (ie. playgrounds or even a loungeroom) so confinement might have been soothing to him. The father was trying to keep it all together, but he could see that the problems were just too big and that he was too proud to accept help. I just find that really sad 🙁 No one was killed, and hopefully the little boy will get the help he needs, and that his family will be willing to let him go to that help.

Justification: Terry Smith told police the situation with his son was not ideal, but his goal was to keep the family together for as long as possible before sending the boy to a group home



Another Burnout……Another Group of Abandoned Babies


Mother of abused Tulsa children wants custody, files for divorce two days after incident

Oklahoma dad arrested after toddler daughter found locked in dog cage


It seems that most of these stories start the same these days. Take a burnout breeder, add a frequently abused substance and the result is children who get neglected or hurt.

Straight from Tulsa, Oklahoma, we bring you 47-year-old William (Willy Dipshit) Lewallen.  Willy Dipshit was in charge of diaper duty while the children’s mother was working.  He must have failed to take care of the children, seeing as the neighbors called the police because a 4-year-old child was naked, crying and locked outside. I have been to Oklahoma in November for training and it was exceedingly cold.   This poor baby was most likely freezing.

Thankfully the neighbors spotted the child and wrapped him in a blanket until the authorities arrived. Once one the scene, they also found a second child, 18 Months (16 Months according to conflicting reports) old locked in a dog cage and covered in feces.  There was a third child, 3 years old, naked and unattended in another bedroom. The police found Willy Dipshit sleeping in a bedroom in such a drunken/drug induced stupor that he never heard the children nor did he hear the police bust down the door. Willy Dipshit was arrested on a child neglect complaint while the three children were placed into the custody of DHS.  Unfortunately the mother, who was working at the time, returned home as the police were leaving the premises. Kudos to the Mom though.  This is a rare occasion where she is not sticking with her man. According to reports she has filed for divorce from Willy Dipshit and is currently fighting for custody.

James Tapke takes a joke to a new level of “DUH”

Ohioman put daughter in cage, threatened to electrocute her

Police: Father locked daughter in cage, photos made it to Facebook

Threat to electrify dog cage with girl inside just ‘horseplay’

Police: Father bound daughter with duct tape, locked her in dog cage


That chick magnet right there… Yeah… The one with the really sweet mullet, that’s 41-year-old James Tapke.  If hair was brains, this mulletastic fucktard wouldn’t be gracing the pages off, but he is.

The Mullet King “allegedly” put his 13-year-old daughter in a dog cage after binding her hands and her feet with duct tape as a form of punishment.  After she escaped, he put her back in the cage and threatened to electrocute her with an electrical jump pack if she escaped again.  Well, alrighty then.

Tapke’s arrest came after concerned parents saw pictures of the girl in the cage his son posted on Facebook.  Good o’l Facebook.  Taking down child abusing asshats one at a time.

The police report states that, while the girl was in the cage, Tapke dropped water on her face. The girl was in the cage for roughly 20 minutes before her brother let her out.  Tapke bound her and put her back in the cage.  He then told his son to go to the garbage and retrieve the electrical jump pack so he could electrify the cage.

The child was eventually let out of the cage and the duct tape removed by her grandmother.

Tapke’s attorney is claiming that is was all horseplay; A joke.  Really?  A fucking joke?

Tapke is being charged with one count of child endangerment.  He has been released on $50,000 bond. The children are staying with their grandparents.

How long until this motherfucker is in a cage?  Not soon enough, I suppose.

Thanks go to everyone who sent this one in.

"Dirty Little Secrets"

Gloucester child abuse case leads to the discovery of a child’s body

Child found starving, parents charged

Murder charges levied against parents of caged, starved girl

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.

But Wait!

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.
