Missing Boy Who Was Found In His Father's Basement Reveals Horrific & SHOCKING Abuse He Suffered At His Father's Hands!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooWacky, Tacky & TrueLegal MattersSad SadFamilyNews

So remember when Nancy Grace told a father whose son was missing that they found him… in his own basement (above)?

Well, this story just got A LOT worse.

The Department of Human Services has filed a petition against the father, Charles Bothuell IV, and the step-mother, Monique Dillard-Bothuell, for EXTREME abuse against their 12-year-old son, Charles "Charlie" Bothuell V.

The petition details the horrific environment that Charlie lived in which included an intense workout routine that he had to wake up at 5am to complete within one hour, or he'd have to start again and if he still failed to complete it, he was punished by being beaten with a PVC pipe.

What makes it worse is that when Charlie was found, it seems:

'he was observed to have a half circular scar on his chest that he reports being a result of his father driving a PVC pipe into his chest.'

UGH. Thankfully the alleged PVC pipe was found in the home, with blood on it (!!!), so that can be used as evidence against them.

However, the attorney for Charlie's stepmother is alleging that what they were doing was all completely and totally LEGAL.

He said:

'There will be evidence of corporal punishment but they're not denying that and corporal punishment is legal.'

UGH. UGH. UGH. Seriously though?

Not only were they disciplining Charlie like this, but he also stated in an interview that his stepmother threatened to kill him on multiple occasions.

Reportedly she said:

'[She] will f***ing murder me. [She said] unlike you, I know where the sharp knives are. I can make you disappear.'

This is just sickening. Some people really truly should NOT be parents.

We sincerely hope that justice is served in this case and that Charlie and the couple's other children, who are four and 10-months old, get sent to a home filled with love and light.

    Another horrific part of this story is Nancy Grace believed him at first and is now backtracking BIG TIME. And she's on the news as someone we should trust? Let's write a story about her big mouth and how wrong she can be.

    Damn shocking & disgusting! But let's hope that American justice isn't as weak and watered down as our Canadian Justice! Hell, a guy here decapitated and ATE a young man on a greyhound bus…he is already OUT after a couple of years! Let's hope this guy doesn't get away with it too!

    To me his reaction in this vid is way off, imo. Seems to me that a person with a missing child who received such news would firstly be overcome with visible overwhelming relief and joy just that the child was ALIVE. This didn't happen here. Secondly, a parent would have taken off the mic and said, "I have to go right now and see my son." That didn't happen either. I thought he was acting from the get go because of these two missing things.

    I hope that they get placed in a loving home TOGETHER, not separated.

    You can take the black out of the jungle but you can't take the jungle out of the black.

    @Wildwitch omg that story is insane! Chinese will eat anything though. As for the parents in this story-Why do people have children and pets just to torture them like this? Maybe everyone should be getting tested for mental illness and anger problems before they're allowed to be in charge of another life.

    Re: Mad Dog – yea, you are a mad dog… with that pathetic, ignorant statement of yours.

    Re: haro – Just as well,"MadDog". since it has been the white man responsible for the majority of the maiming, raping, pillaging, mass murder, not to mention genocide and/or the subjugating of entire races into slavery. I'll take the jungle any day.
