Until he escaped and got help from the owner of a nearby gym. Poor kid.

I am so curious, but so not reading that. I KNOW it will keep me awake if I do.
Dubfam, you'll be happy to know that the boy is in stable condition and that the police already have in custody two of the three people who beat him. So it is a terrible story, but at least it's not going to get any worse.
The more you read about it, the more you are appalled at how people can be.

Now 4 adults have been arrested. One being the next door neighbor who knew all about it, went over there to watch football and hang out. A youth football coach. The female owner of the house was a mother of 4, a Girl Scout leader. WTH is wrong with people?

I honestly don't know what is wrong with people. I think some people have lost all capacity for simple human goodness.

What's really awful about the story, to me, is that he was sent to a group home based on abuse from his parents..... escaped from the group home ...... only to be abused by a different set of people. All I can say is GOOD FOR HIM for managing to escape (again), and I fervently hope that he gets some love and support in his life. What a terrible story.
What a horrible story

That is just so pitiful. Why abuse a child, or a teen?

Those sad sad people. My heart goes out to this teen.

Good for him for escaping.
I saw this story on Nancy Grace. That is so awful
