Have you heard about the adopted “Schindley children”?
Tyler and Krista Schindley were finally arrested after the 10-year-old adopted boy ran away to look for food. He weighed just 36 pounds.
The ten-year-old adopted boy escaped to look for food. A neighbor saw him and intervened. The child begged the police not to send him back home. He was then taken to a nearby hospital and is said to be doing better. Tyler and Krista Schindley, the adoptive parents stand accused of locking the boy inside a bedroom for extended periods of time with no light, no food, no clothing, no toilet paper, and no water. Other children have been placed back in the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services who sold them through the adoption agency to begin with.
Tyler and Krista Schindley are charged with false imprisonment, criminal attempt to commit a felony, two battery charges, and three cruelty to children charges.
The house the adopted boy escaped.
The Griffin Georgia District Attorney, Marie Broader says, “This child was, simply put, being starved to death, and it is tragic”. She went on to say that her own 9-year-old child weighs 76 pounds. “I truly believe that if he had not gotten out of that home, this would be a very different case,” she said.
The adopted boy is being treated for malnutrition, a low heart rate, a dental injury, and other injuries.
In a local news cast, a neighbor says that there is a 14-year-old boy that may be missing from the home. Reports say the investigation is ongoing.
