Child found dead by physical abuse, forced exercises by grandparents

Police said a 12-year-old boy, James Alex Hurley, in Montana was found dead after physical abuse and forced exercises by grandparents and uncle accused of torturing him to death.

The grandparents and uncle of a 12-year-old boy in the state of Montana have been charged in connection with their grandparents, James Sasser Jr. and Patricia Batts, during the last two years of death after police said they found evidence that the child was tortured.

James Alex Hurley was found dead inside a living room he had been living with his grandparents and uncle for the past two years after his mother sent him to Montana to live with his father. James’s mother lives in Texas. James’s father died in 2018, so he ended up living with his grandparents and uncle, according to the complaint.

The report says that the couple’s children, including their 14-year-old son, who was James’s uncle, are being charged as minors in the case.

Montana boy dead grandparents abuse torture James Alex Hurley

Police investigators told the court in their documents that the videos found by the police show a pattern of abuse that included forced exercise and physical abuse.

Detectives found videos about two years ago in which James “seemed to be a healthy and well-fed child,” according to court documents. At the time of his death, detectives said James “seemed emaciated,” according to the documents.

“I believe that torture and systematic beatings are perpetrated on the victim in this case that led to his death,” Bjorn Boyer, deputy county attorney for the Gallatin County Prosecutor’s Office, told CNN.

According to court documents, the three defendants have been charged with a charge of deliberate manslaughter.

A fourth person, Gage Roush, 18, was also arrested for serious assault on a minor. The court documents allege that Roush, a family friend, could be seen in a video of a cell phone hitting Hurley with a shovel.

Batts told detectives that he found James’s body on February 3 in the living room, according to the complaint.

James’s body was taken to the Montana State Crime Laboratory for an autopsy on February 4; He said his preliminary cause of death was blunt force trauma to the back of his head, according to the complaint. Toxicology reports are pending.

Detectives confiscated cell phones from uncle and grandparents and put together a timeline based on abuse videos dating from December 2019.

Cases of abuse included James being forced to exercise, jumps and squats on the wall, along with standing in front of a fan with no more clothes than his underwear, according to the complaint. The videos reviewed by the detectives also showed the suspects spraying James in the face with an unknown substance that burned and suffocated him, according to the complaint.

During the search of the house, detectives found that the food in the house was locked up, so James had no access to it, the complaint said.

Thieves rob a man with a prosthetic leg during his physical therapy walk News headlines

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Michael Williams lost part of his right leg last June and is still struggling to get used to walking with a prosthetic leg.

“My therapist told me that I had to start walking more so I could get used to wearing the leg prosthesis and I feel it is part of me,” he said. “So I can stop fighting.”

So, Williams took a walk Wednesday in the 1400 block of Carr Street. During his walk, he became a victim of different types.

“I only feel these hands on my ear. They are just taking the plugs off my ears and they tell me to give me everything you have,” he said.

The former retail store manager, who now raises $ 950 a month from disability, says he raised his hands after noticing that the suspect had a gun.

“I knew the gun was real when I heard the safety click,” he recalled.

Police say the thieves took Williams’ wallet, phone, watch and headphones.

“They were young. You can say it in their own voice,” said Williams. “I didn’t see any faces. They were behind me all the time.”

Williams is not sure that the St. Louis police will catch the two people who robbed him, but he believes the thieves have wasted time.

“I don’t understand who would rob a physically disabled person. They have a wallet. There’s really nothing they can do about it,” he said.
