Adopted Son’s Body Found Dead In A Washing Machine
A court document revealed that the boy’s adoptive father, Jermaine Thomas, intentionally caused the death of the 7-year-old boy. He submerged the boy’s nose and mouth underwater and hit him with an unknown object. Additionally, the adoptive mother intentionally caused bodily injury to their adopted son.
When the deputies arrived at their home, they found the boy inside a washing machine. His arms and legs were warm but his body was cold when they pulled him from the washing machine. The deputies also noticed that the 7-year-old boy had bruises, blood around his nose, and a large bump on his forehead over the right eye.
They also added that the boy’s clothing smelled like urine which comes from his body. Upon pulling his pants to his knees, they discovered a lot of bruises on his upper legs, according to a report published in KHOU 11.
