Johnathan Ramsey Death

A young boy was fed only bread and water as punishment for bad behavior.

Dallas Police say 11-year-old Johnathan Ramsey‘s weight fell from 90 to 60 pounds after being locked in his bedroom and only fed water and bread by his dad and stepmom, according to The Daily Mail.

Because of his parents’ cruel diet, the boy was unable to walk and eventually died. His dad, Aaron Ramsey, 34, found the boy unresponsive on his bedroom floor.

The parents were questioned by police, and Johnathan’s body was eventually found wrapped in a sleeping bag in an abandoned storm shelter.

Now Aaron and his wife, Elizabeth Ramsey, 31, are being charged with first-degree felony of injury to a child.

Police were notified after Johnathan’s worried grandfather called. Johnathan’s mother, who lives in New Mexico, also tried getting in touch with her son, but she was always told by Aaron that the boy was unavailable to talk.

Such a sad story!
