Jessica Dutro has been charged with murder after beating her son to death because she thought he was gay. Facebook messages from Jessica to her boyfriend, Brian Canady, revealed the couple’s plan to ‘work on’ the child’s allegedly gay behavior. How horrible.

Zachary Dutro-Boggess, 4, was violently beaten to death for days by his mother and her boyfriend solely because they thought he would grow up to be gay.

Boy Beaten To Death For ‘Talking’ Gay

On Wednesday, March 26, prosecutors told a packed Oregon courtroom that Jessica Dutro, 25, murdered her son solely because she thought he was gay.

According to Facebook messages Jessica wrote to her 25-year-old boyfriend, Brian Canady, she thought that her 4-year-old son, Zachary Dutro-Boggess, was gay. In the message, she claims that her son walks and talks like a gay person, and mentions that Brian will have to “work on” her son to get him to stop acting gay.

When Zachary collapsed at the Good Neighbor Center, a homeless shelter the family was living at in August 2012, Jessica called 911 immediately and reported that her son was unconscious. Little Zachary was rushed to a Portland hospital where doctors diagnosed him with blunt force trauma to the abdomen. The poor little boy was put on life support for two days before the ventilator was removed, which resulted in his death.

Mom Who Killed Son For Being Gay: Boyfriend Will Testify Against Her

Zachary’s death certificate states that he died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen and a delay in medical treatment.

Jessica Beat All 3 Of Her Children

An audio interview with Jessica’s daughter 7-year-old daughter was played in court, and it revealed the little girl admitting that Jessica and Brian hit her brother until he “got dead.”

Prosecutors claim that Jessica often beat all three of her children, but Zachary got it “the worst.”

After finding the messages on Jessica’s Facebook, her computer was rigorously searched for more evidence.

On the very same day that her son was removed from life support, Jessica searched for things like “anger management” and “parenting classes” on her web browser.

This story is very upsetting. The reasoning behind is is so ridiculous. Should someone kill HER because she’s an OBESE woman? I also do not support the LGBTQ community due to my “Spiritual, Multi-Faith, Open 3rd Eye, Home-Based Christian” beliefs (Leviticus 18:22: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”). However, that STILL does NOT give her the right to first- kill anyone, and second- kill someone because they are “gay”, etc. I happen to be “disabled”, and also a left kidney donor (December 3, 2012). Is someone going to kill me because I’m a left kidney donor and not a right kidney donor? Guess I’ll have to pray for her and pray harder. So sad.

Even if I don’t support Gay,this is sick to my ears this child is a Minor. How can a she suspect her 4 year old son who haven’t started making decisions of his own. Teach and Guard him and when he’s of age he decided to be Gay respect his decision. At least you have done your part as a Mother. But abusing and Killing your own Child is a Sin against God and Humanity.

No one decides to be gay and submit themselves to such torture. When did you decide to be straight?

It’s hard not to cry when you read things like this because they lived in a homeles shelter and no one said or did anything while this little boy was dying from his beating.Hard that nobody noticed if he was in pain or bleeding like they said he was and didn’t call the cops.Even if he was gay at such a young gay she didn’t have to like it but it’s her son she should love him.Living with abuse at a young age I got lucky I never died but it’s so sad that this little boy had to die knowing they killed him for nothing and that in his death his brothers and sisters will be saved and live better lives.They beat him to death over gayness these two will get to experience jail life and be what they hated because jailers hate people that do things like this to kids and they will be having gay experiences as their punishment and then they can wonder why they killed that little boy.

Those two they are not ppl, they are two monsters! I wouldn’t put them in prison, but I would take them to the desert, with only one little battle of water and let them there, under the sun, nobody around to help, the heat will make them suffer, like they made the little boy suffer and then die, they will have life but not for long, they will have the time to think what they did, but ppl like them will have no remorse for what they did to their little innocent boy. For me is no prison for child molesters, rapper’s kidnappers and anyone who hurts little kids, teenagers,women etc……I’m not for the death penalty, absolutely not…but let that kind of ppl in the middle of nowhere…with nobody to talk to…. not even a little fly buzzing around…well that is the worst punishment for those people. Jmo.

This made me physically ill. What can we do about these monsters living among us?! Every day you hear multiple stories like this; it is so heartbreaking. If they we’re living in a shelter, how did they manage to abuse him without being seen? I’d think there isn’t much privacy in such a place. Bless his little heart…poor kids are better off now but that doesn’t make what they’ve survived (except 1) justified. Hopefully karma will show up when these worthless pieces of trash go to prison; hopefully someone will “eye for an eye” them on behalf of that poor boy.

Foster child cannot win for losing a bad mother and a bad foster home a lot of people take the kids in for money. The foster parents shold be screen and checked on regularly. The child’s should be checked regularly we need to come up a better foster care system.

How can you tell if a child is gayat the age of four that’s a shame what she did to their son I hope they lock her under the jail! They take kids away from abuse. And put them in much more terrible places. The foster kids cannot win for loading they should do the parents like they do their kids and see if they will like the abuse. People keep your children and take care of them a foster parent can be a blessing or it can be a tragedy!

As a person who suffered violent physical abuse as a child along with my sisters this makes me extremely sick in the stomach to read about this. That poor 4 year old child beat to death over something so stupid, even if he was gay (which I don’t see how you’d be able to tell in that early of development) so what? He was a person, a child, an innocent little being with a heart and soul, a brain that just craved love and attention from the very people who murdered this boy. As a grown man this makes me tear up, the thoughts that must have been going through that poor child’s head as his own mother mercilessly and violently beat on him. I truly hope and wish to the powers that be that someone in prison beats this woman and her boyfriend to death, violently, over the course of days, these are the situations in the world where you wish there were still public displays of execution or torture, because pieces of trash like these worthless human beings are only wasting the air we breathe. My god it just breaks my heart thinking of that innocent little person being abused to the point of death by these horrible pieces of garbage. They will rot in jail on our taxpaying dollars while that boy lies in a grave because of their horrid atrocities. I never wish physical harm on anyone, but the sickening nature of these people just makes me wish for 5 minutes alone in a room with them, so I can give them a taste of their own medicine.

This is why we do not get rid of the death penalty.

This is why we do keep it.

This is why we need to keep putting people to sleep.

O my God, this makes me sick. My stance on homosexuality is complicated, and quite frankly, nobody’s business, but this is a disgusting show of utter horrifying stupidity. This woman deserves the death sentence for so many things.

You are a bad person and some sort of double reversed cherry picking hypocrite. Why would you say he’s in a better place? If you believe in religion then he’s definitely not going to a better place for being gay, Religion & gay don’t mix because it doesn’t lead to new followers and it’s really hard to convince an adult to follow a religion – they need to get to them young, which means the parents have to force it on their kid and no gay parent is going to force religion on their kid. You’re welcome.

Good thing none of that religion stuff exists and this poor guy just went back to where he was before he came to being a human. The same place we will all return to one day. No gods need apply.
