Moses Lake Child Abuse Victim Had No Hair, Muscle Tone
According to new information released by authorities, a Moses Lake boy suffering from child abuse could not even have sat up on his own for some time.
In addition, the 2-year-old who weighed less than ten pounds when revived last week by EMS workers, had no hair, and no discernible muscle tone. The boy's mother has been identified. Authorities confiscated a number of medical bottles and other items from the home, and they believe the mother was consulting with a naturopath provider in dealing with the boy. The reason for such possible treatment was not released.
Detectives and DSHS personnel continue to investigate. The boy remains on life support in Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. Other children found in the home were not appearing to suffer abuse and no arrests have been reported in the case.
