Family Indicted After Kids' Bodies Uncovered, Beaten, Kept in Dog Crates

Absolutely disgusting.

Extremely horrific.

According to People, the children’s father, Elwyn John Crocker, Sr., their stepmother, Candice Heather Crocker, and their step-grandmother, Kimberly Renee Wright, are each charged with two counts of felony murder, two counts of cruelty to children in the first degree and two counts of concealing the death of another - Mary Crocker and her brother, Elwyn Crocker, Jr., 14, were once withdrawn from school and never reported missing.

People also reports: Candice Crocker’s brother, Mark Anthony Wright, and the step-grandmother’s boyfriend, Roy Anthony Prater, were charged with felony murder, cruelty to children in the first degree and concealing the death of another in connection with Mary’s death

Mary was reportedly beaten, zip tied, and starved in a dog's cage while each member severely burned her with water and a stun gun. The family tied her to a ladder to 'straighten out her limbs' that had grown crooked because of the dog cage.

Elwyn, Jr. was allegedly beaten, starved, and held in a dog crate for 2 years before his body was found.

There is no bond for two of the alleged beaters, three haven't heard anything on their end yet.

All 5 defendants do not have a court date set yet.
