Adrian was a tiny bag of bones when he died. His last months were a living hell. He was locked behind a plywood door in a shower, made to stand for hours in stagnant water up to his neck, shackled, bound, starved and beaten.
His stepmother called him 'the boy,' rather than use his given name. While she and Adrian's father cared for their six girls, he was singled out for abuse of the worst kind.
Even in death, there was one last indignity. Instead of a proper burial, the seven-year-old was fed to pigs his father had bought specifically for the purpose of getting rid of his emaciated body.
This is one story which sprung tear in every reader's eye.
The following images are real, also quiet disturbing.
Viewers discretion is advised.
A photograph showed him with a bar of soap stuffed in his mouth, others with injuries caused by a Taser. Heather seemed to be documenting the abuse and the injuries it caused as if she was proud of it.
Heather had sent a message on social media to an unknown person: 'Just strapped the boy to my inversion table with handcuffs and ace bandages and put him downstairs,' she wrote, adding: 'the hubby wants some a** and I ain't had none in over a week!!'
She signed off cheerily: 'love y'all nighty night.'
And then, at some point between September 18 and October 4 of 2015, Adrian died. For two weeks, investigators believe the family lived with the body before Michael Jones went out and bought six feeder pigs. He then tossed the body in their pen trying to erase all evidence of how they had tortured the boy to death.
