Helena and James Jones of Panama City, Florida after teachers at their son’s school called the Department of Children’s Services after the condition he was in when he showed up for school. The amazing thing to me is this had been going on for a while and the school did nothing. On the day of the call, the boy showed up with bedbugs in his hair and in his lunch. He was severely underweight and according to the school, the boy had never been potty trained and often showed up for school with a soiled diaper. The boy was six years old.
In addition, it was found that the boy was overmedicated and that the medication was affecting his ability to walk.
Just weeks before the Jones’ were arrested, their house was condemned following a bed bug infestation. The boy’s bed was infested, and blood was found on his sheets from bites. He also defected blood, which authorities believe was due to the medication his parents were giving him.
