MONROE COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – Two people have been arrested in connection to the neglect and death of a 12-year-old, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
MCSO says 32-year-old Luis Posso, the child’s father, and 25-year-old Dayan Flores are both in custody after 12-year-old Eduardo Posso.
Medical examiners say the child’s body did display signs of both abuse and starvation.
Deputies, after searching the motel room where the family was staying, found shackles and a K9 shock collar.
Additionally, video recovered from cell phones shows the child being restrained in a bathtub as Flores and other children enter and exit the bathroom as they pay no attention to the child.
Also, a “selfe” photo of the father shows the 12-year-old in restraints.
Three other children with Posso and Flores – a 9-year-old, a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old – have been placed in child protection services. Deputies say those three children do appear to be healthy.
Posso and Flores, who are being held in the Monroe County Jail, have been charged with multiple preliminary counts of neglect.
