According to several news sources, a North Carolina couple has been detained and charged with murder in connection with the passing of their adopted toddler boy who perished following a reportedly lengthy sequence of "exorcisms."
According to a news statement from the Surry County Sheriff's Office, Joseph Wilson, 41, and Jodi Wilson, 38, both of Mount Airy, were detained on January 13 and are currently being held at the Surry County Detention Center without bond.
Sheriff Steve C. Hiatt stated in the statement, "This is a heartbreaking situation that resulted in the death of a wonderful kid way too soon." Please keep in your thoughts the other siblings involved in this tragedy as well as the detectives who put a lot of effort into this case.
The investigation into the murder of their adopted 4-year-old son, Skyler Wilson, on Jan. 9 led to the charges. According to authorities, Skyler Wilson died as a result of injuries sustained during maltreatment at the hands of his parents.
The couple has two biological children, and they also foster two other kids, according to Mount Airy News. According to the sheriff's office, the Department of Social Services received custody of the kids under their care.
After experiencing a medical emergency on January 5, Skyler was confirmed dead at Brenner's Children Hospital, according to the authorities. According to the warrants Fox 8 reviewed, he was killed by homicide and died from hypoxic brain injury brought on by "too much constriction" while being "swaddled."
