Couple arrested in death of adopted teen

Adopted father of deceased Cass County teen arrested:

I could have sworn I posted this story before but I guessed it slipped my mind.
Anyway, the story is about a Cass County, TX adopted teen who was alleged to have been killed by his adopted mother Cynthia Hudson. She was arrested for his death. Now the adopted father of 13-year-old Samuel Hudson has also been arrested.

Police in Queen City, Texas have arrested William Hudson for tampering with evidence.

The police originally thought that William’s death was a suicide but their investigation led them to believe that William was killed by his adopted mother. Could the tampering charge have come from the Hudsons trying to stage the crime scene?

It also turns out that the Hudsons may have been just another couple that were in it for the money.

The other adopted children in the house have allegedly told police that they were deprived food and abused as well.

Thanks again to Lori for keeping me abreast of the situation.

UPDATE: Just seconds after I finished writing this post Lori sent me yet another article on the situation. Now not only are police saying that Samuel Hudson was restrained and beaten to death but they are seeking the death penalty against Cynthia Hudson. I can’t say she doesn’t deserve it.

  1. That’s what I was thinking! The last article I posted said the other kids were told that by the mom or something. Maybe LE were TOLD that at first? I can’t imagine how it would even look like a suicide.

  3. How do people like that keep getting kids to adopt??? I don’t understand why the crazies aren’t found out before a child dies. This is so sad.

  5. Not trying to make excuses for DCF or anything, but it seems like its probably once again a case of the system being stretched to thin and someone slipping through the cracks. Maybe if social workers made more then they do and lost some of the mandates from above it wouldn’t happen. Sadly, social workers aren’t top priority…
