A 13-year-old boy who was lashed to tree overnight in June likely died from dehydration a coroner’s report has stated.
Tyler McMillan of North Carolina was tied to the tree overnight by the man who dared to call himself Tyler’s father, Brice McMillan, as a form of punishment because he was being ‘disobedient’.
The report also states that Tyler’s body was covered with insect bites and had marks on his body that were basically switch marks, as in ‘go out to the woods boy and cut me a switch.’
The next morning Tyler was found unresponsive and when Brice McMillan and his wife Sandra called 911 they repeatedly ignored the dispatcher’s questions about what Tyler was doing before he stopped breathing. Tyler’s temperature was 105.6 by the time he got to the hospital.
Two other children, ages 7 and 9, were placed in the custody of DSS.
Even though Sandra McMillan was Tyler’s step-mother it still took two alleged adults to agree that tying him to a tree and leaving him there overnight after a sever beating was a good idea. How do these monsters keep finding each other. It goes to support my outlandish theory that there’s some kind of underground child abuse network.
Both McMillans are due in court next month.
