4-year-old Emma Thompson of Spring, Texas died back in late June. According to the autopsy she died from blunt abdominal trauma. Charged with her death are her mother, 33-year-old Abigail Elizabeth Young, and Young’s boyfriend, 27-year-old Lucas Ruric Coe. The autopsy also revealed that Emma had a fractured skull and vaginal tearing consistent of that with a sexual assault. Not only that but before Emma died she had tested positive for genital herpes in a Texas CPS investigation and was not removed from the home.
It’s alleged that Young lied to CPS about her penis being at the residence. And speaking of said penis he has a history of being investigated by CPS himself for complaints from a 0previous girlfriens about her child. Coe also has a criminal record which should come as no surprise. As a matter of fact in a case of sick irony when Coe was arrested he was wearing a t-shirt that said “It’s all fun and games until the cops show up”. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s on the receiving end of some ‘fun’ in his new digs.
Normally I don’t let the pictures of the victims affect me but I couldn’t help but notice how full of life Emma seemed to be.
Speaking of life that’s what Young and Coe are both facing.
Thanks to Laura for the tip.
