Aunt finds 3-year-old nephew in linen closet, beaten and scalded


3-year-old found locked in linen closet 

See that face up there staring back at you, looking like she is mad at the world, that is woman who locked her 3-year-old son in a closed 24 inches wide and 12 inches high, hit him on nearly every part of his body and burned him.  Isn’t that pissed off look something to look at, aren’t you tempted to smack it off her face.  Well get in line behind me, I get first shot at her. 

Ladies and Gentlemen today we have for your reading disgust Fairrin Moss (23), she has been charged one count of felonious assault and two counts of endangering a child.  Back on December 9th she was arrested after a woman described by investigators found her son locked in a second floor linen closet, in Moss’ apartment.  When the aunt removed his clothing to give him a bath, she noticed bruising to his body and took him to Nationwide Children’s Hospital, who them notified police.  Good for the aunt, at least she cared enough about the little guy to seek treatment for him. 

According to police he was kept in a linen closet, no lights, he couldn’t sit or stand up, he had to lie down. Sometimes he’d be left in there for hours at a time while she left the home.  He had been beaten over the head, in the head, in the stomach, on the side, the legs, grabbed around the neck and a severely burned right foot.  The burns were apparently the result of contact with scalding water.  Gawd damn! 

scalded right foot

According to police in an odd way the little guy is “very lucky, had the aunt not intervened…. she probably saved his life.”  The little guy has been placed in foster care, where he is recovering from his injuries. 

Moss pleaded not guilty and is free on bond.  Travesty, she should be locked up, this beast of a woman has forever changed this little boy’s life.  Why should she be free to roam the streets and live her life while he recovers?
