NC Boy Found Handcuffed With Dead Chicken Around Neck | Foster Parent DSS Supervisor
NC Boy Found Handcuffed With Dead Chicken Around Neck | Foster Parent DSS Supervisor
'Filthy, feces on the floor, holes in the wall', Some of the words a N.C. sheriff used to describe home where foster child was found handcuffed to porch.
Deputy found 11-year-old shivering outside with dead chicken hanging around his neck.


"The 11-year-old boy and four other children, ages 8, 9, 13 and 14, were removed from the home. Authorities learned about the situation after a deputy responded Friday to a complaint about a hog at a neighboring house saw the boy wearing a T-shirt and jeans shivering outside.


Wanda Sue Larson, a supervisor with the Union County Department of Social Services, and Dorian Lee Harper, an emergency room nurse at CMC-Union in Monroe, face charges of intentional child abuse inflicting serious injury, false imprisonment, and cruelty to animals.


Larson also faces charges of willful failure to discharge her duty as a public official. Cathey said Larson has worked with his agency, as well as others around Union County.

Harper reportedly lived at the residence with Larson, who was not present at the time of Friday's incident. They had adopted four of the children and were serving as foster parents for the 11-year-old."
