INTERNATIONAL: Nine-year-old boy beaten and handcuffed for eating cake, dies

CRIME INSIDER – Police say a 9-year-old boy has died after he was allegedly handcuffed and beaten for eating a piece of birthday cake without permission.

Hagerstown police Capt. Paul Kifer says Jack Garcia died Sunday at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington.

Questionable Parenting?

Kifer says police will confer Monday afternoon with Washington County prosecutors about bringing additional charges in the case.

The mother’s boyfriend, 30-year-old Robert Wilson, was charged Wednesday with first-degree assault and child abuse. His public defender hasn’t returned calls from The Associated Press.

The mother’s brother told police the boy was handcuffed Tuesday, June 30 as punishment for stealing the cake. He says Wilson hit the boy in stomach after the handcuffs were removed.

The boy had had a birthday three days earlier.

  3. Was he the father or step dad ? To many women sit by and let the men in their lives abuse their children. If it was so easy to do that for a piece of cake, then that's not the first time. He just went to far this time. Women wake up protect your children. RIP my boy you are free.

  10. So the cake was "his birthday cake", but it wasn't really his? He stole his own cake? Even if he 'stole' the cake, he should not have been treated in that way.
