An 8 year old boy was found locked inside an abandoned church, with only a paint can and a roll of toilet paper, after neighbors told Child Protective Services that the boy’s mother often left the child there. The mother, who told investigators that the boys were homeschooled, regularly isolated the boy and his brothers, aged 11 and 1, in the abandoned building as a form of punishment. The family lived in Texas.
