Jeffrey Singer, Tina Louise Madrid: Their Disabled Son Found Decomposing in a Box
Good Lord: The Pasadena parents of an 11-year-old kid with cerebral palsy have been arrested after his body was found decomposing in a box in the back of their SUV.
Father Jeffrey Singer was charged Sunday with injury to a child by omission and mother Tina Louise Madrid was charged with neglect.
According to media reports, Singer drove the vehicle to his father's Houston home and said the child had been harmed. Singer's father then called police.
A spokesman at the medical examiner's office said it "may take awhile" to identify the boy due to the condition of the body. He said the pathologist would determine how long the victim had been deceased.
