Gloucester County, Virginia (The Weekly Vice) - Gloucester County couple, Shannon Gore, 24, and Brian Gore, 29, were jailed Thursday after one child was found starving in a crib that had been converted into a cage - and the remains of a second child have been discovered in the couple's back yard.
According to the the Gloucester County Sheriff's Office, police were called to the couple's home on an unrelated case when they discovered a child (aged 5 or 6) that was trapped inside a crib that had been converted into a cage by placing a board across the top.
The child was naked, covered in feces and described as being severely malnourished. It is believed that she was left in the caged crib unattended for long periods of time.
The child was taken to Riverside Walter Reed Hospital Emergency Room and then transferred by ambulance to Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters. She is now listed in stable condition although doctors say if police would have found her a week later, the child likely would have died.
Investigators say detectives were digging for abuse-related evidence when they found the remains of another child near a shed in the back yard. The age or sex of the child has not been determined. The remains will be sent to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy to hopefully determine how the child died.
Another 1-month-old male child was also in the home, however he appeared to be in good health. Both children were placed in the protective custody of the Gloucester Department of Social Services.
The Gores were booked into the Gloucester County Jail. Both were charged with felony child abuse. Mrs. Gore was also charged with attempted capital murder and is being held without bond. Mr. Gore was released after posting $1,500 bail, but was apprehended again on Saturday following the discovery of the other child's remains. Officers have not yet released the arresting charges, but stated that he is currently in jail.
