Ryan Waldo MySpace
Kansas City, Missouri (The Weekly Vice) - Grain Valley couple Carrie Waldo, 25, and Ryan Waldo, 33, have been jailed after they allegedly abandoned a 4-month-old child whose fingers were then eaten off by the family's pet ferret.
According to police, the Waldo's son was just 4-month-old when the family's pet ferret chewed off seven of his fingers while he slept.
Investigators say the couple called 911 at 2:30 a.m. back on January 10. Emergency crews and police arrived to find the child missing all of his fingers except both thumbs and part of his pinkie finger.
Carrie Waldo told detectives that she and her husband were both asleep when they were suddenly awakened by the sound of their son crying.
Something about Mrs. Waldo's explanation didn't sit right with detectives, so in Columbo-like fashion, they quietly pulled the Waldo's cell phone records to see if Carrie and Ryan were really at home like they claimed to have been.
Investigators say a trace of the couple's cell phones records revealed that they were not at home at the time they claimed that the child was sleeping. In fact, police say, the couple wasn't even in the same city.
The couple was booked into the Jackson County Jail on charges of felony child endangerment. Bond in the case was set at $5,000 each. Preliminary hearings in the case begin for both parents on July 13.
A source tells us that the Waldos attempted to give the Ferret away several days before the child's fingers were eaten off. Reason? The Ferret had bitten the child two times prior to this horrific incident.
