Episode 30: Keaton Boggs

September 15, 2020

A little West Virginia boy endured the death of his father and was subsequently sent to live with his paternal grandmother, aunt, uncle, and three cousins. Nine months later, five-year-old Keaton Boggs was brought to the emergency room, suffering from a catastrophic head injury and obvious signs of abuse. After two days, Keaton died in the hospital, and his grandmother, aunt, and uncle were arrested in his death and accused of inflicting months of unimaginable abuse and neglect on the helpless little boy.

This is the heartbreaking story of Keaton Boggs.
