Ryan Patrick O'Leary, 30, and Sheila O'Leary, 35, only fed their kids raw fruit and vegetables and their 18-month-old son starved to death. According to the police report, the child weighed only 17 pounds, what a healthy seven-month-old would weigh but was starvation for a child nearly two years of age. The child was born in their home and had never seen a doctor.
A Lee County Grand Jury has indicted the couple, charging them with first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter, child abuse, and two counts of child neglect. It was simple torture, according to authorities.
Three other children living there were also malnourished and one had to have teeth removed. One child slept in a dog bed because there were only two twin beds for the six people living there. O'Leary is the biological father of the three youngest children, the oldest is in Virginia with their paternal father. The O'Learys will be arraigned on December 23rd.
A vegan diet with nutrient supplements is a choice for fully developed adults but is reckless with growing children, and in this case murder.
