A woman poured boiling water in the body of 3-year-old as a punishment in the apartment in Newark. The woman admitted the crime she had committed.
The 3-year-old baby didn’t just receive the blazing hot water but was repeatedly abused and battered by six peoples together during the first three years of his young life. The 29-year-old outrageous woman, Patricia Buchan, lived in a Clinton Place apartment of Newark with other five adults and five other children.
Patricia Buchan pouring the hot water isn’t the only one act that was done to the 3-year-old. His own 43-year-old mother, Natacha Smith, joined the party of abusing and battering a child along with four adults in the apartment. The boy repeatedly remained in the pain when her mother lit cigarettes in his face, and other adults threw a punch towards him.
The child now doesn’t need to testify after Patricia herself admitted to her crime. The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office on Friday reported that the boy lived his first three years in the so-called house of horrors.
The six members from the apartment of Clinton Place were brought in front of the judge, but no one spoke about anything. On Friday, even Patricia denied accusations.
The child is currently in protective custody after he was discharged from the hospital. He was rushed to the hospital after finding the boy’s miserable condition. Thanks to the Newark Public Pre-school’s officials, who notified the police about the immoral activity being executed at the apartment.
The other children who lived in the apartment were evacuated and kept in a safe place and out of reach of any other people. Patricia Buchan will serve probably 5 years in the state prison.
