Missing 14-year-old boy feared to be in ‘extreme danger’ after he vanished wearing shirt with strange writing

Not sure what's wrong with the article I linked, but here's another.

Weird that his head was shaved and was wearing a t shirt with the word "liar" scribbled on it.

Anyhow, it's a strange case for all you DL sleuths.

If this isn’t a hoax and the parents were abusive, give them life. Something about making your child wear that and take photos is sick as fuck and no doubt there was other shit going on. There was another recent TikTok video of a father mentally abusing his little daughter because of a test or some shit. There was a mother on TikTok who had her two kids chained up, starving, while her other five made videos with her. I bring this up because of the photo thing. We live in a very sick virtual world with adults fucked in the head.

The parents killed him - probably marched him or left him out in the cold as a punishment and he died of freezing and now they're saying he ran away. There was a cop in New York recently that killed (I can't remember if it was only one or both of) his sons. They were autistic and he'd punish them for being disruptive by stripping them naked and spraying them with cold water then forcing them outside or in the garage with no heat.

by Anonymousreply 44March 20, 2023 10:12 PM

This is heartbreaking. I ran away at 15. My father was not as abusive as this boy’s parents may be. But he was pretty bad.

As long ago as that was, I’ll never forget my father’s response when I finally called him a couple of days later. He never said he was worried or frightened. He screamed and screamed at me because of how I’d embarrassed him among friends and neighbors when word got out that I’d run away.

We managed to make peace with each other. Years afterwards. But I spent much of the rest of my life believing my father’s reputation was more important to him than my well-being.

My heart goes out to this kid.

They talk like he's a grown up and it's normal to have your kid just bounce at night time. And why do these assholes think they're at all convincing?

I jumped ahead of a lot of messages. People in the county suspected/knew he was being abused. From Reddit:

[QUOTE] ’t read well connected from any of the people posting on FB that know the family. Everyone seems to say the same thing…rumours of abuse…no one seems to know if CPS was involved. But this kid got his head shaved for punishment all the time. Had to sleep on his bed frame with no mattress or anything. Lots of weird disciplines if you even want to call them that.

They're probably "Christian," parents who would stand up in a court of law and still try to justice their extreme abuse of their son. They will swear up and down Jesus Christ approved, and Indiana law makers will agree, the child was wicked and eventually got the he'll he deserved.

Mark my words, there will be at least one Christian sect to agree and use thus as defense. Cunts ALWAYS gotta CUNT!

Thank you, R60. It was a safe place. I’d hitchhiked to where my sister was in college. She insisted that I call him. I didn’t want to. But I’d known she’d make me do that. I guess I understood that I had to. It’s weird how even now (fifty years later) I still remember how floored I was by his reaction. Maybe less consciously I wasn’t surprised at all.

All of this… my experience, which I was fortunate to survive, and this boy’s awful story, which holds little promise of a happy ending… makes me think of a play I saw a year or so ago. Wish I could remember the name.

One of you will know it. The dialogue was the actual recorded dialogue from this woman who was held captive by a man she had previously been either a prison chaplain or prison psychologist to. The actress lip synced the dialogue for the entire performance.

One thing about the play stood out to me. When she was out in public with her captor, she tried to telegraph to passersby that she was in danger. She even had access to cops at one point at a 7-11 or some such. But no one, not even the cops, could or would recognize that the woman was in harm’s way. To the contrary, they were being chummy with her violent psychopathic kidnapper.

No, I’d never try to compare my upbringing to what she went through. But I remember as a child trying to tell adults, family friends, aunts and uncles, that my father was hurting me. And, to a person, they dismissed me, they downplayed everything I said. To the point I eventually felt that trying to seek help was useless.

Reading about Scottie, I can’t help but imagine he’s had similar experiences, trying to reach for a lifeline only to be ignored. I sincerely want to hope he’s alright. Despite the evidence.

Is it possible that he ran away, and the mom feels bad because she punished him with all that crazy writing on his clothing, and now the heat is on her?

Surely, she's a main suspect because of the writing on his shirt.

No doubt, they asked her about it and she admitted to writing it, because it makes specific reference to family members.

So why haven't they arrested her?

Unless we're talking about Mayberry Police Department, she must have an alibi.

I'm thinking she was doling out her usual abusive punishment on this poor kid, and he had finally had enough and ran away.

The story says he was seen walking down the street.

So I'm thinking that maybe he did actually run away from home, or maybe he even took his own life.

I'm not defending her. I'm saying it's just another theory.

I am assuming the parents had to learn their behavior somewhere so they probably grew up the same way. This doesn't excuse them but if it is all they ever knew they wouldn't know any better.

Over the years we've all developed a sixth sense about this, r73. It's not actually a sixth sense, it's that the honest reactions we see in genuinely frightened and grieving parents aren't present in the fakers. It's not just that they can't/don't cry, it's a thousand different clues that tell us they are lying, they ring false.

People need to trust those instincts even if the cops don't have the evidence yet. We know when we see someone faking it. Susan Smith and that guy who killed his wife and put his daughters in an oil tank (I forget his name) are good examples of lying killers we immediately knew were lying as soon as they start talking. We just know. They tell us the truth even when they lie.

Bad feeling this kid came from a home with humiliating punishments. Some parents really are that nasty. I could see them making a kid march outside in the cold. Growing up (90s), my uncle's GF (now wife) had a hard to handle toddler that would sometimes wet the bed. One "punishment" was to make him out in the car to sleep -- a 3yr old! during winter!

My mom alerted people, but everyone just turned on her. He became my cousin through adoption, but it's dysfunctional with them even in adulthood... Guess I'm just saying I'm not surprised at how rotten some parents can be, even to small children, over minor infractions.

Its true. Some parents use excessive corporal punishment and humiliation as a way to control and abuse kids. I've seen it too. The cops haven't said who wrote that on his shirt or who took the picture. If the parents did something to this kid, the other kids would know. I'm afraid he might have walked off and hurt himself.

Scottie's shirt read "I hurt my little brother."

Maybe that's why the little boy's arm is in a sling.

And that could be why his mother made him wear that stupid shirt. Maybe Scottie lied about how the little boy got hurt, which would explain all the different writing all over the shirt.

If that's the case, then it could also be why the mother looks so nervous. She knows she went too far and caused him to run away and possibly kill himself.

It could also be why the police are protecting her.

Odd there's no sign of him. It's been a week. Either he ran away and:

A) He has someone hiding and protecting him very well.

B) He's very good at hiding and is afraid to show himself.

C) He's very good at hiding, has died and they can't find his body.


His parents, or just his father, lost it in anger and killed him, hiding the body, either on property or elsewhere. He's scrawny and both parents are big fuckers who could easily overpower this fourteen year old. It's the fat whining mother who's been seen only once, putting on a poor performance. No mention of law enforcement interviewing the other kids and no sign of the father. Never underestimate The White Trash Good Ol' Boys Network. This is starting to have the same smell as the Delphi murders.

I'm sorry for sounding like WebSleuths, but this really makes me sick. There are so many people like this family; fat, lazy, selfish, hateful trash who have no business having kids and man, can they lie their fat asses off to cover up when they've done something.

I believe Scottie's mother, at least, (no word whether the father was in home or if there's a live in boyfriend who provoked or instigated the situation) delivered a punishment that led to her son's death.

My belief is that after she wrote the derogatory, shaming statements on the t-shirt, and made sure his head was shaved publicly (she claimed he wanted it at Super Cuts, FFS), and sent him out of the family house near a prominent intersection in town where they lived to walk around with his billboard t-shirt admitting "crimes" in order to humiliate and shame her son in front of the whole town when he walked around shivering and nearing hypothermia with the confession Mama scrawled across his chest.

I stand by my belief he was kicked out of the family house so mother could please a new man, or she just hated him beyond belief. After four sprogs, as the oldest, he probably disappointed his cooch-twitching mother.

Morris lives with his parents — both employees of Del-Com schools — and three siblings, including a twin sister.

Turner said many of the adults interviewed said Scottie Morris was "the sweetest kid you ever want to meet," described as both "very polite" and "jovial."

The police chief said the teenager apparently tried to run away once before, but that effort was interrupted by a member of his extended family.

Turner also said the boy at times was in conflict with his mother — a fairly common experience for a teenager, he noted — and that there was no evidence he had been physically abused.

I wonder of CPS/DCFS will make a visit to the family now? The article cited upthread says both parents work for the school district, but not their occupations. Reports to CPS usually come from mandated reporters like teachers, medical personnel, etc. Might it be school staff protected the mother like the sheriff seems to be doing now? Small towns just suck.

I'm curious how the polygraph questions were phrased. Was the administrator able to get them to say whether Scottie had left on his own vs. being sent out in the cold with that t-shirt as punishment? Also would like to know if the other kids were questioned.

I hope it’s not death, but why would death be the only outcome for an abused child? Where are/were the neighbors? They didn’t hear or see abuse? Wearing a shirt like that, there was abuse, and I’m sure there was abuse in public. Where is child protective services? I would have absolutely called the police on those people. Many times probably. People are unconcerned today. It’s sad.

He's the frequently run away and we would spend hours looking for him and when he was home he was constantly attacking us our pets and screaming at my mom.

I knew he wasn’t dead because the police said the video showed him leaving the house, not returning, and never said the parents left the house.

With that in mind, something is wrong with that family and I suspect the son is the scapegoat and gets a lot of abuse from not just the parents but also the siblings.

I always assumed he just ran off because his parents are assholes. They may be emotionally abusive, but at the same time this seems like pretty typical small town Indiana parenting, and 99% of them don't actually kill their kids. That's still another level IMO.

That kid is a victim of child abuse. A similar situation arose in my cousin's house. My uncle is an asshole. He had four kids. Mt aunt died giving birth to #5. He remarried and his new wife had 4 kids. She mistreated #5 terribly. Had her going to school with a "dunce hat" on her head and a sign around her neck telling everyone she was "bad." She was locked in a closet and mocked and ridiculed by her older step siblings. She took up shop lifting and was in and out of Juvie. She did drugs, she was a complete mess. She married a good guy who has given her stability. But she is still fragile and damaged. Hope the cops look into the way this kid is treated at home. I feel really bad for him.

Parents are known to do sick things to him like shaving head regularly and taking matress.

Twin and aunt have made SM posts that expose the family scapegoating dynamic, they don't even back off when he is missing. Describe him as "bad" at home.

Folks knew. So glad her history of neglect has been verifiably exposed.

What kind of insane small town in Indiana routinely tortures children like this?

Public humiliation is not discipline. Publicly shaming a child with is child abuse. To make a shaming, embarrassing t-shirt like that, shave a child's head and take his mattress away (so he slept on the floor?) is ALL child abuse.

Parenthood doesn't mean these dirtbags can treat children any way they want. Their children should be removed from that household and the parents should be arrested for child abuse. This is not a difficult case to appropriately resolve.

My brother in law went full MAGA in the last few years. His insanity was already in progress (Rush Limbaugh etc.). I remember a couple of years ago I had a conversation/debate with him about the horrors of government regulation. I pointed some things like child labor laws - I pointed out that more than a century ago children were working in factories, with dangerous conditions and machines.

Me: "do you want children to work in places where they can be harmed...??"

Him: "if parents want their children to work, even if their hands are cut off, that's up to the parents not the government!!"

A 14-year-old wants to be found. And no decent person would ever keep a 14-year-old from being found, if he'd been sheltering with the family of a friend or a youth shelter, they were probably urging him to report to the police and make damn sure that CPS got involved in his home life, and if he'd ended up at a homeless encampment there were probably people who have talked to him about going back and getting help, rather than staying and dooming himself to life on the streets.

Yes, I've met many homeless people through my jobs, most of them are wrecks but they're still people with normal human instincts. And helping a child in distress is a normal human instinct.

The school photo of this kid reminds me of my own at that age. Smile doesn't reach to one muscle beyond the mouth and even that's debatable. My family's nickname for me was "the liar" and I was a straight-A student who actually won citizenship awards in school because I was so fucking terrified of being hated and doing anything wrong that I just went nuts trying to do the right thing and prove I wasn't "bad."

I hope this boy gets help but will he? In a small town like that, and with child services generally eager to keep kids with parents, and often staffed by overworked people who don't understand how good some parents are at feigning care? If he's being scapegoated to the extent that it looks like (that shirt is horrific), that's long-term life-ruining shit. Like he is 90% guaranteed fucked if no one stands up for him or takes his side, and it's pretty much certain that family dynamic, of him being the bad one, will continue well into adulthood. My siblings still treat me like a worthless sub-human.

It's awful to see this happening from an outside, adult perspective. Children are so vulnerable, and so unable to help themselves during the time of life when the damage is done. I'm so happy this kid is alive and I hope he goes on to live a happy, fulfilled life.
