On August 11, 2016, a railroad worker in Galien Township, Michigan, made a startling discovery. There, on the tracks near the border with Indiana, was a 12-year-old boy. He had apparently fled from his nearby home the previous night.

It was immediately clear that something was wrong. The boy was taken to Lakeland Hospital in Niles, MI, where doctors apparently found him to be in a terrible state. Reports claimed that the boy was severely emaciated and was suffering from dehydration and malnutrition.

The boy was apparently so thin that his ribs could be seen protruding beneath his skin. Worse still, there was reportedly a burn from a cigarette on his back. He is also said to have had a cut lip and to have weighed just 47 pounds. Furthermore, he had a shocking story to tell.
