Amber Traxler’s ten-year-old son, Jared, wouldn’t open the door of their guest bedroom. She had a bad feeling – and when she finally got inside, all her worst fears were confirmed. So she gave fellow parents a warning to prevent them from having to make the same tragic discovery.

Jared was one of Traxler’s five children. The pre-teen was growing up in New Haven, Kentucky, a city with fewer than 850 residents, according to the 2000 census. But his childhood wasn’t as carefree and idyllic as a small-town upbringing is supposed to be.

In June of 2015, Jared had visited his grandfather, Jake Myers, to ask if he could use one of his fishing rods. But the then-nine-year-old was never able to get an answer – when he walked in, he found that 53-year-old Myers was dead.
