Horror story: Father beat 7-year-old son to death, fed his body to pigs
Michael A. Jones

Michael A. Jones, 44, of Kansas City, Kan., is being held in the beating death of his 7-year-old son. Jones, who has been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated battery, and child abuse, is being held at Wyandotte County Jail on a bond of $10 million.

According to Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome A. Gorman, that bail is the highest any judge has ever imposed in the 34 years he’s been with the DA’s office. But in this case Judge Constance Alvey wanted to make a statement — first about the deplorable living conditions Jones’s eight children were forced to endure, second about the unorthodox efforts Jones resorted to to conceal his crime: Investigators believe he fed his son’s body to pigs.

According to Kansas City NBC affiliate WSFA:

Police came to the home Wednesday morning on a report of Michael Jones attacking his wife and firing a gun at her. As the investigation progressed, someone told them to check for the decomposed body of a missing 7-year-old boy.

Two women who often looked after the children say the conditions were deplorable. “Their house was horrible,” said one who asked for anonymity. “Their house was just filthy. The kids lived in filth. Trash everywhere. Dried food all over the house.”

The seven other children are now safe and in the protective of the Kansas Department For Children and Families.
