Sgt. Ed Downs of the Hocking County sheriff’s office told The Columbus Dispatch that this was “the most disgusting, heinous,” case of child abuse he has ever seen.
An Ohio grandmother gagged her GRANDDAUGHTER, 11, with soiled men’s underwear, and then taped it shut! These claims are ludicrous, however an elder child, 13, secretly filmed the entire incident with her cellphone.
The video shows the accused, Karen Sharpe, forcing the underwear, soiled with feces, into the minor’s mouth and taping it shut. When the girl vomited, her grandmother ordered her to swallow it. This was all a punishment for the minor offense of accidentally stepping on her grandmother’s injured foot.
Sharpe is being charged with kidnapping, child endangerment and is being held on a $1 million dollar bail. It has yet to be reported if anyone will put up the money to bail this woman out.
