Police have found a five-year-old boy severely malnourished and beaten in a closet at 9:30 PM Thursday night in Spring, Texas. The boy’s biological father, Bradley Bleimeyer, and stepmother, Tammi Bleimeyer, have been arrested for the inexcusable lack of care for this little boy.
The victim was said to be found that evening in the closet next to his 16-year-old brother and was wearing only his diaper. The older son then got into a confrontation with their father, causing Bradley and Tammi to flee with the little boy. Officers did not make it to the premises on time.
By using cell phone data, officers were able to find where the couple took the boy. Upon finding them at a motel, police immediately called Emergency Service personnel after seeing the young boy’s condition. He was quickly taken to a nearby hospital in Humble.
Assistant Chief Mark Herman stated that he has never seen anything quite as terrible as this in his career of thirty years.

The couple is being charged with felony child endangerment and the victim’s father is currently in jail with no bond. His stepmother, for whatever reason, has been granted a bond of $2,000.
The little boy, now under custody of Children’s Protective Services, was still being hospitalized on Monday. This couple should be locked up for the rest of their lives because not only were they intentionally not caring for a child, but the crime reached the point of deliberate torture to a five-year-old boy. How a parent could do that to their child is beyond any logical understanding.
