Couple Charged After Daughter Found Caged, Eating Skin
Child Discovered In Cage, Another Buried In Yard
A Virginia couple has been charged with first degree murder and attempted capitol murder after police found the remains of one of their children buried in the backyard of their trailer home, and another caged, malnourished and eating her own flaking skin.
Authorities discovered the child and remains last Thursday while attempting to serve a warrant at the address of Shannon and Brian Gore stemming from a burglary investigation.
During a search of the singlewide trailer, authorities discovered a 2-year-old girl in a makeshift cage in a darkened bedroom.
The girl was reportedly naked, malnourished, covered in feces and eating the flaked skin from off her body.
Police later recovered the human remains of another child buried in the couple’s backyard.
Shannon and Brian Gore remain jailed.
