Blackstone,MA: 4 children and 3 infants remains found in unspeakable conditions

Erika Murray and her taped off home
Let me start by giving some background on Blackstone. Blackstone is a very small town in the historic Blackstone River Valley which is in both MA and RI. This valley was  the birthplace of the industrial revolution in the US.
              Earlier this week police were called to home in Blackstone,MA on reports that a baby was crying for a very long time. When officers arrived they found the baby age 6 mons. covered in feces and in a home full of filth,rodents,roaches and dirty diapers stacked over a foot high. A total of 4 living children were removed from the home. Police discovered the remains of 3 babies in the home as well as the remains of cats and dogs. Police are not sure if they will find more human remains or not as CSI's in hazmat suits sift through the filth. Neighbors say the house has smelled for a long time,even reporting that in winter the windows were open and the smell coming out about knocked them over. I can't begin to wrap my head around this. The woman in the house (Erika Murray) (believed to be the mother) was arraigned on Friday Sept. 12,2014 and pled not guilty to concealment of fetal death,witness intimidation and child endangerment. According to DA Early other charges may be added later. For now Erika Murray is held without bail. I'd like to know why her boyfriend who lived in the home was not charged?  I never thought I'd say this,but the Nancy Grace show is in Blackstone on this case.  Boston Globe story on this case

White House Boys child abuse case

At the Florida Industrial School For Boys in Marinna,FL atrocities took place from at least the 1940's through the 1960's which until recently were kept hidden inside the victims.  One victim started a website and support system  for these boys now men who were beaten beyond my comprehension. Thanks to this brave man Roger Dean Kiser author of The White House Boys: An American Tragedy I am able to tell you their story. Thank you Mr.Kiser and all the brave White House Boys for allowing this blog to be written.
                Many of these boys were not sent to the reform school for any crime,they simply weren't wanted or were orphans. They were taken to a building at the school behind the mess hall called the White House  and were told to lay on a filthy mattress on a bed frame with springs. They then had to hold onto the metal bed frame and bite the nasty pillow while they were beat with a leather strap that had a metal strip inside for reinforcement. The wounds were horre…
