The neglected and abused dogs belonging to the family of missing 5-year-old Joe Clyde Daniels were found in Dickson, Tennessee. The two dogs had been dropped off at a property nine miles away on Garners Creek Road last Sunday; three days before Joe Clyde had been reported missing by his parents.


According to Nbc26News,  general manager, Vivienne Akhdary, of the Dickson County Humane Society said the dogs were very skinny, covered in fleas and ticks and showed signs of abuse. The TCB Kennels Boarding & Rescue founder Trisha Davis, has been caring for the dogs since the shelter is full. The dogs are slowly recuperating and have been named Joe and Clyde in honor of the little boy’s memory.

Joseph Ray Daniels, 28, and Krystal Nicole, the parents of Joe Clyde have been arrested; Joseph Ray admitted to beating his autistic son to death. The search for the child’s body continues in Dickson County after investigators state Joseph Ray put his son’s body in the trunk of his car and disposed of his small body in a “remote area.”

Court records describe the child’s father as striking the little boy repeatedly in the body, upper torso, head and face with a closed fist until Joe Clyde died. The child’s mother admitted she was present at the beating and has been charged with aggravated child neglect or endangerment.

Two other children ages 8 and 3 have been placed with relatives.

The STATE should put the two remaining Children in Protective Services…. Hell they are going to NEED THERAPY for maybe the REST of their LIVES>>> the dogs were LUCKY to be alive…

    Not surprising that animal abuse would be involved in this case. Parents like this should NEVER have children! I am willing to bet this whole family has lived in fear and at the mercy of this POS man, too afraid to say boo! I hope they find the little boy’s body, he needs to be laid to rest and give some closure to his family.

      I agree w/you 100% Ray – these two hunks of maggot puke do not deserve to get a trial – two wastes of space who should be immediately done in, and not too humanely – they deserve exactly what they gave a five year old and two innocent dogs – NO MERCY!

    No words, just tears and disbelief.
    This sick father deserve the death penalty and the mother? She deserves life in prison. So heinous, so disturbing. Thankfully, the other children and the dogs lives have been spared from these sick people!
