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.
