Joshua Richards is the evil person who killed his 3 year old son with a belt. According to reports, Brentley Gore, 3 years old died at the hospital as a result of his head injuries.
According to metro, Brently Gore’s dad is a Carrolton Police Chief Josh Richards. He was beaten by his step-dad Joshua Richards, 21, while the child’s mom was sleeping.
After his brutal beating Brentley was soon taken to hospital. According to Villa Rice Police “Brentley’s injuries were so severe, he was airlifted to a hospital in Atlanta with multiple skull fractures and severe brain swelling”. An investigation determined that Joshua used a belt to seriously hurt the boy.
A GoFundMe page was set up for his treatment saying: “Brentley is a precious 3 year old boy who was harmed by a such evil human being that we didn’t even think could exist. ‘You never think something like this would happen to your family. Our hearts have been ripped out of our chest.”
A Local police officer Captain Keith Shaddix said “It breaks your heart. This is a beautiful child who is defenseless against an adult. It breaks your heart.’I’ve been doing this for 40 years and these kinds of cases break my heart,”
Joshua was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, first degree child cruelty and weed possession at court last Wednesday. He is now expected to face a first degree murder charge too. Currently, he is on Carroll County Jail.
