Texas Mother Puts Her Three Children In Straitjackets – Oldest Son, 7, Escapes

22 March 2012 9:35 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

A mother strapped her three children into straitjackets and carried on an incestuous relationship with her own father. Concerned citizens called local Texas police in the early morning on March 18 after witnessing a young boy, 7, riding his bike on the highway in and out of traffic. When the police escorted the young boy home, they discovered his mother, Tamara Ruth Whitt, and her father, Edgar Dale Whitt, had put him and his two younger siblings in straitjackets, the Daily Mail reports. "They didn’t know how he got out," the police report stated. Along with the alleged abuse against the children, Tamara, 26, and Edgar, 54, were also believed to be involved in an incestuous relationship with each other. Sheriff Stan Parker of Howard County, Texas confirmed to Mail Online that the youngest son, 2, was the child of the father and his own daughter but that the other two children were not the result of incest. »
