Stepparents generally tend to welcome their stepchildren in with open arms and treat them as their own. However, this monster wanted no part in that.
How do you feel about your stepchildren’s real parents? Would you ever hurt them because of your hatred of their parents? That should always be a question to which the answer is no, it is completely terrifying what happened to this precious child. His stepmom hated his mother and was jealous that the child was not her own.
Her name is Danielle Lynn Miller and her significant others name is Nathan Duke. The couple has been arrested and jailed for the torture and abuse done to Duke’s 4-year-old son. Miller arrested for doing these things to him and Duke arrested for standing by and doing nothing while she did this.
Miller forced the little boy to ingest hot sauce and would not allow him any water, she tied up his legs and told him they were ‘playing mermaid.’ She didn’t stop there, she gave him laxatives and locked him in a closet for hours at a time all the while his father stood by ignoring the whole thing. This young boy was humiliated and tortured by the very people who were supposed to be there for him and love him.
He did nothing wrong and was punished for existing. Crimes like this make me sick and disgusted with the world we live in. Miller called this young child a pig and would even burn him repeatedly with her cigarettes. According to Lancaster Online police were made aware of this by a friend who was concerned for this child. Once the police arrived at the home of this couple they found there were three other children in this woman’s care as well (her biological children.)
The three other children were fine and had not been attacked at all. This boy was targetted and the things done to him were without a doubt planned out beforehand. These children were all of course removed from the home and it is unknown at this time what the real mother of the child has to say about all of this.
We can only hope that the road to recovering from all of this is not hard on this poor boy. This is not the first time something like this has happened and it won’t be the last. If you ever notice something bad happening to any child please do not hesitate to make the police aware. How do you feel about all of this?
