A six-year-old boy’s horrific life is brought to light as cops break, open the door to his house and discover him sobbing uncontrollably inside sally peterson leaned on her windowsill wondering if what she’d heard last night was true or just a hunch, she was 80 and given the Troubles that had befriended her in old age. It wasn’t surprising that she could imagine the six-year-old jason crying at night. However, something in her heart told her. Otherwise, so she decided to discuss it with her neighborhood and good friend, mrs martin, to confirm her concerns hello, billy. She said softly her voice, anxious sorry for showing up uninvited at your house, but did you also hear jason weeping around 9 pm last night?
She inquired standing on their porch. Oh sally good morning, come in. I was just making tea. What did you say? Jason, the little boy who’s dad exactly billy.
I noticed a boy crying loudly last night and, to be honest, i haven’t seen his mother addison at home in a few days. Do you think we should keep an eye on them? You know how abusive the boy’s father is darling when we invited addison to a tea party. Last time the man came up to our house and dragged her away he’s such a jerk. I tell you even his son that small boy he’s out of the ordinary.
He hardly ever interacts with other children and he can’t even hold a conversation. Take my advice and stay away from those weirdos, but billy i’m worried about jason. That boy, i’m sure or i believe it was him crying in the middle of the night. Oh dear billy laughed you’re aware that we’re old birds – dear i’m sure it was all in your head if it had been something like that, others would have heard it as well anyway. Two sugar cubes for your tea as usual sally gave a nod.
Oh, i do hope i’m wrong billy and you’re right. She said hoping jason was fine and it was all a figment of her imagination, but she heard the wailing sound again that night this time it seemed louder and sally instantly, dialed billy’s number billy, i’m sure jason is crying again. Let’S go check on him. Please. I feel there’s something wrong: alright, sally calm down, let’s get some people to join us.
I’M concerned we shouldn’t go by ourselves. Ok i’ll meet you at the front door. The elderly woman said before hanging up the phone a few minutes later: sally billy and billy’s next-door neighbors. The andersons arrived at jason’s storm sally. I hate to admit it, but you were right.
Billy said carrie and jake just told me that they overheard some of our neighbors complaining about jason sobbing in the middle of the night. I hope the boy’s okay sally’s heart was racing in her chest. She rang the doorbell several times but got no answer. Jason. Mr barrett, could you please open the door it?
This is mrs peterson sally peterson, your next door. Neighbor again, there was no response, but the crying sound became louder. Jason. Is that you sweetheart? Could you please open the door we’re here to help?
You don’t be afraid? Okay, sally reassured him figuring. The boy was near the door, but he didn’t respond at that point. The neighbors decided to call 9-1-1 around 10 minutes later. What felt like an eternity to sally the cops arrived on the scene officer reed, the chief inspector directed his crew to smash open the door after many unanswered knocks and doorbell rings as the wooden door tumbled to the floor.
They discovered little jason whimpering under the stairwell. Don’T worry, champ we’re all good officer raid reassured the child. He carried jason to the police, car and sally quickly handed him her scarf jason honey, you, okay, where are your mommy and daddy mama mama hospital, daddy’s scary? The boy kept repeating and crying none of the neighbors understood what he was saying, but officer reed quickly discovered the boy had speech issues jason. Could you try to write or draw what you’re saying for us drawing pencil colors?
He said, along with other words that were hard to make out ma’am officer reed said to sally: can we get a plain sheet of paper and a few colored pencils if possible? I guess he’s trying to say something that happened to his parents at that carrie spoke up, saying: she’ll get them quickly. After providing jason with crayons and sheets of paper. He drew a few things that attracted officer ray’s attention: an ambulance, a woman lying in a coffin, a man with his bag, leaving the house officer raid concluded that the man was jason’s father leaving their home and that his mother was most likely dead. However, in order to corroborate this, he thought it best to contact a child specialist.
Therefore, jason was escorted to the police station. After almost eight hours of counseling there, the child therapist, dr carolyn woods, confirmed that officer. Reed’S analysis was correct: jason had overheard his father talking about leaving town for a while, after refusing to pay for addison’s treatment and abandoning her in the hospital to die. These events had a traumatizing effect on jason and he was crying at home because he was scared to be alone and missed his mother. At one point he wanted to talk to his neighbors, but his father had threatened him that he would be dead much like his mother if he revealed anything after the terrifying event, jason was sent to therapy and officer raid frequently checked on him throughout that time.
Meanwhile, his team looked into mr barrett’s whereabouts. After addison’s death was confirmed at a city hospital. The search for mr barrett lasted nearly six months before he was apprehended in mexico. It turns out he and his rich girlfriend were on vacation when they got the news about how he was exposed for killing his wife. He was nothing more than the burden to us that weirdo should have died.
Just like his loser. Mother, she was sick, and so is he he said, mocking his son and late wife in court, but karma caught up with him. After the trial he and his beloved were sentenced to prison, while jason’s life improved dramatically officer reed and his wife were unable to have children adopted and raised the young boy as their own. They also sent him to counseling, which healed his speech problems. You won’t believe it, but jason raid is now a tv presenter for a well-known news channel and every time he sits down and focuses on the camera.
He thanks god for that night, when sally and officer reed came into his life.
