Million Dollar Settlement After Tragic Kansas Youngster's Death

Warning . . .

The deets here are important but also very sad, disturbing and soul crushing whilst the money doesn't really make this situation any better given that so many more Kansas youngsters remain at risk with very little interest or progress in improving the social safety net . . . Here's the word:

"Gov. Laura Kelly and top leaders of the Kansas Legislature approved the settlement during a brief public meeting Tuesday after conferring with state Attorney General Kris Kobach’s top deputy in private for 30 minutes. The lawsuit was filed in 2017 in Wyandotte County in the Kansas City area by the boy’s mother, maternal grandmother and adult sister, and a district court trial was scheduled for April 2025.

"The boy, Adrian Jones, was living with his father, Michael Jones, and his stepmother, Heather Jones, in Kansas City, Kansas, when he died. Both are serving 25 years-to-life prison sentences for his murder, and authorities said the boy was beaten and locked naked in a shower stall for months as a closed-circuit surveillance camera recorded his deteriorating condition."
