Bullitt County, KY – They packed everything they thought they would need – their birth certificates, a light bulb, a GPS tracking device, hammer, screwdriver, clothes, and a few toys. The children, ages 6 and 10, then hit the road. They made it nearly a quarter mile away from home before a good samaritan picked them up. What were they running from? Their mother’s boyfriend, William Morris. Earlier that day, during a game of hide-n-seek, they got a little rambunctious and loud…Morris got pissed. Pictures taken by officers show exactly how pissed off Morris was. The 6-year-old girl was sportin’ bruises on her leg and a nasty welt on her arm and her 10-year-old brother had a belt mark across his back.
“They said they were running away from home because their mom’s boyfriend had beat them up, beat them with a belt,” said Bullitt County Detective Scotty McGaha. The kids waited until their mother, Kelly Porter, 28, and Morris, 43, went to sleep before they made their escape out a window. The pissed off 10-year-old also told officers that Morris stole $22 from him…money the child had earned from running a lemonade stand, and was saving to go to Disney World. Both children and a younger sibling have been placed with their grandmother.
Kelly Porter and William Morris were arrested on Monday and are now sitting behind bars, each facing charges of wanton endangerment. I had to laugh when I found out that while Porter and Morris were sitting in jail, their home was burglarized! A couple of thieves broke into their home on Tuesday and stole a Wii and a laptop. Ha! Karma. She’s a bitch!
