Henderson, NV – Police say 33-year-old Edward Colucci didn’t just try to break his girlfriend’s two young sons physically, he also tried to break them emotionally. Colucci was arrested late last month, charged with child abuse, assault and kidnapping, after paramedics and police officers found his girlfriend’s 4-year-old son unconscious in the couple’s apartment. The child was suffering from severe malnutrition – so severe his hair was falling out. Dispatchers say that when the boys’ mother called 911 on November 23, she could be heard telling Colucci, “you went too far.” And she wasn’t fucking kidding. According to police, over the course of a few months, Colucci allowed the boy to eat nothing but dry ramen noodles, garlic cloves and onions. He reportedly spit in the child’s water. When the child’s mother made eye contact with the boy, Colucci reportedly viewed it as showing “too much affection” and punished the kid by punching or kicking him. Police say Colucci bit the boy’s nose, sprayed glass cleaner in his eyes and forced him to eat his own vomit. As stated in the arrest report, the psycho fuck bought presents for the boys, but later bashed their mother’s head into the floor while repeatedly saying “I love you.”
Mom claims she didn’t go to police sooner because Colucci threatened to kill her family and knock her around if she did…so she didn’t. The 4-year-old child was treated for malnutrition, the other boy, who recently turned 5, was hospitalized for severe dehydration. Both boys have been placed in protective custody. Bret Whipple, Colucci’s attorney, says his client is pleading not guilty and “looks forward to his day in court.” Many thanks for the heads-up, Dakota.
