Jacky Tran Doesn’t Like Demons

Jacky and Phung Tran

Houston, TexasWe recently posted a blurb about Jacky Tran in a recent edition of the Daily Bite, but because new information has been released, I felt the story deserved a full front page write-up.

Jacky and Phung Tran beat the bejesus out of their 3-year-old son because they believed the little guy had been invaded by demons.

Deputies were dispatched to the Tran’s home Saturday, after a security alarm sounded. Upon arrival, officers could hear Buddhist chants blaring through the open windows of the home. Through an upstairs window, Jacky could be seen repeatedly punching something with his fist, and during a lull in the chanting, officers could hear the sound of a child screaming.

Once inside the home, they found Phung in the bathroom, trying to clean the badly beaten and bloody child. She kept repeating, ‘there are demons in the child.’ The little guy was unresponsive…his head swollen and maroon colored. His eyes were swollen shut. Medics rushed the child to the hospital, where he is being treated for multiple skull fractures. He is expected to survive.

Jacky believes his son’s body was invaded by demons after the child ate a piece of meat. On Sunday, he told relatives that he didn’t hit the child, he ‘simply knocked the demon out of him.’ Hey Jacky, I think I might know a few Demons who’d like to have a word with you. These Demons fight back though…like a motherfucker!

Jacky’s relatives say the devout Buddhist had never shown any tendencies toward violence. Thuba To, Tran’s cousin-in-law, says, ‘He’s a very nice person, a very responsible husband, a good person. I think he’s run into a problem with psychology.’ Jacky asked his relatives to take care of his wife and children while he was in jail, but he expects to be out in just a few days. Uh-huh.

Jacky’s neighbors describe him as one of the friendliest people in the neighborhood. He was known for helping others in the neighborhood after Hurricane Ike. They also describe some weird shit going on in the Tran household within the last week. On Wednesday, Jacky was seen carrying a Buddhist statue into his home. The next day, he started throwing furniture out into the front and back yard. ‘He threw everything out,’ neighbor Abdul Badat said. ‘Even valuable things, because he says they’re evil.’

On Friday, Jacky told Badat that he had buried the Buddhist statue in a cemetary. It, too, was possessed by a demon. Everything in the home was tainted…yes, even the furniture.

Just last week, Jacky decided to become a vegetarian. He ate nothing but fruits and vegetables for days. Thuba To said, ‘He’s been Buddhist for many years, but not like this.’

Neighbors heard a ruckus coming from Jacky’s home on Saturday. They could hear the sound of someone being spanked and Jacky yelling, ‘Get out! Get out!’ Nobody called 911. Authorities were only notified after an alarm sounded in the Tran home. The alarm security company called Badat, who was listed as the emergency contact, and he advised them to send law enforcement. Badat said Saturday’s nights events were ‘incredibly strange.’ I would say there was a whole ‘lotta strange going on for about a week.

Jacky Tran, 35, is being held on $100,000 bond and facing charges of child abuse causing serious bodily injury. Phung Tran, 36, was arrested on Monday and is being charged with injury to a child as well. Her entire role in the beating isn’t clear, but authorities do believe she hit the kid with a stick. Her bond has not been set. CPS took custody of the Tran’s 6-year-old daughter. She has been placed in a foster home pending an emergency custody hearing.

Kalehue is all over this one in the forums.
