Based on the report released by Law and Crime, Camille Rechae Lewis-mother, and John Lawrence Miles-stepfather who was reported tortured, buried, dug up, and burned their 11-year-old son.
A couple in Oklahoma was already accused of starving and beating their kids and have been charged with killing their 11-year-old son who was lost in 2021.
Primary Investigation Leads
Lewis and Miles were previously charged with child abuse and child neglect because of torturing and causing injuries to their kids. Reports started when the grandmother of the grandchildren Orlando Hugger Jr., an 11-year-old grandson and 13-year-old granddaughter whose name was not publicly released, reported the missing grandson and sexually abused granddaughter according to a news release from Tulsa.
In an interview with the 13-year-old girl, their mother and stepfather regularly abused and torture them. Beating and locking them in the closets and letting them starve for days. They were forced to urinate and excrete in a bag or cup because they were locked inside the closet. Her stepfather would offer her food in exchange for sexual favors. Her mother told her that her brother died. When he had a seizure, they did not bring him to the hospital because they did not want them to be in trouble.
Suspect’s Answer to the Accusations
In August 2021, after Orlando’s supposed death, Lewis told her daughter that her stepfather, together with his cousin, buried the body of her brother in a park, dug the body up, and burned the remains in a barrel, and threw away the ashes down a storm drain as reported to the police. Lewis was under police custody since February 7 and she admitted to them the abuse and torture they have done to their children.
According to Orlando Sr., father of Orlando Hugger Jr., he was the one who took care of their son before, until Lewis who had Orlando’s custody. Lewis restricted Orlando Sr. from seeing his son since 2019 for no particular reason. He tried to report a missing person and seek help from the Department of Human Services but all the efforts were nothing. As reported to Tulsa Fox affiliate KOKI-TV.
