Khalil Wimes Follow Up

Khalil Wimes Khalil Wimes was a six year old boy who died on March 19th, 2012 from horrific abuse and neglect over the course of many years at the hands of his birth parents. He had been given to his cousin's care when he was one week old, where he thrived under her love. Then, for reasons nobody understands, he was returned to his birth family—a couple who had already had seven children removed from their care.

DCS monitored him for one year, and according to Khalil's older sisters, the abuse started right after they stopped monitoring him. In the end, it took the medical examiner over an hour to describe all of the scars and injuries that poor Khalil endured. He weighed just 29 pounds—basically the weight of a two year old. He had a Muslim burial—attended by his loving foster mother, Alicia Nixon, and his grandmother, LaReine Nixon.
