Wow my son went to the daycare cross the street from them. How stupid can you be. It's sad how Otwell seems to be attracting that trash. It used to be such a nice community.

There is no daycare across the street from them! Kyle happens to come from a very respectful family! He has a Stepfather that would do anything for anyone! A mother that is a sweet as can be, and a sister and brothers that are thought verly highly of. Watch who you call Trash! Otwell has nothing to do with it. no matter what State or City or State you live in something is always going on. That dont mean the rest of the peiple who live there are trash! Who are you to Judge?

I'm sure we don't know the full story. Why 2 diff hospitals? Until facts come to light, can't judge this. Only hope that baby is safe right now and will stay safe!

OTWELL, Ind. An Otwell, Ind., man has been arrested on charges he battered his 3-year-old stepson.
Kyle Humbarger, 24, was arrested by Indiana State Police on felony battery and neglect counts after the boy was treated at an Indianapolis hospital for a facial fracture. He was released from the hospital on Monday.
Humbarger's wife, 19-year-old Ashley Humbarger (the injured boy's mother), also was arrested for neglect.
According to a news release from the Indiana State Police, the Humbargers took the 3-year-old to a Jasper, Ind., hospital on Feb. 17 because of an injury. Investigators say the couple removed the child form the hospital "against the advice of medical personnel," according to the news release.
The next day, the Humbargers took the boy to a hospital in Washington, Ind., from which he was taken by helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis;;;;;;;;;;;this explains why so many Hospitals.and I agree with Bob.

Whoever is judging these comments with peanuts and clueless, must be seriously stupid. Kids are defenseless and for someone to defend anyone who harms them, to me they are just as guilty.
