Gets 28 years for starv­ing & tor­tur­ing tot

Globe - - TRUE CRIME -

IN A heart­break­ing hor­ror story, the mean­est mom in Amer­ica starved and abused her step­son un­til the boy re­sem­bled a Nazi death camp sur­vivor!

A Texas judge has sen­tenced mother of seven Tammi Bleimeyer to 28 years in prison — af­ter au­thor­i­ties found se­verely mal­nour­ished Jor­dan Bleimeyer, then five, cov­ered in bumps and bruises.

Prose­cu­tors said the evil woman also forced Jor­dan to wear a di­a­per and locked him in a cramped crawl space un­der the stairs the fam­ily called the Harry Pot­ter room.

Jor­dan, now nine, weighed only 29 pounds when deputies found him in March 2014, af­ter his older brother — who snuck him bread to sur­vive — alerted au­thor­i­ties!

“He was nearly starved to death,” says Har­ris County As­sis­tant Dis­trict At­tor­ney Stephen Driver.

“Doc­tors com­pared his mal­nour­ish­ment to that of a Holo­caust sur­vivor.”

Af­ter Jor­dan was res­cued, he was rushed to a hospi­tal, where a pe­di­a­tri­cian de­ter­mined the tragic tot had suf­fered “se­vere phys­i­cal abuse and ha­bit­ual star­va­tion.”

He could have died within days, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments.

Jor­dan’s older sib­ling told deputies he be­lieved some­one had slammed the young­ster’s head into a wall and stunned him with a Taser.

Prose­cu­tors say Jor­dan was not al­lowed to eat at the din­ner ta­ble with his sib­lings — who were Tammi Bleimeyer’s chil­dren.

He was only given a slice of bread a day, which would be taken away if he didn’t eat it

quickly enough.

Jor­dan’s bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther,

Bradley Bleimeyer, also drugged the boy to keep him quiet, law­men say.

Bradley Bleimeyer, 24, pleaded guilty to caus­ing in­jury to a child by omis­sion in 2016 and was handed a 15-year prison sen­tence.

Tammi Bleimeyer, 37, was found guilty of the same charge on Dec. 6.

Jor­dan is now in the care of his bi­o­log­i­cal mother. Tammi Bleimeyer’s six old­est chil­dren were placed with Child Pro­tec­tive Ser­vices. She was preg­nant when ar­rested and her new­born was put in fos­ter care.

Con­sta­ble Mark Her­man, who was as­sis­tant chief when the in­ves­ti­ga­tion first un­folded, called the crime one of the worst cases of child abuse he’d ever seen.

“There are a few things that will stick with you through your ca­reer in law en­force­ment,” he says. “This is one of them.”
