Laura Ingraham Questions Release of Parents Charged Over Boy's Body in Freezer

Fox News personality Laura Ingraham has questioned the decision to release a couple on bail following the discovery of the body of a young boy in a freezer on their property.

Kassceen and Dina D. Weaver were arrested after the body was found in Chesterfield, Virginia due to a tip-off in May. The boy was later identified as Eliel Adon Weaver, who was less than five years old and whose body was likely in the freezer from two to five years.

Ingraham took to Twitter on Friday to share a New York Post article about the incident which noted that the pair were released on bond and are due to appear in court on August 5.

"Released?" Ingraham tweeted, before quoting from the NY Post on the issue. She is the host of Fox News' The Ingraham Angle.

The Weavers have been charged with conspiracy to conceal a body and failing to render aid to a child, while Kassceen Weaver has also been charged with domestic assault and malicious wounding of a woman known to him.

The couple's release was reported by The Richmond Times-Dispatch on June 30. The newspaper said that court documents alleged Kassceen Weaver had wrapped up the body and placed it in the freezer.

The tip-off reportedly came from Dina Weaver's brother, who had spoken to her about her home life and told police on May 4 he believed his sister was suffering domestic violence.

According to a criminal complaint filed at Chesterfield Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, Dina Weaver told her brother "that police were not called for [the boy's] death due to his body having bruising."

She initially denied she had experienced domestic abuse when questioned by detectives but "later admitted that for the past 5 years, Kassceen had been acting erratic and she was concerned for her wellbeing," according to the complaint.

Police found the human remains in a freezer in a garage at the couple's home in Lookout Point Circle near Woodlake, Virginia. The boy's exact age and cause of death have not been yet been determined but the body has been sent to the state medical examiner's office and an investigation is ongoing.

Chesterfield Police Major Mike Louth spoke to WTKR about the case, saying: "This isn't your typical type of investigation.

"We have human remains that had been in a freezer for approximately a year and a half to two years. So you know, we needed to have an autopsy done, and they worked really well with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. They brought in some specialists, some forensic anthropologists to help us out on this," Louth said.

"This is the first time I've seen anything like this. It's a heartbreaking case to observe. It's a difficult case for anybody to have to work," he added.

Newsweek has asked Chesterfield Police for comment.
