Christopher Barrios Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard about Christopher Barrios. He’s the 6-year old boy from Brunswick, Georgia, who went missing on March 8. His body was found in a black plastic garbage bag about three miles from his home on March 15.

A week after his disappearance (before the body was found), investigators brought in four people who wound up being arrested. George David Edenfield (32) who has a previous conviction from 1997 involving 7 and 9 year old boys, his father David Edenfield (58) who has a 1994 conviction for incest with an adult male relative (not his son), and his mother Peggy Edenfield. Also arrested was a friend of the family, Donald Dale.

Police announced that the family had murdered the boy, and Dale helped conceal the body. All of them kept giving conflicting stories and misleading officers who were searching for Christopher’s body.

The DA has said he will seek the death penalty against George and his parents, David and Peggy. In addition to sexual abuse and murder, the trio are charged with false imprisonment, cruelty to children and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

Donald Dale, who has admitted to helping dispose of the body, is charged with concealing a death and tampering wtih evidence. Investigators say he was not present when Christopher was abducted, assaulted and murdered.

Edenfield Family These are the last three faces Christopher Barrios saw in his short life.

According to an indictment that was released Wednesday, George and his father David took turns sexually assaulting Christopher, sodomizing him and forcing him to perform oral sex on them while Peggy watched and masturbated. Then, ignoring his complaints that they were hurting him, they choked him to death and threw him out like yesterday’s garbage. – Funeral for 6-Year-Old Christopher Barrios to be Held Thursday; Suspects Took Turns Assaulting Boy | Kate blogs at The Original Musings.
