Authorities think they have found the body of a young child under the
shed of a house that belongs to a couple accused of child abuse,
according to the Daily Press.
Police arrested Shannon and Brian Gore last night and charged them with criminal child abuse, the report said.
They found the body around 8:30 p.m. Friday. The body was taken to the medical examiner’s office in Richmond.
The sheriff’s office originally went to the Gores’ home Thursday night to investigate a burglary.
They found the Gores' young daughter trapped inside a crib, naked and covered in feces, according to the report.

Sources tell a story of sick, twisted child abuse that was discovered and ended
all in the same night. Police were poking around a neighborhood in
Hayes, Virginia searching for information on some burglaries that had
occurred. While in the neighborhood, the police knocked on the door of
25-year old Shannon Gore. Gore, who lived with her husband Brian, shared
a home with their children. However, it was more than obvious which
child was favored by the parents.

Police found the infant son of Shannon and Brian Gore in perfect, healthy
condition, but they found their 5-year old daughter in horrible shape.
The child was kept in a makeshift cage that had been fashioned out of a
crib and plywood. She was malnourished, terribly underweight and was
covered in fecal matter. The child was starving to death. The despicable
parents of this poor, neglected child were promptly arrested for gross
child abuse and neglect and the children were immediately removed from the home.

But that isn't the end of this twisted story.
The police returned to the home the following day to do some followup
searching of the premises. Well, they weren't prepared to find out that
this property was much more than a scene of child neglect. It is now a
crime scene because while they were searching the backyard they found
the body of a young child buried in a shallow grave. The age, gender or
anything else about the child has not been released by law enforcement.

The image is grainy and the audio isn't clear, but what's happening is unmistakable.

Brian Gore had just proposed to his girlfriend, Shannon N. Smith, at a
crowded restaurant. She covered her mouth and nose with her hands as
cameras flashed. She took the ring and placed it on her finger.

Then she and Gore, who were charged Friday with penning a malnourished
young girl in their Gloucester County mobile home, locked in a long
embrace.

The video, uploaded less than three years ago on Gore's MySpace
page on the Internet, shows the couple before authorities made the
startling discovery last week while investigating an unrelated burglary.

The girl was found under a crib that had been modified into a cage. The
situation took a grisly turn hours later when Gloucester County
sheriff's deputies unearthed what they say are the remains of another
child buried outside the home.

The girl found inside the home, believed to be 5 or 6 years old, is being cared for at Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters
in Norfolk. An infant boy was also taken from the couple and did not
need to be hospitalized. Authorities have not yet identified the
remains.

Deputies jailed Brian and Shannon Gore, who were both charged with
felony child abuse, while Shannon Gore was also charged with attempted
capital murder.

Family members of the couple did not open their doors to reporters nor
did they answer telephone calls on Sunday. But details of the Gores are
emerging through talks with neighbors, co-workers, and what's available
on the Internet.

Brian Gore's MySpace page, which is open to public viewing, shows a
smiling photo of him and Shannon — a stark contrast to the mug shots
released Friday by deputies.

Images uploaded between 2008 and 2009 indicate that he is a car buff who favored Ford Mustangs. According to information from Facebook, he graduated from Gloucester High School in 2000. Deputies say he is 29.

Shannon Gore, 25, worked at the fast food restaurant Bojangles on Route
17 in Yorktown for about two years, employees said. She has been on
maternity leave since the birth of a son about four weeks ago.

Like the Gores' neighbors at the mobile home park, Bojangles employees
said they did not know anything about the young girl found in the mobile
home. Shannon Gore visited the restaurant a few days ago with her
infant son, employees said.

Her MySpace page is decorated with red hearts and contains an ultrasound
image of a developing baby. The webpage, which indicates she last
accessed the account on April 23, includes a list of popular songs sung
by Ciara, Pink, and others.

In the upper right corner is the statement: "I am who I am your opinion isn't needed."

A Gloucester man is again behind bars after authorities found the remains of a young child buried near a shed at his home.

Brian Gore, a 29-year-old resident of Waterview Mobile Home Park, was
jailed Saturday on unspecified charges, according to the Gloucester
County Sheriff's Department.

He and his wife, Shannon, were
charged Friday with felony child abuse after deputies found a nude young
girl covered in feces and trapped in a crib that had been modified to
form a cage. Shannon Gore was also charged with attempted capital
murder. On Friday she was being held at Gloucester County Jail.

Brian Gore had posted $1,500 bail on
Friday. But deputies re-arrested him after finding the remains of the
child. The age, gender and identity of the remains is unknown, pending
tests by the state Medical Examiner's Office.

Virginia girl found eating herself in cage in mobile home; parents Brian and Shannon Gore charged


Wednesday, May 4th 2011, 9:54 AM




Gloucester Sheriff's Dept.

Brian Gore, 29, and Shannon Gore, 25, face child abuse and murder charges.

A young girl was found caged and attempting to eat herself in a mobile home in Virginia, and cops say her parents are responsible.

The malnourished girl, believed to be either 5 or 6, was discovered in a crib that was converted into a makeshift cage after police arrived at the home in Gloucester County to investigate a burglary last week.

The girl's parents, Brian and Shannon Gore, were arrested and charged with felony child abuse. The mother was also charged with attempted capital murder.

However, the gruesome twosome now faces first-degree murder charges after the remains of what authorities believe to be another child were found buried outside their mobile home.

"I've done this for 20 years, and I've never seen anything like this in my life," Gloucester Sheriff's Maj. Darrell Warren said.

A month-old baby boy was also found in the home, but was in good condition. Both he and the older girl are now in the care of the county Department of Social Services.

The horrific find came as police investigated a robbery on April 17.
A child's remains were found buried outside the Gores' home. (WTKR)

A nearby homeowner reported his house was broken into and claimed gold bullion, a vacuum cleaner, a passport, $2,000 in cash and other items had been stolen, according to a police report.

Investigators trailed the bullion to an auction house, which claimed to have bought the gold from 25-year-old Shannon Gore.

Authorities arrived at her mobile home in Gloucester with a search warrant when they made the shocking discovery.

The girl's blond-hair was matted and filled with knots. She wore only a diaper and t-shirt and was eating flakes of dried skin on her body.

Brian Gore, 29, reportedly told police the girl had been kept in the cage since the summer.

"It was horrific. I don't know what else to say," Lt. Scott Little of the Sheriff's Department told Virginia's Daily Press on Friday.

"They seemed like nice people," neighbor Tim Hudnall told the newspaper. He noted he had seen the baby boy, but never saw a girl with the Gores in the six years they've been neighbors.

"He was really a nice guy," Brian Gore's ex-girlfriend, Sandy, told WTKR 3 News in Norfolk. "He went to church and everything."

Deputies discovered the child's remains while digging under and around a shed at the mobile home Friday evening. The age, gender and identity of the remains are not known, pending an examination by the state Medical Examiner's Office.

The Gores are being held in prison as authorities determine how the child died. An autopsy report by the state medical examiner is pending.

If these scumbags were not also thieves the little girl would have also ended up dead. My God, she was eating her own flesh and dried blood. The murder would likely also have gone undiscovered.

Every case is horrible, but some are unbelievable. It's beyond comprehension. If they didn't want the other children why didn't they give them up for adoption? How can children be suffering like this for years under everyone's noses? Family members have a lot of questions to answer. If anyone knew about this and didn't speak up they should rot in jail without food as well. Look at their photo's. They both look like they couldn't care less. They look defiant. What animals. I hope they suffer for what they did. Disgusting pigs!

U.S. police rescued a disabled six-year-old who was kept in a cage by her parents for months and almost starved to death.
The girl, who has Down syndrome, was eating the flaky skin of her
forehead when she was found by Virginia police, Mail Online reported.
Her parents were also accused of burying another child of their own. They face charges of first degree murder.
Brian and Shannon Gore, the parents, allegedly locked their daughter
up to "protect" her. She was born at home with no medical help, and did
not even have a birth certificate. Therefore, even the neighbors did not
know about the abuse or the buried child. She is assumed to be between 5
and 6.
The naked girl was nearly starving to death and attempted to eat some
of her own skin . The police said that it was one of the worst cases of
child abuse they had seen, according to the Daily Mail.
She was only given one or two Pop Tarts a day.
Naked and covered in feces, she was not even able to walk.
The police found out about the tragedy while investigating for burglaries.
There was another 1-month-old baby at the site, but he was in good
condition. The girl is now being treated at Children's Hospital of the
Kings Daughters, while the boy is at Gloucester Department of Social
Services.http://news.asiaone.com/News/AsiaOne%2BNews/Crime/Story/A1Story20110505-277261.html

A single-wide trailer, home to Brian and Shannon Gore and two of
their children, including one little girl kept in a makeshift cage in a
darkened bedroom, has been sold and was moved Tuesday off its lot in a
Hayes area mobile home park.The trailer move followed the removal
on Saturday of a shed next to the Gores' trailer. Investigators had
found a box containing the remains of a child under the shed.Brian
Gore, 29, and Shannon Gore, 24, each face charges of first-degree
murder, attempted capital murder and child abuse charges in connection
with the discovery of the emaciated little girl penned in a modified
crib and the remains of the small child. They are being held in the
Gloucester County Jail.The Gores rented a space for their trailer on Carrie Lane in Waterview Mobile Home Park off of Brays Point Road.Gloucester
Sheriff's Maj. Darrell Warren said his office was notified that the
trailer had been sold and the new owners intended to move it. The
removal of the trailer does not compromise the Gloucester Sheriff's
Office criminal investigation, he said."We were finished with it," Warren said.Investigators
stumbled upon the caged girl on April 28 during a routine burglary
investigation into stolen property that was traced to Shannon Gore. The
remains of the child were found the following evening.The girl, found naked, starving and covered in her own feces, is at Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters in Norfolk. Warren said her condition has been upgraded to stable.Investigators
are awaiting the results of an investigation of the remains by the
state Medical Examiner's Office. Warren said those results have not been

GLOUCESTER—

A lot of personal possession were seized from the Gore home and now are in the hands of investigators.
April 28th is when the child abuse case began. It's a case that has brought the Gloucester County community to a halt.
A laundry list of evidence was removed from the mobile home of Shannon and Brian Gore.

The home itself where Shannon and Brian Gore lived as well as
their young daughter who was nearly starved to death and reduced to
essentially skin and bones was living is key in this case.

The trailer has since been cleared by the sheriff's office and sold.

NewsChannel 3 did some digging and found that both the owner of the
trailer which is the father of suspect Brian Gore played a hand in the
deal.

NewsChannel 3 was told Owens housing center of Gloucester County was
told by Brian's father to move the trailer out of the mobile home park
at the advice of the mobile home park owner.

Today we attempted to get an idea of where it was moved to or who bought it, but Owens reps refused to answer our questions.

In the May 4, 2011 search warrant 31 items were seized from the Gore's
home including electronics, a child's mattress, some clothes but what
stands out is the amount of pictures.

A copy of the search warrant that NewsChannel 3 obtained mention 11
stand alone photos were seized from the mobile home as well as a packet
of newly developed film.

Professional pictures from a company that is known to take family photos as well as four disposable cameras.

NewsChannel 3 also told you about an escape attempt by Shannon Gore from
Riverside Walter Reed hospital before the murder and child abuse
charges were filed and before she and her husband Brian were arrested
for any of this.

During that attempt court records told us that Shannon attempted to throw away a purse in a drop ceiling at the hospital.

In that purse was another digital camera that was also taken in for evidence.

The state is building its case around the husband and wife couple that has shocked the Gloucester community and the world.

Shannon and Brian Gore were moved to the Norfolk Jail. They were moved their because of concern for their safety.

They are charged with child abuse along with killing their other child.

Highland Park couple charged with murder in 4-year-old's starving death

Highland Park— A Highland Park couple caring for a 4-year-old
nephew who starved to death were charged today with murder, torture and
child abuse. Randy Steven Gardner, 32, solemnly answered "Yes,"
when asked by 30th District Judge Bridgette Officer if he understood the
charges of premeditated first-degree murder, felony murder, torture and
first-degree child abuse. His wife, Matilda Jane Brown Gardner, 30,
shook her head in disagreement as the judge read the charges against
her.

"Yes, but I didn't do anything," Matilda Gardner told the judge.

They are accused of killing Robert Byrd, a nephew whose custody they
had taken in 2009 after his mother died and his father went to prison.
The boy was found dead in their home on Mother's Day. He was 3
feet, 1 inch tall and weighed 24 pounds, said the Wayne County Medical
Examiner's Office. Extensive bruises on the boy's body suggest he might
have been abused in other ways, Highland Park Police said. The
murder charges carry mandatory sentences of life without parole. The
third is punishable by up to life in prison, and the fourth by up to 15
years in prison. The judge ordered both held in the Wayne County Jail
without bond until a May 24 preliminary examination of the evidence
against them. Five other children stayed at the home in the 200
block of California Street but were apparently unhurt, authorities said.
One was the 6-year-old brother of the victim, and the others are the
Gardners' four sons. All five children have been removed from the home. Robert
Byrd and his brother, Anthony Byrd Jr., moved in with the Gardners in
2009 when their father, Anthony Byrd Sr., 31, was jailed for nine months
for felonious assault. Anthony Byrd said he was unable to regain
custody after his release. The boys' mother, Theresa Brown, died from a brain aneurysm in 2007. Connie
Brown, the eldest sister of Matilda Gardner and Theresa Brown, joined
other family members in front of the court after the arraignment. "I no longer have a sister," she said. "The family is done with both Matilda and Randy."

Kiwi, we always agree on these things. This is so horrible as to be incomprehensible. Why, why, why did they not give these precious children up for adoption.

There are so many childless couples who would love to have a precious child to lavish love and attention upon.

Yet still, these scumbags keep murdering them. In the most inhumane ways imaginable.

Something is wrong with a society where children can be abused and murdered in such horrendous ways under everyone's noses and nothing is done to stop it or prevent it.

Mother not home when child died

Court document states dad was home


Monday, 16 May 2011, 6:58 PM EDT

GLOUCESTER COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) - Shannon and
Brian Gore are accused of keeping their 6-year-old daughter in a crib
made into a cage for the better part of a year. They are also accused of
killing a 7-month-old boy in 2007. That child's tragic story is now
coming into focus. This has become one of the saddest and most bizarre
cases of alleged child neglect in recent years. The court
document WAVY.com found is a narrative of the interview the Gloucester
County Sheriff's Office investigator had with Brian Gore. Upon further
examination of that document copied and found in other court papers, the
narrative changed. The investigator's name was added, and another
paragraph was added too. In fact, it was only after a second interview
with Brian Gore that investigators went back out to the Gore's mobile
home and dug up a wooden box containing human remains. Both Brian
and Shannon Gore are charged with first degree murder, but Shannon
Gore's attorney made it clear she was not home when the 7-month-old born
in 2007 died. "Ms. Gore was not present when that child died, and these court documents substantiate that," said Ron Smith. In
the court documents, the Gloucester Sheriff's Office investigator
wrote, "Mr. Gore stated that when the child was approximately seven
months old and in his care, he began to have breathing difficulties. Mr.
Gore did not summon medical attention, thus resulting in the child's
death." Shannon Gore's Attorney Ron Smith responded to that.
"These documents support a mother [Shannon Gore] who came home and found
her 7-month-old baby dead. She had no one to go to because of the lies
she was leading because there was no child," said Smith. That
7-month-old died before the 6-year-old was discovered in the crib. The
Gores had those two children and then had another one born in March of
this year. One of the big questions, why did Shannon Gore hide the fact she was pregnant twice? "It's
something that doesn't make much sense really...she wasn't married. She
didn't want her parents and family to know she was pregnant," Smith
said. We've showed you inside the mobile home
where the Gore's 6-year-old was kept iIn her own feces, fed Pop-Tarts
twice a day. Smith said something happened to Shannon Gore after the
death of her son. "I want to emphasize this," Ron Smith said. "I
am not trying to excuse any kind of behavior. Something happened to my
client, mentally and emotionally after the loss of this child." The
Gores remain in the Norfolk City Jail without bond. Shannon Gore's
defense team has hired a psychiatrist to examine her determining what
effect the death of the 7-month-old had on her that triggered everything
else that came after that including the felony child neglect she's
accused of with her 6-year-old. We called CHKD to check on how
the Gore's little girl is doing. Doctors told WAVY.com she is currently
in stable condition. The 2-month-old is now in foster care and had no
signs of neglect.http://www.wavy.com/dpp/news/local_news/mother-not-home-when-child-died

I don't buy that crap. I believe the baby was murdered. The way the other child was treated supports the supposition that the dead child was not proper cared for, not properly fed, most certainly not properly loved, and very likely murdered. JMO.

Reminds me of Baez claiming his client's innocence and telling us we would understand when all the facts were presented. Yeah, right.

This rural community isn't used to making headlines, especially the kind it's had lately.
First, there was the tornado, a vicious twister that killed two
people, wrecked a school and destroyed dozens of homes less than two
months ago.
And now this, perhaps the worst case of child abuse ever in these
parts - one that speaks volumes about what can hide behind closed doors.
On April 28, deputies checking a home for stolen goods discovered a naked, starving little girl inside a filthy, makeshift cage.
Under a shed nearby, they found the remains of a baby.
Magnifying the eeriness: no record that either child even existed.
"We've never seen a case quite like this," said Betty Wade Coyle,
executive director of Prevent Child Abuse Hampton Roads, a volunteer
group based in Norfolk.
Gloucester seems an unlikely spot for such horrors - a landscape of
forests and farm fields sliced by Route 17, strung together by tiny
towns with names like "Ordinary."
Drivers recognize the area best as a place they're passing through, a
blur of antique shops, big yards and convenience stores on the north
side of the Coleman Bridge, the tall span that arches over the York
River.
But at the end of a long shady lane, just past a weathered "Waterview
Mobile Home Park" sign, inside a blue-and-white trailer with an
American flag and pink azaleas outside, something ugly went on for a
long time.
"We don't know how long this child was left like that," said Wade
Coyle of the caged girl, whose name is Allison, "but it appears to be
extreme long-term neglect, maybe for her whole life."
It's uncertain how many years that might be. Now in the care of
Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters in Norfolk, Allison is
estimated to be 6 years old, but like the baby buried in the trailer's
yard, she has no birth certificate.
"Everyone is shocked," said Christina Edwards, who lives across the street from the trailer. "It's just... sick."
Up until a few weeks ago, the trailer was home to Brian and Shannon
Gore. Both have longtime roots in the area and no record of trouble with
the law. Shannon, 25, worked at the Bojangles restaurant in nearby
Yorktown. Brian, 29, listed his occupation as "HVAC Service Tech" on a
Gloucester High School reunion website.
On a video posted to their Myspace pages, the Gores look like any
other young couple. It was taken in 2008 on Shannon's birthday, the day
Brian got down on one knee and proposed to her in a crowded restaurant.
Shannon beams, hugs Brian and admires her new ring. Family and friends
ooh, ahh and applaud.
But behind that happy moment, the couple already had dark secrets:
two children, both born at home, with no medical assistance. One was
hidden away; the other was buried in the yard - dead from causes that,
so far, remain a mystery.
Ron Smith, one of Shannon Gore's attorneys, has told media that the
couple concealed the pregnancies because they weren't married, though no
one has explained how they hid Shannon's swollen belly in small-town
Gloucester.
What is known is that the couple married in 2009 and had a third
child they didn't conceal. Video taken inside their trailer shows a
nursery decorated with monkeys and warm yellow walls. On Myspace, Brian
Gore described himself as a "Proud parent" and Shannon Gore gushed with
anticipation before giving birth this past March: "Five more weeks!...
mommy is so ready!"
Edwards, who has three kids of her own, said the couple strolled the
neighborhood with their new baby, who appeared well-cared for.
"I didn't know either of them very well," Edwards said, "but she sent
over bottles and pacifiers when my baby was born, and I'd see him out
cutting the grass. They seemed like nice people. I'd wave to them."
Despite the thin walls and cramped space of trailer park living,
"None of us knew they had a daughter," Edwards said. "We never heard her
cry or anything. Not even people who've been inside their house."
It all came to light when a burglary investigation led Gloucester
detectives to the Gores' trailer. Shannon Gore was suspected of selling
about an ounce of stolen gold to an auction house - bars of bullion that
had been swiped from a home in the county.
Deputies stumbled upon Allison inside a darkened bedroom, caged
within an upside-down crib that was weighted down by heavy boxes. She
was nude and covered in her own feces. Her curly blond hair was matted
and patchy, her body so thin bones were visible through her flesh.
From the pages of a search warrant: "The child was eating flakes of skin that were falling off her."
"She weighed 15 pounds," said Robert Hicks, Gloucester's commonwealth's attorney. "Can you imagine what that looks like?"
When questioned about the girl's condition, the Gores told deputies
that she suffers from Down syndrome and cerebral palsy. Letting her out
of the cage, they said, caused "too much turmoil" in the household. They
were arrested after they were unable to produce any medication for the
girl or her birth certificate.
Down at the station, the couple's stories began to differ.
According to Shannon Gore, Allison is less than 3 years old, was
under a doctor's care, had been in the cage for about two months and was
never left alone.
According to Brian Gore, Allison was regularly left alone in the
house, and no one except he and his wife knew the girl existed. Her
birth had never been registered, and she had been penned inside the cage
since last summer, put there because Shannon didn't want to explain to
people where the child came from.
For food, Brian Gore said, a Pop-Tart was placed in Allison's cage
each morning. Another one, or a sandwich, was given to her in the
evenings, along with some milk.
He said that while Allison could no longer stand up, she had once
been able to - back before she was confined in a space that was so
small, her heels were constantly pressed against her buttocks, leaving
red sores.
"We're pretty sure she's 6 years old," Hicks said. "You can't believe anything the parents say."
Eventually, Brian Gore told detectives about the couple's other
hush-hush child, a baby he said was born at home in 2007 but stopped
breathing when it was 2 weeks old, a detail that later changed to 7
months old.
Gore said the baby couldn't be revived, despite his attempts at CPR.
"After much discussion," he said, he put the baby's body in a wooden
box, dug a hole beneath a backyard shed and buried it.
Deputies armed with shovels found little more than a skeleton,
narrowing the chances that the medical examiner's office in Richmond can
pinpoint the cause of death. An anthropologist has been called in to at
least help determine how long the remains have been buried.
In the meantime, the Gores have been charged with a variety of
crimes, including murder - which prosecutors know will be tough to prove
without help from an autopsy. Their next hearing is scheduled for Aug.
2.
Until then, the couple is being held without bond in Norfolk, moved
there because Gloucester's small jail doesn't have many isolation cells,
and prisoners accused of child abuse tend to be targets of jailhouse
justice.
"Nobody threatened them," said Darrell Warren, Gloucester's chief
deputy, "but we were a little leery about putting them in with the
general population. Norfolk was gracious enough to help us out."
Brian Gore's attorney did not respond to requests for comment.
Matthew Ballard, one of Shannon Gore's attorneys, said mental illness
will be at the heart of her defense. A psychiatrist has been tapped to
evaluate her.
"There's no indication that she's responsible for the child's death,"
Ballard said, but there's reason to believe she changed after it
happened. Ballard said he has evidence that Shannon Gore once took
proper care of Allison.
"We have numerous photos that certainly show a loving and caring
mother and a healthy child," he said. "Olan Mills-type pictures.
Christmas pictures. It's obvious that something snapped."
Even if that's true, said a child abuse expert, it doesn't explain
everything. Allison had two parents - both present and, by all
appearances, functioning normally outside the home.
"And what about the hidden pregnancies?" asked Viola Vaughan-Eden,
who has spent 20 years working in Hampton Roads, evaluating more than a
thousand abuse cases and testifying in more than 400.
In all those other cases, she said, "at least people knew those children existed. That's what makes this case so bizarre."
As for Allison, whether or not she has the handicaps her parents say
she has, "This little girl is going to have some severely profound
psychological, neurological and cognitive functioning issues,"
Vaughan-Eden said.
The level of neglect she experienced is difficult to overcome,
especially when it occurs at a young age, when the window for learning
and socialization is open the widest.
"Even when you place those children in a nurturing environment,"
Vaughan-Eden said, "it takes years to catch up. Some are never able to."
CHKD won't release any information on Allison, other than to say that her condition has been upgraded from guarded to stable.
"I've heard she's just so afraid that no one can get close to her,"
said Wade Coyle. "It reminds me of those stories about feral children."
It may never be completely clear what happened inside the blue-and-white trailer.
"There are no easy answer to any of these cases," Vaughan-Eden said.
Instead, there's usually a cocktail of contributing causes, like
mental illness, abusive childhoods, a lack of education and others, she
said: "How all these factors converge in any one family's life, you
never know."
At a crossroads near the trailer park, an impromptu memorial
testifies to the shock and sadness felt by the Gloucester community.
Three small white crosses - one for each Gore child - are surrounded by a
jumble of silk flowers, stuffed animals and the stubs of burnt candles,
evidence of a vigil held by locals after they heard the news.
Inside the trailer park, only a bare rectangle remains where the
Gores once lived. The blue-and-white trailer has been hauled away. The
couple's infant son, found to be in good condition, was taken into
protective custody. Even the family dog - which also appeared healthy -
has been rounded up and carted off by animal control.
Across the street, Edwards shooed her kids back toward her own
trailer and looked over her shoulder at the empty lot edged with
azaleas. She pondered how such a terrible thing could go on right under
the noses of so many. The trailer park's manager lives less than 20 feet
from where the Gores did.
"We're all just left wondering," she said, "what in the world?"

An unmarried pregnancy would shame them but murdering and torturing babies is OK with them.

'Caged girl' case postponed for months
Gores to appear in court Dec. 13

11:56 a.m. EDT, August 2, 2011
Those interested in hearing testimony about how a girl came to be caged and emaciated in a Gloucester mobile home will have to wait several more months.

The initial court appearance of Brian and Shannon Gore has been postponed until Dec. 13 to give prosecutors and defense attorneys more time to prepare for the case, according to court records.

The pair were scheduled to make their first court appearance on several felony charges Tuesday in Gloucester Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, but attorneys secured the postponement last week.

The December court appearance should lead to the transmission of charges to a grand jury, which will decide whether the couple should be tried for murder in circuit court.

The Gores have remained jailed since their arrests in April, though they were moved to the Norfolk City Jail in May due to the limited number of isolation cells in the Gloucester County Jail, where they had been, and concerns for their safety if they were housed in general population. They will be tried in Gloucester.

Brian Gore faces two felony charges of abuse and neglect of a child while Shannon Gore faces a single felony charge of abuse and neglect of a child. The girl was found emaciated, covered in filth and eating flakes of her own peeling skin when Gloucester deputies happened upon her during a routine burglary investigation on April 28.

Both are also charged with first-degree murder in connection with human remains unearthed on their property by Gloucester Sheriff's investigators.

Caged girl released from hospital
Girl from Gloucester in care of family out of area


1:47 p.m. EDT, August 11, 2011

GLOUCESTER — A 6-year-old girl who was found in a makeshift cage in a Gloucester trailer in April has been released from Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters in Norfolk and is living with a family.

Lt. Scott Little of the Gloucester Sheriff's Office said on Thursday that the girl is still recovering and her long-term prognosis has not been determined at this time.

She is in the custody of the state Department of Social Services and has been placed with a family out of the area, he said.

The girl is the daughter of Brian and Shannon Gore, who are facing multiple felony charges in connection with abusive treatment of the girl as well as the death of an infant sibling in 2007. Their trial in Gloucester Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court is Dec. 13.

A Gloucester couple is scheduled to
be in court Tuesday morning. Shannon Gore and her husband Brian Gore are
facing charges of murder and child abuse.
Deputies searched the couples house
back in April in connection to a robbery when they discovered a young
girl with down syndrome, extremely malnourished and locked in a cage.

Authorities later searched under the Gore's shed where they found the remains of another child, badly decomposed.
