Police checked the closet in question and found a mattress inside the closet where the 5-year-old was kept. However, stepmother Tammi Bleimeyer and husband Bradley had already left the scene with the boy. They tracked them down and found the boy severely malnourished, wearing a diaper and covered in bumps and bruises. 


As it turns out, the woman is also pregnant and biological mom to not only the teen, but five other children. 


According to KENS 5 in San Antonio, a 30-year veteran of the force had never seen such a situation. He was severely under nourished, bone sticking out, bumps, bruises. His skin was coming off on his back. It's a horrific horrific situation, stated Mark Herman. Both parents have been charged with felony child endangerment. The father, who was already out on probation for another charge has been denied bond and the stepmother of the child was set at $2,000.                                


The child was still in the hospital as of Monday and in custody of CPS.
