    Two buried kids and an old family ‘curse’

    Some stories sound more like a memory than a revelation.

    That’s how the news struck Israel Pattison in December when he heard two children were found buried behind their home in Effingham County. Pattison is a cousin of the kids’ father, Elwyn Crocker Sr., who now faces murder charges. The dad is accused, along with four co-defendants, of starving and beating JR and Mary Crocker while keeping the young teens in a dog pen.

    Pattison said he recalls witnessing Crocker beaten terribly and demeaned for years when they were kids. Pattison said he doesn’t want to defend his cousin;he’s appalled, disgusted and heartbroken by the allegations against Crocker. Pattison only hopes that revealing – and reckoning with – how the past might relate to the present can help those who mourn JR and Mary understand. He also hopes it can help inform those trying to prevent future tragedies.

    A Georgia father, his wife and two other adults have been arrested after the bodies of two of the man's children were found buried on the property of their home.

    The bodies of Mary Crocker, who has not been seen since October, and her brother, Elwin Crocker Jr., who vanished in November 2016, were found on Dec. 20.
    The day the bodies were found would have been Mary Crocker's 14th birthday; Elwin Crocker Jr. went missing when he was 14 and would be 17 now.

    How awful! Those children were precious! Why haven't we heard about this before?

    I've been following in GA news since bodies were found in December. The generational story in yesterday's paper inspired me to bring it here. What Crocker, wife & inlaws did is inexcusable, but it is true ~ "A child learns what he lives."
