The boy, Cameron Hoopingarner, was in cardiac arrest and taken to the local hospital. He was pronounced dead a short time later. Sheriff Greg Ewing said Cameron, who was blind, was severely malnourished and weighed less than 15 pounds.
The four adults living in the home have all been arrested. Two of the adults, Hubert and Robin Kraemer had been Cameron’s guardians. He had been in their care since he was three days old.
