THIBODAUX, LA- A man has been arrested for decapitating and dismembering the special needs son of his girlfriend.

Jeremiah Wright, 30, confessed to killing 7-year-old Jori Lirette, whose body was found near an intersection. Detectives said Wright was living with the boy and his mother. Wright was described as the woman's boyfriend.
A passerby spotted the head of the young boy near the sidewalk of their home on West 7th Street. That person called police, who found the rest of Jori Lirette’s remains in a garbage can.


Police Chief Silverii said the motive is unclear, though Wright told police he was tired of taking care of the boy, who had heart problems and needed a feeding tube.

Wright was booked on a charge of first-degree murder and held Monday in lieu of $5 million bond.


An autopsy was scheduled to learn more about the cause of death, and crime scene technicians removed evidence from the victim's home on Sunday for analysis.

Ephesians 6:4 warns fathers not to “exasperate” or provoke their children, but to bring them up in the “training and instruction of the Lord.” Harsh, unloving discipline alienates children’s minds from their parents and renders their instructions and corrections useless. Ephesians 4:15-19 says we are to speak the truth in love and use our words to build others up, not allow rotten or destructive words to pour from our lips.

children have a special place in God’s heart and anyone who harms a child is inviting God’s wrath upon Him. When Jesus’ disciples tried to keep children from coming to Him, He rebuked them and welcomed little children to His side, saying, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Mark 10:14). Then He took the children in His arms and blessed them (v. 16).

No bond should be set for this horrible man. Give him the death penalty, why waste our taxpayers money in keeping him in jail and living it up!!

For those people that say evil does not exist this story should end all doubts. This poor child. God will take good care of him now. As for the boyfriend. Take him out back and shoot him. And the mother should not allowed to have any more children...period.

I agree with taking the beast out and cutting it's throat until it bleeds out. However the mother's sin was waiting too long to get away from the beast. She loved and cared for the child. She has suffered enough.

Special Needs or not a child is a blessing !!!!!!!!!!! He is not a man he is FILTH!!!!!

i hope that so called"man" burns in hell!

Another child lost because the boyfriend of the mother was disturbed. Young women, learn from these tragedies. Protect yourself from the predators. A man that makes you feel good does not mean your child will be safe. Think a little and know what you are getting into. It's your child's life, after all.
