KANSAS CITY, KS — Disturbing images of the torture of Adrian Jones, the seven-year-old boy who was abused, murdered, and fed to pigs by his father Michael and stepmother Heather Jones, have emerged and shed light on the horrific abuse the boy endured during his last days on earth.

Jen Hoevers, the Joneses’ landlord at the time in Kansas City, Kansas, said that Heather gave her access to her Apple iCloud account so that she could save pictures of the children.

But when Hoevers logged in, she was horrified to find images of Adrian’s abuse. She took the evidence to police and then to Adrian’s grandmother, Judy Conway, and it was eventually shared with 41 Action News Investigators.

In the graphic images, Adrian can be seen transforming from a happy little boy with, as his grandmother said, an “amazing smile,” into a shell of his former self.

Conway’s daughter was married to Adrian’s father Michael Jones. In 2012, the Kansas Department for Children and Families removed the kids from their biological mother’s home, and gave their father custody. At home with six siblings and his killers, who claimed to be homeschooling him, Adrian was isolated.

In late 2015, police responded to a domestic dispute at their home. When police arrived, they found Adrian’s remains in a livestock pen. Detectives said that he had been fed to pigs, and that it was one of the most gruesome crimes they had ever seen.

The disturbing images show Adrian being forced to stand for hours with his hands in the air. He was blindfolded, confined, and beaten with a broomstick. Surveillance video shows Adrian’s hands and feet handcuffed while he was forced to stay outside, and eating food that had bugs in it.

During Adrian’s last days on earth, the boy was stripped and forced to stand in a shower stall, and spend hours in a dirty swimming pool. He eventually died in that shower stall, where his body was left for weeks.

Be forewarned before you click to view the photos. An editor’s note accompanying the report reads:

This story contains graphic and disturbing images which have not been seen by the public until now. We struggled to decide what images to include, and they are hard for us to see too. We are not trying to be salacious or sensational by publishing them, and we do not want to further victimize anyone involved. Our goal is accountability. The social and government systems that should protect children may have failed Adrian Jones. By publishing this series, we hope to shine a light on these possible failures.”

    What’s wrong with these people?

    • Angel Mois

      They’re not people. They’re not even monsters.They are a nightmare unto their own.

      • Martha Bartha

        Innocent Child! I had a horrible childhood. I’m scarred for life!🐷

        • Sally L. Sennett

          So sorry!

          • Martha Bartha

            Not your fault!😱🐸🤔🐯

    • Hey Beavis

      I am left wondering the same. How can you treat a child like that? I’m glad they got life sentences and I’d love to smack that smirk off the step mother’s face with a broomstick. Just plain evil.

      • Martha Bartha

        Pure Evil!👿

  • NYSmike


    • Hey Beavis

      Me too, this makes me angry.

  • Angel Mois

    Please…PLEASE make sure these two lovely people live a very long life……in a dog cage subsisting on rabbit pellets and being used in painful experiments.

    • Paula

      Angel you could of said it better.

  • JenniCooper

    What the f*ck? Those two are in no way parents or human beings for that matter. They are disgusting monsters. The only justice that poor little guy could get would be to do the exact same sh*t to them that they did to him.

    • Paula

      Your do right

  • Lucy Dianne Dutton


    • Hey Beavis

      It is evil behavior for sure.

  • Nesa

    Sweet little Adrian, I am sorry you had to endure such pain. My heart is sadden by the horrific way you were treated. You are now resting in our Heavenly Fathers arms, no more pain, no more tears. Rest my sweet angel. Justice will be served!!!

    • A-rod Brian Jayden

      Sorry to ask but where or what happen to his mother

  • GypsyLove

    Horrible wretched monsters! What a beautiful boy he was. My heart is breaking for both him and his grandmother.

  • carcyn

    I will induce the lethal dose … for both

  • very_opinionated1

    Prison is just too good of a punishment for his so called parents. They deserve to feel exactly what that poor kid felt.

  • De Anna Raiten

    How sad. Breaks my heart. Sorry but an eye for an eye. They should get the same treatment.

  • non

    This just ruined my day. 😞 RIP, sweet Adrian. FLY HIGH 💫

  • Laineykins

    How sad…the system that was supposed to protect him took him from his mother and gave him to his biological father to endure this abuse. An investigation needs to be done. This is sickening…..the system failed him.

  • Laineykins

    I think these “parents” should be treated just the same. There is proof that these things happened. Why waste resources?

  • Nora Jackson

    On the day of judgement he will point out his parents to God and they will recieve their judgement and punishment. God doesnt leave anyone alone, maybe on earth he may not touch them but when they die their punishment is waiting for them.

  • Stephanie Foster-Short

    Prisoners will handle both of them, believe that!!!

  • Victoria Smart

    Scum of the earth.

  • nay88

    what sick filth I wont call them human. I watched a ews clip of an interview with the nanny from Dec 2015, she was crying and what not she should be ashamed of herself for not alerting someone like the police or children services, the interview made me want to vomit.

  • jc purtle

    I hope someone that is sickened by this as much as me has a friend or family member in the same penitentiary as these 2 monsters!!!


    😡Hope they get the gas chamber or brutally murdered in prison

  • A-rod Brian Jayden

    Sorry to ask where was his mother because the lady there was his step mom

    • Becky Adams

      It doesn’t say just that they were taken from home…all 6

  • Becky Adams

    I’m confused or maybe during my anger missed one angle of the story! Was the grandmother keeping in contact? Invoking her rights? Perhaps contacting social services for a welfare check up on kids? She is more concerned with the home schooling being responsible!!! This is your flesh and blood as well! I would be afraid to sleep at night! She lacks any emotion to me!

  • Sally L. Sennett

    What happened to Adrian’s siblings? The ones the parents encouraged to participate in his abuse? Are they getting counseling? You can hear their voices on some of the tapes. On one video they are watching as he is handcuffed and then eats the apple sauce they, the siblings, have put bugs and dirt in!

  • Mary Ann Mingo

    I always cry for what happened to Adrian. THis little angel do not deserve this. I am very angry to his evil father Michael JOnes and to Heather Jones!!! 25 yrs of imprisonment is not enough! I hope you two experience the same thing you did to Adrian!

  • Mary Ann Mingo

    To Adrian Jones, may our God be with you now in heaven. You are now safe, rest in peace my little boy…

  • Terrey

    Ummm.anyone even realize the horrific crap here? I can not believe I’m reading this.. EVERYONE involved in this should be punished.. EVERYONE.. This is sick and disgusting that so many people were involved and the child eventually died. EVERYONE from the Dr.s, the state, the family and friends. EVERYONE should be punished.. What’s wrong with y’all!?? Speak up and do not let this situation just die along with him… Write letters do something.. Society failed this child.
    Beyond belief, horrified and saddened… Disgusted with humanity. I guarantee none else takes ownership in failing him.. They should all feel guilty.. Even the judges, the attorneys.. EVERYONE INCLUDING the news reporters and those of us who have read the story.. We ALL fail him if we do nothing but leave notes like this. Pay attention to the NOTE from the editor..#FAILURE……..#neverforgethisname, #adrianjones, #childerenarenotmarters
