Adams is one of a growing number of North Texans, and others nationwide, accused of child abuse when the only evidence is unexplained fractures. In the last two years, News 8 has profiled North Texans Andrew Huber; Rana and Chad Tyson; Darlyn Harrell; and Adam Bonham. The Hubers and Tysons were eventually cleared. "I've reviewed 120-130 cases of these unexplained fractures in children and know, that is my opinion, that these families did not hurt their children," said Dr. Charles Hyman, "And there are medical explanations." Hyman has been a pediatrician for more than 40 years. He now speaks out and testifies on behalf of parents who he considers to be wrongly accused of abuse.
Local Fox News affiliate Fox4kc in Kansas City has reported that 17-year-old Isaiah Rider has returned home to Kansas City, even though the State of Illinois still retains his custody rights. Isaiah was released from Luries Children’s Hospital in Chicago where he was being held against his will, and the will of his family. He is reportedly staying with grandparents while his mother fights back against "medical abuse" charges for disagreeing with the hospital's treatment and wanting to transfer him to a different hospital. Isaiah lost 5 months of his life to confinement in a hospital, and is now anxious to get back to school and resume his life. Isaiah's mother Michelle believes they held her son to conduct medical experimentation on his rare disease, Neurofibromatosis. Michelle will return to Chicago Friday to face trial. But in the meantime, at least Isaiah is back home in Kansas City, staying with his grandparents.
