Who is Bryan T Snow? Missouri man left autistic girlfriend in bath near feces and starved twin girls in closet
The five-year-old twin girls claimed they were afraid of their father and that both parents would choke them. They were locked in closets which they had to claw out of
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI: A Missouri man is accused of leaving his autistic girlfriend stuck in a bathtub and for risking the lives of their two five-year-old twin girls, authorities said. The victims were discovered after a Central Jackson County Fire Protection (CJC) Captain said the apartment smelt of a "decaying flesh".
Bryan T Snow, 30, a Blue Springs native got arrested on February 12, 2021, for allegedly abusing his girlfriend and their five-year-old daughters. The woman's situation was brought to light after Central Jackson County Fire Protection District (CJC) personnel were called to do a "lift assist" at Snow's residence. After the personnel went to do a check, they found a bruised 27-year-old woman in a bathtub with fecal matter, according to a complaint warrant filed by the Jackson County prosecuting attorney's office.
Snow's girlfriend suffered from Multiple Sclerosis as well as high functioning autism. According to the prosecutor's office, she "was suffering from horrific wounds from sitting in the tub reportedly for days". She was also sitting in "inches of human waste".
According to a report by The Examiner, The CJC Captain said the woman had the worst pressure sores he had seen in the 27 years of emergency medical services. One sore, described by him, was of the size of a basketball, which a doctor said could have been a threat as it was exposed to human feces.
Officers stated that Snow told them he worked two days in Kansas City and a friend was supposed to check on his girlfriend after he put her in the bath, according to the warrant. After the girlfriend was brought to the hospital to treat the severe bedsores and possible infections, officers went back to the apartment where they found the "extremely malnourished" twin girls.
The twin girls were sent to a children's hospital where they were diagnosed with "physical child abuse, failure to thrive and child neglect (malnourishment)." The warrant states that they had been tied up and wrapped in the back of a wardrobe for days, including when officers first arrived on the scene. They also claimed they were afraid of their father and that both parents would choke them. The twin girls also told the Blue Springs police officers how they were locked in a closet for extended periods of time, which they were forced to claw out of. The girls also had burn marks on the insides of her thighs.
Snow has been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child/creating a substantial risk in the first degree and domestic assault in the second degree, according to a statement by the Jackson County prosecuting attorney's office. Snow's bond is set at $65,000. If sentenced, Snow could receive up to seven years in prison for each charge.
