Authorities Reveal Horrific Thing Truck Driver Tried To Do To Baby At NY Gas Station

According to a new report from Law & Crime, a truck driver attempted to set a 1-year-old baby on fire at a gas station according to authorities during a press conference on Thursday. Officials then went on to describe discovering an injured 4-year-old in the tractor trailer cab of the defendant, Jamie Avery Jr., 28.

Hold on to your butts, folks. This gets really disturbing.

Authorities in Seneca County, New York, announced that Avery was facing charges of attempted aggravated murder, attempted murder in the second degree, arson in the second degree, attempted arson in the second degree, and endangering the welfare of a child.

Thank God, both children are expected to fully recover from injuries they sustained at the hands of Avery.

What really makes this whole thing extremely sickening is the fact that another adult worked with Avery to pour flammable liquid all over the infant victim. Authorities did not identify this individual during the press conference.

Listen, I don’t normally say stuff like this, but it seems like these two sick individuals must have been dabbling in dark stuff they shouldn’t have been dabbling in. I don’t know that for sure, obviously, but something isn’t right here.

“Seneca County District Attorney Mark Sinkiewicz declined to tell reporters why this individual was not charged. Nonetheless, officials noted that they anticipate charges against this person, and more charges are also possible against Avery,” Law & Crime reported.

The report stated that local authorities are currently still working to confirm how the adults and children were connected.

“We believe there is a parental relationship, but we haven’t fully determined that yet,” Sinkiewicz went on to say. He also said that they believe both children are related, but they have not been able to confirm that.”

“Officers responded to the gas station Love’s truck stop on Tuesday at about 5:30 a.m. in the town of Tyre, Seneca County Sheriff W. Timothy Luce reporters. There were reports of fires inside the building. According to authorities, deputies found both suspects and detained them. Investigators found the 1-year-old child covered in a flammable liquid. The 4-year-old was found with head injuries, officials said,” the report continued.

Authorities also said that they evacuated the building after a suspicious device was discovered in the men’s room. However, they found out that it was just a makeshift replica and not an incendiary device.

The motive for all of this is still not clear.

“It did not appear that they knew anybody at the gas station, he said.  Avery is from all the way down in West Palm Beach, Florida, but sheriff’s Lt. Timothy Thompson noted that this suspect has family in the Syracuse area. Tyre is less than an hour drive west of Syracuse, New York,” the report added.

According to the authorities, Avery was taken into custody without incident.

Both of the children are currently in state custody and will be release from the hospital. The investigation is currently still ongoing.
