There are a lot of children that come from broken families. These are the same children who see relationships differently after seeing their parents constantly fighting or being at odds with each other. There are cases where the parents punish the children for their anger towards their spouse or partner. Other times there are adults out there that physically or emotionally abuse their children to get under their partner’s skin. These cases are countless. They have an impact on the child on an emotional and mental level in the long run. Unfortunately, a similar story of a child who had suddenly become a pawn amidst his parent’s tumultuous relationship went missing in 2009.

A Spat Between the Parents

Elizabeth Johnson and Logan McQueary were the parents of an 8-month-old Gabriel. They began dating in 2007. They led a relatively happy life; their relationship wasn’t as rocky as one would think. However, that changed after they found out they were expecting a baby in 2008. The basis of their fights began when Elizabeth expressed how unsure she was about giving birth to their child. On one side, she would be elated. On another, she would get extremely depressed and state she didn’t want the child at all.

Somehow, after they decided to have the baby and went through with the birth, their relationship took the turn for the worst. According to Logan, Gabriel’s father, Elizabeth went off the deep end. She would be extremely violent, other times very depressed. Her tendencies to break stuff when she went on a violent spree put a considerable amount of strain on their relationship. The control Logan had slipped down a notch when he noticed that there were times that Elizabeth would completely neglect taking care of their baby.
