Newport DCS investigation
A seven year-old Newport boy was placed in the custody of a relative after he was found walking on Eighth Street early Saturday morning. Newport Sgt. Billy Woody responded after Detective Jason Ramsey found the boy in the middle of the street. When officers went to his home, the boy's mother, Candy Peterson, 27, said her son was in his bedroom. The boy told police he didn't want to go back home because he wasn't cared for. He also said he was hungry and cold. According to police, the boy said he had been assaulted by Monty Newlin, 26, his mother's boyfriend. An examination at the Newport Medical Center revealed an injury to the boy's back and so the Department of Children's Services was contacted. Social worker Aaron Dockery said his department already had an open case on the home. After the boy was placed with a family member, Newlin was ordered to have no contact with the child.
