Child Abuse Suspects Arrested


A Parsons couple has been arrested on allegations of child abuse.


Parsons Police were asked to accompany Department of Children and Families workers to a residence in the 3300 block of Grand for an anonymous tip of child abuse involving a 2-year-old girl. Officers met with DCF staff and the investigation revealed the child had a large amount of bruising that would not constitute normal discipline measures. Due to the extent of the bruising and possibility of broken bones, the child was transported to Children's Mercy Hospital for medical evaluation after being placed in police protective custody.


22-year-old Nathan Lee Leatherwood and 22-year-old Halle Yulia Parish were both arrested for suspicion of Child Abuse and Aggravated Battery. Both were arrested and released on $25,000 bonds.
