PARIS, Ill. (FTN) – A Paris, Illinois grandmother is in hot water after photos were leaked of her grandson falling asleep in a dog bed.
It happened Saturday afternoon at 53-year-old Kristi Hedger’s house.
According to a source who wished to remain anonymous, Hedger forced two-year-old Alexander Essex to sleep in a dog bed.
Hedger was overheard by our crew saying she’s taken several photos sleeping in the bed.
We reached out to Hedger for a statement. In a written response she said:
“He just thinks it’s comfortable. He doesn’t actually sleep in there. Please don’t email me any more.”
We spoke to Alex’s parents, Chris and Ami Essex. They said they aren’t concerned.
“We have no reason to not believe her,” Ami said. “I mean he has his own bed there and she spoils him. She spoils him so much.”
“This is so stupid,” Chris said. “I’ve seen this kid…on his own, lay in a wet sandbox. And love it. The dog bed just sounds like him.”
Because of the holiday weekend it’s unclear if there is an active investigation with authorities.
Sheriff Woody told us this was not in his jurisdiction.
We will continue to follow this developing story and bring you an update as soon as it becomes available.
