“This is my hammer…there are many like it, but this one is mine — wait, does this pink tie make me look gay?”

Although, to be sure, the hammer was only used to make the kid unrecognizable after his tormentors — his mother and stepfather — killed him with other means. “Ah,” you think, “this is where the gun comes in, right?” Apparently not. They used, a medical examiner has testified, “a combination of too many over-the-counter medications, pneumonia and severe burns.”

Charming people, these.

Fox News:

Prosecutors say 34-year-old Nathanael Sloop and his wife malnourished and abused the boy for days until he died in May 2010. Sloop is accused of using a hammer to disfigure Ethan Stacy’s face and burying his body in the northern Utah mountains.

You might ask, where was the kid’s actual father? He had put the kid on a plane to these folks less than two weeks before, as a consequence of a custody ruling.

Judge’s custody ruling = Poor kid’s death by torture.
