In West Virginia and other States, a man has been charged with a crime involving a 2 year old boy. Michael Scott Linkous, age 20, of Coal City, North Carolina is accused of abusing the 2 year old in causing or allowing scolding hot water to injure the 2 year old. Investigators reported that the injuries were “submersion burns” which are burns caused by parts of the body submerged in scolding hot water. Linkous was the boyfriend of the 2 year old’s mother. Parents should be very careful as to what adults are given access and responsibility for their children.
