http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6131643/Wisconsin-parents-arrested-15-year-old-son-died-starvation.htmlA Wisconsin couple have been arrested after their 15-year-old son died in the midst of a 40-day fast, according to police.
Kehinde Omosebi, 49, walked into the Reedsburg Police Department to report the death of his son, Ayanfe Omosebi, according to police chief Timothy Becker.
Officers responded to the family's home but found that they had to force themselves in because the doors were padlocked from the inside.
Inside, police found Ayanfe Omosebi 'extremely emaciated and deceased,' Chippewa.com reports.
The boy's mother, 48-year-old Titilayno Omosebi, was also found in the home emaciated along with an 11-year-old child.
Kehinde shared with authorities that they had been on a fast since July 19 and that he was a 'religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries'.
The father told police that his son died on Friday which would have marked the 44th day since they started fasting.
No food was found at the residence. Both Titilayno and her 11-year-old child were taken to a hospital. The mother refused treatment, citing religious reasons.
Both parents were taken to the Sauk County Jail for charges of child neglect causing death and neglecting a child causing great bodily harm.
The 11-year-old was taken to child protective custody and the Children's Hospital in Madison.
