Florida Couple Nearly Starved Baby to Death on Bizarre Vegan Diet

Florida couple Julia French and Robert Buskey are facing child neglect charges for nearly starving their five-month-old baby boy to death. According to the arrest warrant reported by local news sources, the five-month-old baby, who weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces at birth, had gained only one pound in his first five months. Officers, who were called to the couple’s home after neighbors reported the child might be in danger, reported that the child had sunken eyes and visible bones in addition to loose skin often found on severely malnourished children.
