Child Abuse: 2 year old Brian Hawes killed in Racine; mother only faces 1 charge

by Beth
(Racine, Wisconsin, USA)

I live in Racine and know the Hawes family. Brian was killed a few weeks ago by his mother's live in boyfriend. He was arrested and charged with 2nd degree reckless homicide. She was only arrested on 1 count of failing to prevent harm. Brian's older brother was also abused, but survived and is in protective custody.


Per the criminal complaint, Tisa Hawes, knew about the physical abuse, ordered the physical abuse and also abused the children herself.

We are asking that justice be served and Tisa be charged appropriately. Racine County Human Service/Child Protective Services claim that they handled everything properly. The state of Wisconsin is now going to investigate. There is additional data being brought forth, and we are asking for everyone's help.
