AKRON, OHIO--Jesse Littleton is a hero.
Last month, Littleton moved into a guest room at the house of childhood friend, Justine Davis.
It didn't take long for him to learn about Davis' 25-year-old son, Edgar Vannoy, who was kept in a separate room.
Vannoy, who had experienced a brain injury as an infant, was malnourished and dehydrated. His 92-pound body was covered with sores. He had spent his days and nights with nothing to do, locked in a room smelling of feces and urine.
A short time later, Littleton moved out and telephoned police.
Because of Littleton's call, Justine and her husband, William T. Davis, have been charged with failing to provide for a "functionally-impaired person", a fourth-degree felony, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
