Troy Koehler’s adoptive parents were apprehended on November 15, 2022, in Texas. The charges were then looked at on November 16, 2022. The case can be tracked back to when Troy went missing on July 28, 2022.
Later, the child’s body was found in the washing machine at his Spring, Texas, home. Since Troy went missing, the parents had to deal with a lot of questions and investigations. During this process, the child’s adopted father, Jemaine Thomas, said different things.
This made him and his wife, Tiffany, two of the most likely people to have done it. Troy Koehler’s foster parents sent each other vἰolent texts about the boy.
At 5:20 a.m. on July 28, 2022, Tiffany and Jemaine Thomas called 911 to say that their 7-year-old child had run away. Jemaine supposedly told the cops that Troy Koehler had been missing since 11 p.m. that night. However, his statements eventually proved contradictory.
The police found Troy Koehler’s body in the washing machine in the garage at 7:20 a.m. the next morning. Following a thorough investigation, the duo was eventually arrested and brought before the court.
During the investigation, surveillance video showed that Troy played in his front yard the night before he dἰed. Police also found that no one else had come or gone from the house that night besides Jemaine and Tiffany.
The autopsy report said that Troy Koehler had been hit and ch0ked to deἀth. He may have also been forced to go underwater. The medical inspector also found a cut on Troy’s forehead and brυises on his leg.
Police also found vἰolent text messages that Tiffany and Jemaine had sent to each other. Several of these texts said that both of them wanted to kἰll their son, Troy Koehler. The story goes that they were tired of their child taking snacks.
Jemaine went to court on November 16, 2022, and was charged with mυrder. Tiffany did not show up in court, but she was charged with hurting a child and hurting a child by not doing something. In court, the following statement was read aloud –
“His deἀth was ruled a homicide due to homicidal vἰolence… The complainant suffered both remote and new blunt-force trἀuma that was indicative of inflicted trἀuma.”
For Jemaine and Tiffany, the court had also given them bonds worth $2 million and $150,000, respectively. Even if the couple bonds out, they will still have to do things like wear GPS trackers. They also won’t be able to talk to anyone younger than 17 years old.
