Foster parents of missing boy, Marcus Fiesel, charged in 3-year-old’s death

The foster parents of 3 year old Marcus Fiesel, David and Liz Carroll, have been charged Marcus Fiesel  1with involuntary manslaughter. Marcus Fiesel has been missing since last Tuesday.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters, Sheriff Simon Leis, Jr and Clermont County Prosecutor Donald White held a news conference at 3 p.m. to announce the arrest of David and Liz Carroll, Marcus Fiesel’s foster parents. They are charged with involuntary manslaughter, but more serious charges are expected.

Pictures of Missing Marcus Fiesel

Marcus Fiesel, who was developmentally disabled, was reportedly last seen August 15; however, police have a theory as to what occurred. It is imcomprehensible what some people are capable of. These people were given the responsibility to take care of a 3 year old, developmentally disabled boy. God be with you Marcus.

Deters said David and Liz Carroll placed Marcus in a closet for two days, before going to a family reunion in Williamsburg, Ky. Aug. 4. When they returned, he was dead.

David Carroll is accused of burning the boy’s body in Brown County.

The news conferences held by the couple were allegedly part of their cover-up.  

The Clermont County Children’s Services has taken charge of the Carroll’s four children.

  2. For anyone to actually get up in front of the whole world and beg for someone to bring their child home or drop them off somewhere knowing that that child will never be home again is unconceiveable. There are so many people out there in the world who would have given anything to have a child and people like the Carrolls have no problem getting them. What’s wrong with the system? I live in Kentucky and have been following this from day one. None of it sounded right to begin with. Life in prison is too good for those two. Marcus suffered beyond belief at their hands and they have the nerve to think they did nothing wrong. The punishment they get in this life will be nothing compared to what they will get when they die. They should have to feel all of the suffering that Marcus did and then some. I hope justice will be done.
