CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – A teenager at the center of a child abuse case, when he was found chained to porch with a dead chicken tied around his neck, is speaking out for the first time.

The boy was 11 years old in 2013 when deputies found him on the porch of his foster parents Wanda Sue Larson and Dorian Harper. At the time, Larson was a Department of Social Services supervisor for Union County and Harper was a nurse at Carolinas Medical Center – Union.

“I got really nervous and happy,” the boy WBTV is calling “Michael” said when deputies stumbled across him on the porch. According to the Union County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy was responding to an animal services complaint at a home along Austin Road when he saw the then 11-year-old boy outside.

“He came up to the porch and, well I don’t know what he said at first, but he saw the handcuffs and he said ‘Why are you handcuffed to the porch?’ and I said ‘because they didn’t want me to run away’,” Michael told WBTV during a sit-down interview conducted in May. “I knew they wouldn’t believe it, which they didn’t, so they asked where the parents were, and I said ‘they’re inside’.”

Harper came to the porch with another child and released several large dogs on the deputy, according to a Union County Sheriff’s report. When backup arrived, five children were removed from the home. Four of the children had been adopted by Harper and Larson, all between the ages of eight and 14.
