Disturbing details revealed as Fall River couple arrested after death of 14-year-old held without bail



Some disturbing details were released today at the arraignment of a Fall River couple being charged after the death of a 14-year-old boy.

John Michael Almond, 33, and his girlfriend, Jaclyn Marie Coleman, 26 were both arrested yesterday and are being held without bail.

Both defendants were arraigned today in Fall River District Court on charges of caretaker neglect of a disabled person and possession of a Class A drug.

Coleman was also charged with assault and battery on a police officer and the obstruction of justice portion of the state’s witness intimidation statute. She is accused of attempting to destroy a cell phone in the presence of police officers and then assaulting one of the officer’s who attempted to stop her from destroying the device.

According to WCVB, the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office stated at today’s arraignment that David Almond was dramatically emaciated and both he and his brother were wearing adult diapers that were soiled.

David Almond was 5’10” and approximately 80 pounds at the time he was discovered by authorities. The twin brother is about the same build.

During the arraignment, it was stated that preliminary exams revealed that both brothers had fentanyl in their system. Heroin was reportedly found in the apartment.

According to Fall River School Superintendent Matthew Malone, Almond was a freshman student at B.M.C. Durfee High School.

The defendants are held without bail until the next hearing on October 28.

    Bleeding hearts for dopers with no “choice” allow these things to happen. You’re all complicit.
