10-year-old boy with special needs intentionally set on fire

KERRVILLE, TX (WOAI) — A boy with special needs is critically hurt and is in the hospital after his family says he was set on fire in Kerrville, Texas over the weekend.

More than 20 percent of 10-year-old Kayden Culp’s body was burned, from his ears to his belly button, according to the boy’s mother.

She said that her son was playing in a field with two other children when one boy doused him with gasoline and another set him on fire. A shed also caught fire.

“He needs justice,” says family friend Ashley White, “I mean, no kid deserves to go through anything he’s going through. At all. Period.”

Kayden is at University Hospital in San Antonio where he is currently on life support.
