POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. —
A fundraiser was held Saturday for Mitch Comer, an 18-year old who's parents allegedly locked him in a bedroom with little food for years. The event was held at the Taylor Farm Park on Pine Valley Road in Powder Springs. Live entertainment was offered throughout the day including music, motorcycle stunt riders and martial arts demos. Just days ago, Judge Tonny Beavers denied bond Friday to the teen's mother and stepfather, Sheila and Paul Comer. Lawyers for the Comers argued the couple be granted bond and given ankle monitors. But prosecutors said the couple is a flight risk and has moved many times in the last decade. A magistrate court judge had denied bond Oct. 4. The Comers were indicted Oct. 23. The Comers have been in custody since mid-September, after their teen was found wandering a Los Angeles bus station Sept. 11. He told police he had suffered years of abuse.
Community supporters have since set up a Wells Fargo bank account to assist Mitch Comer. Donations can be made to the "The Mitch OverComer Fund."
