Three Charged In Abduction Of 5-Year-Old On Transplant List

Three people have been charged in the abduction of a 5-year-old boy who was taken from a St. Louis Hospital where he is very sick and on the heart transplant list.

Porter Stone was kidnapped Tuesday after he completed an evaluation for a transplant. Police found them Wednesday in a motel in the Chicago area.

Porter’s father, Jeffrey Stone, his aunt and Jeffrey’s sister, Heather Minton as well as their mother, Rhonda Marie Matthews are all facing kidnapping charges, interfering with custody and endangering the welfare of a child.

The three are currently being held on a $1 million bond in Chicago.

Porter is very sick and requires medication, which he had very little of at the time of the alleged abduction.
