Body Bags With Joseph Scott Morgan: Dead at Daddy’s Hands

A South Carolina dad drives his five children around the deep south for nine days. Their bodies are in garbage bags in the trunk. Timothy Jones Jr. strangles four of them.

The other, a 6-year-old boy named Nahtahn, is forced to exercise until he dies. The dad uses the activity as punishment after he accuses Nahtahn of breaking an electrical outlet in the home. After driving for almost two weeks, Jones dumps the bags off a logging road in rural Alabama.

Today on Body Bags, forensic expert Joseph Scott Morgan explains what happened to the children’s bodies.
