Bracey Renee Byrd Biography
Who is Bracey Renee Byrd?
Bracey Renee Byrd, 33, was arrested after her stepson was brought to the Wilson Medical Center emergency department on July 29 with horrific third-degree burns and other injuries.
She faces charges of attempted murder and malicious castration, among others.
Doctors were disturbed to see bruises on the boy’s face, arms, head, upper and lower legs, back and genital area. Police described the case as “horrific,” according to local news station ABC 11.
Some of the multiple wounds appeared to have been previously inflicted and in the process of healing.
The burns were so severe, with the worst grade being considered to have melted the fat under the skin, that the boy had to be taken to the University of North Carolina (UNC) Burn Center for further treatment.
The Department of Social Services issued a referral to the local sheriff’s office for child abuse after determining the injuries could not have been self-inflicted.
Byrd was arrested on September 30 and charged with attempted murder, felony child abuse with grievous bodily injury, malicious castration, first degree kidnapping, and three counts of felony child abuse with grievous bodily injury.
The boy has not been identified by the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office and is still receiving treatment for his injuries.
Byrd’s husband, Timothy Dean Byrd, passed away on September 8, 2021. He left three children in his care, including two who were adopted in 2019.
The stepmother is in custody on $2 million secure bond, according to reports.
