Child-abuse case shines light on Kevin and Elizabeth Schatz
Police found, on the Schatzes’ bed, a 15-inch section of PVC tube, a quarter-inch thick. They believe it to be the murder weapon, as both Lydia and Zariah had "whip-like” marks that matched the length and width of the pipe. It lay beside a children’s book.The PVC tube may seem like a strange punishment tool, but for those familiar with the teachings of Christian fundamentalists and authors Michael and Debi Pearl, it is nothing new.
