How did Ricky Chekvedia manage to wrap a distance of about 12 x 5 feet after a long time? Police say his mother, Shannon Wilfong, abducted the child in 2007 after a heated argument with Ricky’s father, Mike Chekvedia. At that time, Ricky’s parents were taking care of him together. Rick and his father are in this family photo.
Shannon Wilfong, 30, was charged with felony criminal mischief after police discovered his 6-year-old son, Ricky Chekvedia, in a minuscule in a secret room hidden behind the divider in Wilfong’s mother’s Illinois home. The baby’s grandmother, Diana, was accused of aiding and abetting Dobbs.
The tip took the authorities to Franklin County (Ill.: Ricky Chekevdia’s grandma) to Diane Dobbs’s house. Marshalls and Illinois police confirmed that the young man was being held in an endless water pipe in his Dobbs house. The police also said that Rick was not allowed to go out in the evening or even go near the window and open it. The roof of his room was only 4 meters high.
Ricky Chekvedia’s grandmother, Diane Dobbs, claims that Ricky’s father, Mike Chekevdia, was physically abusive and that he was trying to protect the child. He said that Rick had invested the vast majority of his energy outside the walls of the room. Mike Chekevdia, 48, a former Illinois National Guard police officer and lieutenant colonel, has denied any wrongdoing. Dobbs is accused of helping and supporting.
