LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Chilling details have emerged about the death of a Kentucky man with Down syndrome.

The 20-year-old man only weighed 61 pounds when he died in December in their home in Winchester, just outside of Lexington. After that, police launched an investigation into Albert and Patsy Christy.

The coroner determined that their son died of neglect, malnutrition, dehydration and pneumonia.

The autopsy revealed the victim had no food in his stomach when he died.
