A 47-year-old Boone County man was arrested yesterday (Wednesday) by sheriff’s deputies on suspicion of Felony Child Abuse involving a four-year-old girl. Jeffrey Paul Turner was released from the Boone County Jail after posting a bond of just over $4700 dollars. In addition to the Child Abuse charge, Turner was also booked on an outstanding warrant for Failure to Appear on a charge of Passing Bad Checks. The sheriff’s department began an investigation after the Missouri Division of Children’s Services received a hotline report detailing injuries to the girl. The incident is believed to have occurred Tuesday at the suspect’s residence.
