8-Year-Old Boy Who Got Tied To Tree, Set On Fire Gets Justice Thanks To Last Words On Deathbed

A Texas boy’s journey to justice has captivated hearts and sparked conversations about legal reform after enduring a horrific attack.

Robbie Middleton’s harrowing ordeal began on his eighth birthday in 1998 when he was tied to a tree, doused in gasoline, and set ablaze in Splendora, Texas.

Despite suffering burns covering 99% of his body, Middleton displayed remarkable resilience, undergoing over 150 operations. Tragically, his injuries led to deadly skin cancer, but not before he recorded a deposition naming his attacker, Don Collins, who was later imprisoned.

Middleton’s family received a historic $150 billion settlement, shedding light on the need for legal reforms in juvenile prosecution. This story serves as a testament to Middleton’s resilience and the pursuit of justice against all odds.
