A 13-year-old South Carolina boy known for his “resilience, perseverance, and a commitment to making a difference in the world” allegedly died at the hands of his stepfather who beat him to death with a piece of wood and the butt of a handgun as his mother did nothing to stop the brutal assault.

According to an arrest warrant, 40-year-old Ivy Contrell Jenerette repeatedly hit his stepson, Isaiah Gaymes, in the head with a piece of wood and a handgun on May 8 at their home in the Longs community in Horry County, not far from Myrtle Beach. Isaiah’s mother, 34-year-old Samantha Ann Gaymes, allowed the abuse to happen, the warrant said. Authorities reportedly found the bloodied piece of wood and gun with Isaiah’s injuries being consistent with being struck with those items.
