Who is Ray Whittaker?

Ray Whittaker is a sibling of the Whittaker family and is widely regarded as a victim of incest, according to a filmmaker.

Ray has trouble speaking, so he mostly uses grunts and gestures to communicate.

In 2004, photographer and author Mark Laita photographed Ray and his family for his book Create Equal.

The book brought the Whittaker family into the public eye.

Ray and his siblings gained more public attention after Mark returned to the family home in 2020.

Mark made a video called Inbred Family – The Whittakers documenting his visit.

The video was posted to YouTube and as of December 11, 2022 has amassed 33 million views and 420,000 likes.

They also had a brother named Freddie who died of a heart attack about six years ago.

Her parents are also deceased.

Mark’s video shows the family’s poor living conditions, including a small run-down house and several dogs.

Mark created a GoFundMe page to help the Whitakers who raised $55,785.

Are the Whittaker inbred?

The Whittaker are known to be an alleged inbred family.

However, in Mark’s video, the unnamed sister denied that their parents were siblings or cousins.

ThoughtCo. states that inbreeding can cause defects such as “decreased fertility”, “decreased birth rate”, “higher infant and child mortality”, “smaller adult height” and “decreased immune function”.

These defects also include: “Increased risk of cardiovascular disease”, “Increased facial asymmetry” and “Increased risk of genetic disorders”.
