FL-A police officer in Daytona Beach, Florida found 7 children in horrible living conditions. It was said to be so filthy that it was hard for the officers to even breath due to the mixture of mold, urine, and feces being so strong.
A wall had been covered back to back with black mold, The bathroom floor was coated with flies, layers of feces, and the bedroom had dirty mattresses with cockroaches crawling all over them. The home was also hotter inside than out. The children ranged in age from 1-8 and authorities placed them into the custody of their grandmother.
Their mothers, who are sisters, now face one count each of felony child abuse. Police arrested 27-year-old Melida Jenkins and 31-year-old Shameka Jenkins. The woman have said that the police allegations were false and that she reported the filth to the landlord but nothing was done about it.
TN-Three young boys were removed from a Tennessee home that authorities said was filled with trash and feces, after the children were allegedly found in "deplorable" conditions. Also, 21 animals were removed from the home, authorities said. Eleven of those animals — two dogs, two turtles, a cat, a rabbit and five parakeets — were found dead in a freezer, said Bob Citrullo, the executive director of the Humane Educational Society in Chattanooga. Four dogs, three cats, a rabbit, a python and a lizard were found alive, he said, describing the animals as "very thin" and covered in fleas and other parasites. They are being evaluated by veterinarians.
When two HES officers investigated the home, one peered inside a room and saw a child sitting on a mattress on the floor, surrounded by filth. Citrullo said an HES officer told him that it appeared the children were locked in one room in the home.
When police arrived at the home, they immediately contacted children's services, which took custody of the boys. The boys' parents, Stacy Tallent and Dustin Tallent, both 31, were arrested and charged with aggravated child neglect.
