Police Remove Three Children From Feces-Filled Logan Home
Police removed three girls from a Logan neighborhood home that was reportedly filled with feces, trash and other random nasties. Aged 1, 3, and 4, the children removed from the home were found wearing only diapers, with no crib or children’s bedding in sight.
Police initially went to the home, located on the 4800 block of N. Ninth Street, to deliver a domestic violence warrant as the girls’ mother, Lakeeshanaye Overton, 24, had been arrested for attacking her husband, Soyika Eldemine, 25. The couple now is charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child. The children have since been transported to an area hospital, though there has been no word about their condition.
This comes on the heels of last month’s report about a Bustleton home owned by a man in his mid 70s that police found stacked with trash and animal feces. An investigator in that case called it a “house of horrors.” Now, it would appear that Philly has more than one. [NBC]
