A disabled woman in the care of her husband and son was discovered living in unhealthy conditions and reportedly had maggots covering her decomposing flesh. Her family members are facing charges for the alleged abuse.

A Sugar Hill, Georgia, obese and bedridden elderly woman living with her husband and son as her caretakers lost consciousness last Thursday, and Gwinnett County Fire Department Emergency Medical Technicians responded to the call for help.

The fire crew that dispatched in response to the call had been to the woman’s home one month prior when they transported her back from a trip to the hospital and assisted her into her home with the use of a “Mega Mover;” a special tarp designated for moving very large patients. When they came back to the apartment this time they believed that the woman had remained upon the same tarp with which they brought her home on since their previous visit. The once-clean canvas was now allegedly stained with fecal matter and the woman’s legs appeared to be blackened and decomposing. Maggots and cockroaches were reportedly eating the dead flesh from her body and they did not believe she would survive.

A couple was arrested on Wednesday when authorities found that they live in a box made of plywood, and had been residing there with their three children for several years.

Mona Kirk and Daniel Panico of Joshua Tree have three children and they have reportedly lived well below the poverty level for quite some time. The couple owns a piece of land in a rural area, and they have parked a trailer on the property in order to provide shelter to their family. Near the trailer, they have an outdoor box-like structure made out of plywood, and there is no electricity or running water on the land. They have been making ends meet in this fashion for the last four years.

The children, ages 11, 13 and 14 are homeschooled and are said to be very intelligent. Their parents keep them active in community activities such as the local scout group, and frequented educational spots including the Hi-Desert Nature Museum in Yucca Valley, and the public library, as reported by friends of the family.

Two Maryland woman in a domestic partnership who share a home have been accused of several child abuse related charges when three children in their care were allegedly fed dog excrement and found with several types of injuries.

29-year-old Amanda Wright and her girlfriend 25-year-old Besline Joseph share a home with three children, ages 8, 9 and 10. The relationship between the women and the children has not been made public.

In a period that investigators purport began late in the spring of 2017 Wright and Joseph are believed to have kept the children locked in closets as well as in the basement of the home. Injuries on the victims led investigators to the notion that the women had been using several items, including sticks and belts, to beat the youngsters. A stun gun was also discovered in the home and assumed as one of the items used in the alleged abuse.
