Octomom

Police Investigating

Child Neglect Claims

EXCLUSIVE

The La Habra Police Department and the Orange County Dept. of Family and Children's Services showed up at the home of Octomom Nadya Suleman Tuesday night, after receiving a complaint from her hairstylist that the mother of 14 allows her kids to live in horrendous conditions.

Octomom's hairstylist went to the PD today and she tells us ... she told cops she has been in the house and seen the following:

-- the plumbing is a disaster ... there is only one working toilet in the house
-- some of the kids are pooping on portable training toilets located in their bedrooms and in the backyard
-- the kids appear malnourished and unbathed
-- she observed Octomom locking her kids in a bedroom while she tended to personal matters
-- the house is filthy

The stylist made other allegations as well.

When the cop and 3 Children's Services workers arrived and walked inside, you can hear Octo say, "Excuse the graffiti." 

The authorities stayed an hour-and-a-half and left.  We're told they determined the kids were not in danger so they weren't removed from the home, but there will be a follow-up with Children's Services.

We're told the authorities will continue to investigate.

she shouldnt need help with the food stamps is octomom is $520 on a haircut..wth?...children come first when your a parent and if you need to go and get a haircut of $520 then you dont need food stamps either.
Does Octomom know how much food you can get for $520 at least a week of food for her 14 kids....omg..she needs to start thinking of the kids first and worry about herself last.
There are alot of people in this country that need help from the food stamp program and get denied or doesnt get enough to feed their family...

How many time is this freak going to be allowed to skirt the law or be given yet another opportunity at mothering? A job for which she is clearly inadequate (if not down right abusive). Every day that autorities leave those kids in her care, they die a little. Take them AWAY and give them to people that will love and care for them - people that will treat them like human beings, not pets. Give those kids a chance at a life and lock up that freak of a woman.

What commenter here thinks living in fecal matter is OK?? Why is this acceptable???? Will they act when they find one or more of the children dead?? This situation is never going to get any better, that's for sure. The neglect will be compounded as they get older. It will cost more to feed them and they'll starve. How is she going to keep her utilities on? The house is not safe, and the CPS are totally incompetent.

Child Protective Services states "the children are in no immediate danger - but we will check up and investigate later"

What planet are they on? Octomom locks the kids in their bedroom while she goofs off and doesn't want to deal with the kids. Filthy house, dirty kids, no shoes, poorly clothed, malnourished, pooping in the backyard on training potties because no working toilet except just one?

This is from the official report from the hairstylist:
the plumbing is a disaster ... there is only one working toilet in the house
-- some of the kids are pooping on portable training toilets located in their bedrooms and in the backyard
-- the kids appear malnourished and unbathed
-- she observed Octomom locking her kids in a bedroom while she tended to personal matters
-- the house is filthy

Foster care is not an option because there aren't any foster care homes that accept 14 kids. The kids would all be split up and never see their siblings. Nobody is going to adopt 14 kids. The second litter of the 8 kids are all autistic, physically disabled. All 14 kids have serious emotional problems.

The only solution is a rich millionaire buys a modest, middle class house to place the kids - and the rich millionaire hires professional child care workers, professional nannies and House Parents to run the place. The rich millionaire doesn't have to actually do the hands on parenting and child care - just check in a couple of times a week to insure the kids are well cared for.

I don't see any other way out of this.

I wish I lived near her, so I could help out. I think she is doing great for what she is going through. Everyone is so hard on her, my gosh. No one with limited funds can do any better then her. I wish a few church people would help. Why are so many people so against her. People make mistakes, she is trying as hard as she can.. give her a break.

Child Protective Services are a joke. Right now my granddaughter is living with my daughter's girlfriend. This woman has an extensive criminal history, half her own family is currently in jail, the man who raped my daughter lives in the same house (the police won't arrest him because she won't press charges)and I have proof that they are defrauding welfare and social security. I reported them numerous times but to no avail. My daughter resides at another address and has a a history of criminal and mental health problems. CPS said that since my granddaughter was in no immediate danger there was nothing they could do. I take care of my disabled wife and have little money to pay for a lawyer so there's nothing I can do. The only thing that CPS is good at is saving their own backsides from having to do any real work......

Although I do not approve of her and what she has done I would like to see her get a reality show. Her kids could certainly use a few million dollars a lot better than those Kartrashians.

Plumbing in her house needs repairs but she rather pays $580 for haircuts & hair treatment? Is there a way to keep a constant eye on this family? Let her keep & care for kids but someone should check on her constantly!
