Child found beaten and starved, then it gets weird

Child Found Beaten, Starved in Closet; Mom Arrested:

Police in Apple Valley, California arrested 31-year-old Desiree Gonzales after an anonymous tipster told police that her son was being abused. When police got there they found her 5-year-old son in a closet, emaciated and covered with bruises.

Also arrested was her 16-year-old male ‘roommate’.

Police said it appeared that both of them were on meth and that they had L.A. gang connections.

And 9 other children were moved from the home. Not a typo, nine. Allegedly the 5-year-old was the only one that belonged to Gonzales.

And there were two other adults that weren’t charged.

If it wasn’t for the fact that a child was being abused this would almost be comical.

I never knew that you could smoke meth in a clown car.

Thanks to Bridget for the tip.
