11 children removed from sex offender’s home after some were found tied to beds

  One month later, authorities are still trying to find out how the children were there

Child Protective Services removed 11 children from this home in Dayton, Texas last month.

DAYTON, Texas — Texas authorities said Tuesday they removed 11 children from a crowded home where a registered sex offender lives after they found eight confined in a small, dark bedroom with restraints tying some to their beds.

Along with the children, 10 adults were living in the one-story, 1,700-square-foot home in Dayton, about 30 miles northeast of Houston, Child Protective Services spokeswoman Gwen Carter said. One month after a raid on the house, authorities are still trying to determine how the children are related and why they were there, she said.

The children ranged in age from 5 months to 11 years. Three who were age 5 or older had not been enrolled in school, Carter said.

The children were removed after authorities found two 2-year-old children tied to a bed during a January visit to the home, according to a court document.

A legally blind, 5-year-old girl "was in a restraint on a filthy mattress, and appeared to be in a daze," the document said. One child had a black eye and knocked-out tooth.

The adults told investigators they tied the children when they slept or took a nap during the day "for safety," the document said. An investigator noted that none of the adults said they saw anything wrong with the arrangement.

Two of the children had what authorities feared was pneumonia and were taken to a children's hospital. All have since been placed in foster homes, Carter said.

The case is still under investigation, and Dayton Police Sgt. Doug O'Quinn said officials are looking into criminal charges. Liberty County District Attorney Mike Little said his office would present a case to a grand jury next month, but he declined to discuss possible suspects or charges.

"Our primary concern was to make sure that the children were stable and safe," Carter said.

The home with a "No Trespassing" sign out front is in a subdivision near land used for farming and ranching. A tricycle and other toys were in the backyard Tuesday, and several cars were parked outside.

People leaving the home declined to talk to media assembled outside, and other residents and their relatives declined to comment or didn't respond to phone messages.

One person in Texas' online sex offender registry listed the house as his address. Mark E. Marsh III was convicted in Michigan 15 years ago of criminal sexual conduct with a 15-year-old girl. He did not have a working phone number listed.

Neighbor Wayne Hardin said he never saw the youngest children and had no idea so many people were living in the house. Though he often saw eight or more cars parked outside, Hardin said he was told the residents had a big family.

"I was shocked," said Hardin, who had called police about loud music blaring from the house. "We didn't have a clue."

Along with the children, two teenage runaways with a stolen car were at the home, authorities said. The boys, both 16, admitted running away from foster homes, smoking marijuana and driving a car they knew was stolen, authorities said.

Carter said the home was not registered as a foster home or day care.

Sounds like a typical pedophile hell hole.
Chances are good the authorities will let the female pedophiles skate, and only prosecute the males.

The children will never have the life they should have had.

God help the children. God bless this situation and bring positive results to this situation, in Jesus name amen.

... may the adults receive counseling in health, information re: legal laws of not having multiple families in one house; and they do bear the weight of their crimes. Abuse and Harm, to the eleven children, harboring two teen age run away boys that stole a car ... 23 people living in the house had to be on top of each other, literally.

Evil. Pure evil. I notice one of the perps is pregnant. I pray they take the child from her before she does harm to it.

The only thing that shocks me anymore is the fact that God hasn’t taken His fist and knocked us into oblivion. I thank Him for His love and mercy.

Sure make you wonder just how much longer the Lord will Tarry.

Now, I ask anyone: The pregnant one.....why do they wear that type of clothing, it is gross. I do not want to see that big belly showing ANYTIME, EVER, it is disgusting. They seem so proud of being knocked up.

Yet, when not pregnant they will wear the maternity tops which are the style now (fits under the bust and flows out) I don't get it.

I once saw a young girl in a store wearing this princess style blouse, I asked her if she was pregnant, she said No, I asked her why she was wearing a maternity top. She gave me a dirty look, hahahahaha DO I care??? nah!

It is tacky. They have no modesty and don’t even know what it means. Worse yet they have no respect for themselves or the gift they are carrying. This very story proves that.

We are dealing with the MTV and Twilight crowd. Whatever the celebrity does they will emulate. Back in the day kids wanted to be individual. Now, all they are is immoral, immodest entitlement liberal sheeple. Worse yet, this is what we are leaving this beautiful country to. That breaks my heart.

I hope the Lord comes soon. His will be done in all things.

There is just so much wrong with this.

1.) End public “assistance” now. People who cannot provide for themselves should go on private charity.

2.) Everything else aside, what was the septic system like? The septic system for a 1700 square foot house is sized for about four people.

So true... I think people would be shocked and amazed if they heard some of the stories foster children from say 30-40 or so years ago have to tell. Like you said, it used to be that a community hid this kind of thing - the internet and the ability for information to travel so quickly has made that a relic of a bygone era (probably a good thing).

Regardless, I don’t think there’s been a uptick in this type of situation (the abuse and neglect) - it’s always been happening... I will say that living arrangements with more than one family WILL start happening more and more with the economy the way it is - just that the majority of those families won’t be moving in with a pedophile, or allowing their children to be neglected and abused!

I agree. So sad that those of us who have fought so hard for decency in America, will have to leave it to our future the shape it is now, and there is nothing we can do about it.

People (parents included) just love HOLLYWOOD and idolize RAP music too much to give it up. Let's face it, there are just BAD PARENTS to have raised such as this. Nothing is sacred any longer.

Oh, BTW did you know that the American Idol/Icon Whitney Houston died, committed suicide? Yes, she did.

Guess we are just old. (i am), and can't wait to get out of this mess, too disgusting to look at or listen to any more. In the meantime I will rant and pray.

What makes you think we have an omnipotent God? I believe God omnipresent. As you know you cannot force someone to love you.

God's law (aka Universal laws) are the rules to life IMHO. The 10 Commandments I believe was God's way simplify some Universal laws to everyone. That way there is no misunderstanding.

For instance, the law of attraction is we get back in life what we put out (aka Karma). That's why Jesus said forgive your enemies. It was not about kumbaya! It was to protect us from having what we put out boomerang right back to us. The only way to stop karma is through forgiveness. Forgiveness is more for you than for them.

There are other God laws like the law of Supply. This is why Capitalism beats out Communism every time. Communism goes against Universal law of Supply. Another law is the law gravity. I don't care how many times you step off the Empire State Building... you are going to fall! That is universal law. If you understand the law (rules to life), then life will begin to change for you. We manifest what we think about most. So if you want to change it think about what you want instead of what you do not want.

Science explains the how and Religion tells us why.

Yes I am old too. LOL

I know she dies, I couldn’t escape it, it was everywhere. You would think it was the second coming or something. They glorify an addict and spit on the Lord.

I heard excerpts from the spectacle and I understand Costner (?) said “armies of angels came to take her to Heaven”. I ranted and raved at that. I’m sorry sue died, but I’m sorrier she didn’t have the brains to know that crack is addictive. She made the wrong choice. Hollywood mentality.

Instead of being truthful about an unrepentant drug addict that desperately needed help they are making it look as if it’s okay to die from an overdose or just commit suicide.

That is todays mentality. I am old school so I knew modesty and morality. Today, those words are a punchline. Sad.

Sounds like a typical pedophile hell hole.

Convicted pedophiles should be executed.

However, the home may not be typical.

According the article in the NY Daily News, yes. According to other sources such as Post #5, in my opinion, the situation may not be so cut and dry.

-=] * IF * [=- the story is the same as the one in the video at KHOU in Texas in post #5 then there may be some mitigating circumstances that differ from some of the points made in the New York Daily News article. However, in my opinion, convicted and registered sex offenders, should always be treated as harshly as the law allows.

The comment on Whitney Houston was sarcasm, sorry I did not put the /s at the end.

I did not watch a second of that display of hypocrisy called a funeral.

Costner said WHAT? what does he know about anything truly heavenly? Hypocrite. He's hollyweird and PART OF THE PROBLEM himself, that glorifies the behavior of Crackheads and sleaze.

Sorry she died, well nothing to me, we are all terminal. It's just that she glorified her abusive life style and people still bought her product/cds and supported her.

Yet, we are the ones that are LAUGHED AT for being prudish and old fashioned??? rofl. I am still alive and doing well, joke on them. Nothing like clean living, NOTHING can beat it.

Oh my gosh. An institute of pedophilia and child abuse masquerading as a normal house is discovered, and you take offense at a normal pregnant look? If you are elderly enough to be shocked when I Love Lucy first showed a pregnant woman at all, I’m sorry. But today’s normal pregnant married woman is proud of her bump and does indeed dress like this when casual. It is no longer embarrassing to be pregnant.

I am not calling this particular woman normal. But normal pregnant women could easily be wearing a t shirt and jeans like that.

So, do you routinely ask people wearing shirts and dresses with an empire waist if they are pregnant? How rude of you!

I’m not defending THIS woman in particular, but why in the world would someone who obviously DOES value children say that this woman’s “big belly” is “gross” and “disgusting”...

Also, if you actually read the article it says that these women are the daughters of the Grandmother who own the home, and that they are MARRIED - not “knocked up” as you allege. Being married, according to “Christian Values” they have every right to be proud of being BLESSED with a gift from God in the form of a child. And, I dare say, even those who get “knocked up” as you so eloquently state, have every right to be proud of the BLESSING they have received as well.

The notion that a “big belly” and a growing human is “disgusting” probably leads more girls who are super-self-conscious to abortion (abortion activists are always talking about the baby as a “parasitic” organism, your attitude towards a natural, and beautiful process created BY GOD doesn’t help) - especially considering they have to deal with people like you judging them based upon no actual knowledge of their situation.

Yes (if you couldn’t tell by MY attitude I do take your comments personally), it was people like you who gave me dirty looks when I was pregnant and had my children - even though I had graduated High School, had a 5.0 GPA IN College, was married (to the father of ALL our children), and in my 20s. The “problem” was that both my husband and I appeared much younger than we really were and we saw with our own eyes the harsh judgmental stares that probably face every young couple who try to do the “right thing” (we’ve been together almost 22 years now and have four beautiful daughters). ESPECIALLY the harsh looks from the mothers of my childrens’ peers.

I’m not defending this family - I don’t know anything about them other than the article I read. However, you may want to re-examine your attitude. Maybe you are one of the ones the Lord is waiting for to come to their senses...

Remember, pride goeth before the fall... Or, have you forgotten. I don’t think ANY of us - all the sinners we are - have ANY right to believe we have lived a perfect life, or are better than others. This is the attitude you are displaying - it’s hardly a Christian value that you are putting forth into the world. The fruit of your comments on this thread have been harmful to others, and yet you are gloating of your holiness, and that you have supposedly been lucky enough to find the “narrow path”, and in your opinion not one of these people whose style isn’t suited to your taste is going to hell? That log in your eye must be quite large to not see that you are just as much a sinner as the rest of us - if not more because the rest of us admit our mistakes when you seem to believe you’ve made none, and your judgement is as pure as God’s.

The NEW pregnant style in clothes is DISGUSTING. Same as looking a some fat slob with their belly hanging out. COVER UP, we all know what go into you. The WET Tshirt look is horrible.

Pregnancy is wedlock is wonderful, out of wedlock disgusting. Sorry if that offends you, it's MY OPINION and I state it here in FR. OK?

I agree completely, I was 22 and married when I had our dear daughter. While most of her friends’ parents are older than my husband and myself, they are not as much older as they may think, as we still look younger than we are.
I am currently pregnant with our 3rd baby. At this moment, I am wearing jeans and the oh so disgusting maternity top. Goodness, I do hope I’m not offending anyone, with my happiness at being, well, not knocked up, as I’m still married to the same man, but I am proud to be expecting a dear baby in a few months...I’m fairly modest (as evidenced by my hunt for swimwear that was not skin tight...would you believe I had to dig through bikinis with THONGS! for our upcoming trip, all I wanted was a skirt on bottom and something flowy and bust covering on top), but I do not see the need to wear a muumuu or hide under a huge sweater just because I am pregnant with my husband’s and my baby. Of course, I’m not going out with one of those belly tops (they have a hole for the belly to peek through). Perhaps I should stay at home and only venture out when my husband can escort me, so to avoid the possibility of passersby suspecting that I may be an unwed pregnant person...

I am not defending the photographed person. I do not know anymore than you, or the previous poster. I just wanted to back you up on the no need to be embarrassed about being blessed with a baby front. :)

Re: the abortion issue, OH MY. They do this because they want to, not from any looks they may get. They alone are responsible for ALL their decisions, they chose to get pregnant and they chose to abort. DECISIONS

What God has created is beautiful. We are talking about the exposure of the pregnant body, which is not appealing and should be covered by more than a TSHIRT.

Sorry about the stares you got, and can't tell the reason for that.

I had 4 children, and NEVER was I stared at and I appeared much younger than I was as well. I wore PROPER MATERNITY CLOTHING. Modesty.

Ten adults and 11 children - 21 people - ‘living’ in a 1700sf house!!!!

No matter what else happened, the authority roles of the adults, toward the children, simply in a reality sense, had to be akin to living in a commune.

It would not seem odd at all, given the circumstances, that some of the children were restrained to keep them from pestering the adults for attention. G-d only knows what the ten adults were up to.

Pray for the children.

We never said we weren’t sinners, but there are those that are so intent in getting out their opinion according to the way they live they never once consider themselves to be wrong. Saying someone is harming people because someone defended modesty and morality is juvenile.

Yes, I am a sinner but I have never gone halfnaked in public nor have I ever done drugs. Some people need to crack a bible and not only read the words but listen to them and understand them. I am not a judge, that’s the Lords job, and if it offends some because others have the guts to see the difference between good and bad then so be it. Judge away and the Lord will take care of the rest.

Hang in there Annie.
