    https://www.khon2.com/news/national...ld's skeletal remains,and was inside the home.

    "A child’s skeletal remains and three other children who were apparently abandoned were found in a Texas apartment on Sunday, authorities said.

    The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said a 15-year-old called to report his 9-year-old brother had been dead for a year and was inside the home. The teen told authorities that his deceased brother was in the room next to his. Deputies found the body as well as the teen and two other siblings ages 10 and 7.

    He said the three surviving children were taken to a hospital to be assessed and treated.

    The sheriff said it appears the surviving children were fending for each other and that the parents had not lived in the apartment for several months.

    The children’s mother and her boyfriend were later located and were being questioned."

    Questioned? Lock their butts up! Thats just crazy.

    I saw that story earlier today. What kind of parents would just leave their children unattended to fend for themselves? Where were they? The article said they were in an apartment, but how was the rent being paid? Didn't anybody notice?

    I thought the same things. Someone had to be paying for the apartment or notice something. The whole thing is just crazy.

    There are no new developments this morning regarding the scene on Green Crest. Mother and her boyfriend were located, interviewed and released. CPS is assisting with the children. Our investigation remains on-going. No charges have been filed. #HouNews

    I'm going to bet that at some point there will be charges of negligence filed against the mother.

    But then again, it's Texas.

    Are you saying that mainly because Texas is a red state and you're a blue fan?

    And yes I hope she gets charged and convicted.

    I wonder why this couple kept having children, when they were unable or unwilling to care for them.

    Yet another argument for licensing parenthood....

    I don't see this as political, sadly you do.
    What I mean by sadly is by making everything political most times makes it worse and takes the focus off of the main problem/point. But thats my opinion.(example, when the virus was made political, the politics took a front seat to the virus)

    Ok. If you would explain what you mean by
    "But then again, it's Texas.". That way I will understand your comment.
    Please and thank you.

    Mother of 3 abandoned boys and dead brother speaks out

    Williams is charged with injury to a child by omission and tampering with evidence (human corpse).

    Her boyfriend, 32-year-old Brian Coulter, is charged with killing Kendrick.

    Investigators say Williams failed to protect them or get them help despite her boyfriend allegedly beating one of them to death and continuing to abuse the others.

    Asked what happened, Williams told KHOU reporter Grace White, "I'm sorry. I didn't do it."

    When White asked Williams if she knew Kendrick was dead, her response was a simple "No."

    But according to court documents, investigators say Williams altered, destroyed and concealed Kendrick's body to get rid of evidence.

    When White asked Williams why she left the kids alone, she said, "I checked on them every two weeks."

    But when pressed, she didn't want to elaborate.
