Two Wacoans are each facing three charges of endangering a child after police witnessed their living conditions.

Jeremy Turley, 33, and Bridgett Aldrich, 22, are accused of housing Aldrich’s three young boys in deplorable conditions.

Waco P.D. were serving a warrant at their residence when they noticed trash piled on the ground and food rotting in the living room.

They noticed the kids looked unbathed and even had fungus growing on their feet from walking around the dirty apartment; That’s when officers made the call to remove the kids and place the two under arrest.

“All three were males younger than ten, said Sgt. Patrick Swanton. They were released to a family member that can care for them properly and see that they were cleaned up and got medical and clean clothes that they needed.”

Turley has bonded out of jail but Aldrich, the mother of the children, remains in the McLennan County Jail.

So many things wrong in this article. 1st, the boys had athletes feet from not keeping their socks on with their shoes, and have been treated by local hospitals already previous to this happening. You might want to also check the age of Mrs Aldrich, which is incorrect. This is a very sad situation for everyone involved and its also sad that you feel the need to fill up space on your news cast declaring the unfortunate situation of those boys. They were not released to a family member either.
