Three people are facing felony charges after two toddlers were found living in disgusting conditions and physically abused.
The kids parents, Christopher and Megan Logan, are charged with child abuse by injury, child neglect and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Christopher's father, Ricky Logan, who lived with the family, is charged with enabling child neglect, enabling child abuse and failure to report child abuse.
Police were first called to the family's home after a concerned citizen spotted the two kids, a 3-year-old and a 2-year-old, filthy and playing outside unsupervised. According to an affidavit, when officers knocked on the door, Christopher was the only one home and "appeared to have awoken as a result of [police] knocking."
Inside, officers discovered the living room was full of "filth, trash and a mattress with animal feces on top of it" as well as roaches found all over the home.
The affidavit states, after she arrived to the home, officers asked Megan when the last time was that she smoked methamphetamine. She said she smoked two days before but didn't smoke in the house and she kept "her stuff in the kid's play room out of reach from the kids."
Christopher also told police he smoked marijuana but not in the home and also kept his pipe and grinder "in the playroom."
"We do see that sometimes," Tyner said. "Parents will keep it where the kids play, they don’t think the police will look there but that is a particularly sad portion of the case, that’s for sure."
The kids were taken to a hospital for a check-up by the DHS worker. She later told investigators it was discovered there was "a cigarette burn on the 3-year-old's left shoulder, bruising on the 2-year-old's left butt cheek which appeared to have some sort of pattern," the youngest also had lice and there was "dirt and filth throughout both children's bodies."
According to police, Ricky told officers "the kids are usually naked in the house for potty training." He also allegedly said "I didn't have any idea there were drugs being used in the house, and I didn't know about the condition of the house. My room was that first bedroom right by the front-door that Christopher was sleeping in. I stay in my room, and I work a lot. I just don't know what's going on in the house."
