A Neighbour Brought Food To Starving Siblings, 7, 10, and 15, and Charged Their Cellphones After The Power Went Out

The three abandoned children who were discovered marooned in filthy conditions in a Houston home alongside the skeletal remains of their nine-year-old brother who’d been dead for more than a year managed to survive thanks to a helpful neighbour.

The children’s mum and her boyfriend were interviewed and released by law enforcement officials, and child welfare services in Texas have also started an investigation.

According to law enforcement officials, the mother and her boyfriend left the children alone for numerous months. Occasionally, the mother would return to bring the kids food.

The three children were taken to a hospital for treatment and a post-mortem is being carried out on the fourth child to determine the cause of mortality.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Department told a news outlet that an unidentified Good Samaritan who lived in a nearby apartment complex in Houston brought the three children food and charged their phones after the electricity was cut in their house.

However, it’s not clear why she didn’t report the neglected children to the police or child protective services, and a fellow resident said that if the person was bringing them food to eat, they must have seen that child.

Law enforcement officials said that the neighbour was helping the three children, ages 7, 10, and 15, for at least the last two weeks, and according to investigators, the 15-year-old said that the parents hadn’t been living at the home for weeks, effectively abandoning the children to be on their own.

KPRC-TV reported that when the police arrived at the home, they discovered the brother’s skeletal remains out in the open and that the two younger boys appeared to be malnourished and according to law enforcement officials showed signs of physical harm.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez told reporters that it appeared that they had been fending for each other and that the older sibling was doing the best he could to take care of the others.

In an update, Gonzalez announced that the children’s mother and her boyfriend had been found and questioned by homicide detectives.

The sheriff stated that the couple had been released without being arrested or charged with any wrongdoing, and no explanation was given for the decision to let the pair go at the time.

You have to feel sorry for the poor children, and I guess that we really do live with monsters around us, and the scary thing is sometimes you don’t even know who they are until it’s too late.

Some parents never seem to care about their children, and not enough gets reported to the police.

How these children will ever recover from this kind of treatment is beyond me, and so many people are bitter and divided, with poverty increasing from all the economic statistics, despite the increasing wealth, which means that the US is turning into the very thing that their founding fathers didn’t want, and how is this happening in today’s world – is no one paying attention?

And the two burning questions that I’m sure everyone has on their mind, is why were the mother and boyfriend released?

It clearly stated that the mother would periodically bring food to the children, so she was aware of the conditions, and secondly, why did the neighbours fail these children? It was kind of the neighbour to take these children food, but why did she not contact the police?

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
