LEE COUNTY, Ala. (WRBL) – A Smiths Station mother, grandfather, and grandmother are facing charges in what Lee County investigators are calling a chilling case of child abuse involving a real-life house of horrors.
Monday, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office received information regarding a possible child abuse situation at a location in the city of Smiths Station in southeast Lee County.
Sheriff’s investigators and personnel from the Lee County Department of Human resources conducted a welfare check at a home on Lee Road and made contact with four children ages 3, 4, 10 and 11 years old.
“During the contact, investigators observed two wood constructed cages that had hasps and locks present. Investigation revealed evidence the children had been locked in the cages on multiple occasions. Investigators discovered that a fifth child, age 8 months, also resided at the residence but was not present at the time of contact,” Sheriff Jay Jones said.
All five children have been removed from the residence and are in the care of Lee County D.H.R.
