January 02 the Livingston County Sheriff's Office (LCSO) responded to a location in southern Livingston County after a citizen reported possible child neglect. The report indicated 2 small children were found to be in a grotesque conditions with horrible odor of feces, urine and rotting food. One deputy reported he had to leave the interior of the home to vomit due to the conditions. The home also had no running water and the occupants were utilizing "buckets" for all their needs.

Two small children were removed from the home and taken to Hedrick Medical Center for examination. The children had reportedly been in the home since December 31 when one or more care takers had dropped the kids off so they could go party.

Division of Family Services was notified as was Senior Services due to the living conditions for an elderly resident.

Report indicates the father has one or more outstanding arrest warrants.

Investigation continues.
