Pennsylvania police had been on the look out for a 29-year-father since the summer, when their noses led them to where he had been hiding out with 11 children. When they opened the door to his rancid den, the hair on the back of their necks stood up after what they found.
A warrant for aggravated assault had been issued for the father several months prior, which ultimately led to the disturbing bust this week when Dauphin County Children and Youth Services declared him a danger to the kids. But it took at least five months since the warrant was issued to arrest him in the same house he lived in when he broke the law in the first place. Meanwhile, the children suffered for it.
It’s not known how many of the 11 kids biologically belonged to Tyree R. Fluellen, but they all lived with him and at least one woman in cramped and filthy quarters. PennLivereports that when officers arrived to the Stilton home, they were overcome with a fleshy, rotting stench at the door. It only got worse as they walked through the condemned residence.
