On arrival deputies heard children inside the barn. The barn was roughly fashioned into living quarters.
They also found cuts on Fabila’s face.
Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin also said the all the children were hungry and thirsty even though there was plenty of food in the barn. The kids were kept away from the food as the sheriff found all the cabinets were kept locked.
“I’ve not worked one where children are locked inside a dog kennel, and I find that absolutely disgusting.”
The children are kept in the Cook Children’s Medical Center for evaluation. Currently there are not in State Custody.
