The front yard of the house in the quiet neighborhood in Perris, Calif., was often overgrown with weeds nearly six feet tall. There were no toys, no bicycles in the front yard, neighbors said. More than a dozen children supposedly lived inside the home, but they never came outside to play.
"13 Siblings, Some Shackled and Malnourished, Rescued from California House, Police Say" is from the January 16, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Samantha Schmidt and Lindsey Bever and narrated by Sam Scholl.
