Children found tied to beds in Texas home

Continue reading below

DAYTON, Texas - Texas authorities said yesterday that they have removed 11 children from a crowded home where a registered sex offender lives after they found eight of them confined in a small, dark bedroom with restraints tying some to their beds.

Along with the children, 10 adults were living in the one-story, 1,700-square-foot home in Dayton, about 30 miles northeast of Houston, according to a Child Protective Services spokeswoman, Gwen Carter. One month after a raid on the house, authorities are still trying to determine how the children are related and why they were there, she said. The children ranged in age from 5 months to 11 years. Three who were age 5 or older had not been enrolled in school, Carter said.

The children were removed after authorities found two 2-year-old children tied to a bed during a visit to the home, according to a court document. The adults reportedly said they tied the children when they slept “for safety.’’
