A mother who gives birth to the kids, cares for them and tries her best to give them all the comforts beyond her limit. She can live without food but can not keep her children hungry. What if I say, there is a mother who eats all the food of her kids and keeps them starve. You won't believe, isn't it?
But there is a 27-year-old mother, Lakisha Connors of 7 kids who used to do so but on the complaint of her neighbours, the police arrested her.
Lakisha Connors, the mother of 7 was arrested when her neighbours called the cops when they found extremely skinny children who were looking for food so desperately and they were very near to death due to hunger.
The 3-year-old Amonte Connors and 5-year-old Dante Connors greeted the police and let them enter in the house when the police knocked the door. Their mother was found on the couch when the police entered in the house.
Police said, "When we enter the home, we found seven children who looked extremely malnourished. In addition to that there was a lock on the refrigerator and all nonperishable foods were locked in a huge wooden makeshift storage container in the mother's bedroom."
Around six weeks ago, she shifted into the rental home. One of her neighbours said, "Lakisha just moved in not too long ago. This was the first time I had ever seen any children!"
Another neighbour said, "But we see her almost every day coming into the house with groceries. So for her children to be starting like that was absolutely shocking!"
"When asked why her children were in this condition, Lakisha plainly said, without any remorse, 'There was only enough food for me! Them kids get on my nerves. But they eat, they eat my scraps. I'm a big girl I need more than them!'" All the 7 children who are in between the age of 1 to 11, were taken by Child Protective Services.
