3 Year Old Found Locked in Cage Amid Search Warrant issued in Sexual Assault Investigation

On Sunday, Detectives with the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio, executed a search warrant on a home on Bear Run Road, in relation to a sexual assault investigation.

During the search of the home, which was in deplorable conditions, officers found a three-year-old child inside a cage that had been secured with zip ties. The cage was filled with bugs, soiled bedding, and a cup of spoiled milk.

Also in the home, a two-year-old was found walking around holding a methamphetamine pipe.

Both children were taken into emergency custody and placed in emergency foster care. The parents of the children Franklin “TJ” Varney 38, and Megan Smith 25 fled the home when the search warrant was issued due to their involvement with the sexual assault according to Sheriff’s office.

Ella Webb 61, the grandmother of the children, who also has custody of them, was arrested and charged with endangering the children, a third-degree felony.

Hocking County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Caleb J. Moritz said “I very, very strongly encourage Mr. Varney and Ms. Smith to immediately surrender themselves to law enforcement. If they choose to run from their responsibilities, as they did tonight, the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office will tirelessly leverage every local, State, and Federal resource available to bring these two to justice.”

In our view:

Many on the right would seek to make an argument that criminals are more brazen under Democrat rule. While it is tough to make a direct connection in this case, those who appreciate law and order may want to take note of what evil people are sadly capable of.
