Parents Flee After Allegations Of Sexual Abuse, Children Placed In Protective Custody

Posted: Updated:
Two young children have been placed in protective custody in Wayne County after allegations of sexual abuse by their parents. Because of their age, police are restricted as to how much information they can release about the case.  


However, the condition of the home that the children were living in speaks volumes. 


It may never be known exactly what happened in the house, but looking at the garbage laden yard, it is clear that the dwelling was anything but a home. 


John and Jacqueline Fawcett are said to be running from police which, perhaps, explains why they wouldn't answer the door for our reporter. 

The local police have been making regular visits to the Fawcett place for a month.  Now though, with allegations of sexual abuse surfacing, it appears as though they've taken off. 

The neighbors are concerned too. 

"We have seen cops for the past month," one neighbor said. "We just didn't know what was going on."

The neighbor wished to remain anonymous, but said that they suspected something was going on when one of the children started acting at school and on a bus ride home. 

The neighbor told the reporter that the child was "torturing the other kids really aggressive spitting biting that kinda thing." 

LEX 18 will continue to follow this story, but as of now, it appears that as allegations mounted, the Fawcetts left town in a hurry. 

Police are still investigating the case.
