LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two people have been arrested and charged with criminal abuse after police say three children were found in a "horrendous" home severely infested with bedbugs and cockroaches.
According to an arrest report, police were sent to the home in the 5400 block Tracy Way in the Hazelwood neighborhood Thursday night. Police say someone called a child abuse hotline with a tip, asking authorities to check on a 7-year-old girl after she showed up at school with a cut on her lip.

When officers arrived at the home and knocked on the door, 38-year-old Sean Landrey answered and let them in. Police say they found the home severely infested with cockroaches, cockroach feces and bedbugs.
Police say they could see cockroaches, alive and dead, along the baseboards of the home.
In one bedroom, police say they found a 4-year-old and 5-year-old sitting on a twin bed that was much too small for both of them. A 7-year-old girl was sitting on a twin bed next to them.
Police say the children were in dirty clothing and told the officers that when they sleep, "they have bugs crawl on them and bite them." Police say the mattresses were covered with filth as well as dead and alive cockroaches and cockroach feces.
In another bedroom, police say they found a crib with a 2-year-old inside it. Police say the 2-year-old was in dirty clothes and that there were "hundreds" of baby cockroaches in the crib with the child, along with cockroach feces.

The Appalachian Hillbillies are TRULY scary - and inbred.

The Civil War eliminated all the good men from the South - and left the TRASH.
