Two Daughters Trapped In Home With Dead Body For Over A Week

Posted: Updated:

Two daughters, ages 5 and 6, were found in their home, alone with their father who laid face-down and naked on the couch with a gun nearby.

Neighbors found the girls after peeking in the window to see the horrific scene.

"How were they able to survive a week without food, without water and just the smell. We could smell through our apartments. I can't even imagine the smell being inside with a dead body," said Tameka Head, neighbor.

The two girls were taken to Nationwide Children's Hospital to be checked out and are now in foster care.
