Aiken Baby Found Eating Trash; Parents Charged

-

A baby boy was taken from his parents last Wednesday after he was found living in a filthy house filled with items stolen in burglaries.

The parents, Raven Octavia Williams, 20, and Carl Lorenzo Taylor, 21, the 1200 block of York Street, Aiken, were arrested and charged with unlawful neglect of a child and possession of marijuana, an Aiken Department of Public Safety report said.

Williams also was charged with giving false information to law enforcement. Taylor was charged with burglary 2nd degree and receiving stolen goods, $10,000 or more, the report said.

Investigators went to the couple’s apartment as part of a burglary investigation. They found the stolen items and also observed illegal drug activity, leading to the seizure of marijuana, the report said.

But even more disturbing was the sight of a baby crawling around the couple’s filthy apartment, chewing on trash from the floor including coins, a Q-tip and a hair weave, the report said.

The apartment had only one bed and when asked where the child slept, Williams said usually in the bed with her and Taylor.

The kitchen was a horror with a large amount of trash in the pantry. Williams said taking the trash out was not the sort of thing she did around the house. Small roaches were crawling on the pantry door and dirty dishes filled the sink.

The baby was placed with friends of Williams by the Aiken County Department of Social Services, the report said.

  1. wow. Good job, Aiken County. I’m sure friends of these two will make excellent guardians. Is this just until somebody musters the energy to clean and take the trash out? Between robberies, of course.

  2. What a sick way to treat your child, make these two sickos eat garbage for a month and then throw them in jail and let them rot in there for life, anyone who treats a child with such cruelty shouldn’t be even allowed to even breathe our good clean air.

  3. Bet if you told em that you lost some dope in that pantry , it would’ve been cleaned immediately and spotless but i guess that’s”them people” for ya. Ain’t worth the paper I use to wipe my ass with. Probably take the kid with em while they out thieving, god just hurry up and kill your kind off already,I mean it’s being done everyday,the killing of each other, just increase the rate of speed at which you all are doing it. Speed up to the Chicago rate of death lol
