Kids found living in filth

Play video for a look at some of the trash piled at the curb

(KFDX) Police in Bowie, Texas say they found five children, ages 3 months to 8-years-old, home alone in what can only be described as nauseating and heartbreaking filth.

Their mother, Jessica Dawn Lazek Petroni, told them she left them alone to go to a doctor’s appointment, but investigators say her excuses do not add up.

Officers said there is still so much more inside the home.
