In Boise, Idaho, the police received a report on Thursday morning regarding a deceased teenager and found him, along with seven other children still alive, living in terrible conditions in a house in Boise.

Boise Police stated they received a call from someone who found their teenage son dead shortly after 8 a.m. The Ada County Coroner’s Office is working on determining the cause and manner of death.

Lieutenant Josiah Ransom from the Special Victims Unit described the conditions inside the home as “deplorable, dangerous, and some of the worst” he has encountered in his career. He mentioned that the home was not suitable for anyone to live in. The smell alone made the responding officers feel nauseated.

Boise Police Chief Ron Winegar stated, “It is always distressing when a young person passes away, and our officers and detectives are working hard to figure out what factors may have led to this situation and if anything could have been done to prevent it. We will not know until the investigation is complete whether this teen’s death was due to an ongoing medical situation/complication or some other contributing factor, and I offer my condolences for the loss of this young boy.”

The Department of Health and Welfare took the remaining seven children into custody.

The investigators mentioned that “all those associated” with the residence are cooperating with the investigation. No charges have been filed.
