Truly Disturbing Headline: Baby Found Alone In MAGGOT-INFESTED House While Mother Was Out Partying

A Florida mother has denied she was neglectful after child welfare services took her baby because they said she left him in a maggot infested house alone. Read on for the details.

A neighbor of 20 year old Ellen Burns phoned the sheriff on Saturday night to report that she had left her child home alone while she headed out to party.

According to her arrest affidavit, when deputies arrived to her home in Groveland they discovered the child asleep in his crib and that the home was filthy.

They took photos that showed the house had a clogged-up toilet, dangerously exposed wiring, maggots in the kitchen and a bottle of baby formula which had crusted over at the teat.

They also called the Department of Children and Families who discovered a rash on his genitals and torso when they examined his body.

‘This is the longest I’ve ever been away from him. That is my baby. I don’t leave him. I don’t like to leave him with anybody I don’t trust,’ said Burns.

However, the DCF said that they are working to restore the child to his mother’s care.
