Clarksville Police charge three Adults with Child Neglect after Welfare check reveals deplorable Living Conditions

 

Clarksville Police DepartmentClarksville, TN – On March 7th, 2013, around 3:40pm, Clarksville Police were called to perform a welfare check at 1812 Apex Drive after receiving a 911 call about a residence which was filthy, packed with trash, and children were seen at the house.

Officer Jeffrey Jackson arrived and asked if he could check on the welfare of the children based on the 911 call which Police received.  He was allowed inside of the residence and likened the residence to that of a hoarder.

Clarksville Police charged Tricia Guerra, William Suttles and Donna Suttles with Child Abuse/Neglect.

There was a strong smell of urine inside the house along with the sight of visible trash everywhere. He saw dirty dishes piled high in the kitchen with even more trash and clutter.

He found two children, one and three years of age, unsupervised in the basement and that there was no path or walkway visible.

Another officer, Josh Godwin, checked on the seven and nine year old children who were in the back bedroom. The officers observed the same conditions in the bedroom as in the basement and living room. Additionally, a fifteen year old child in the living room, disabled and confined to a wheel chair, had no pathway to be able to move around.

Department of Children’s Services was contacted and responded immediately.  The house was determined to be in a state of Environmental Neglect. The children were removed the residence and placed into states custody or with another family member.
