74 Children Are Missing From Kansas’ Foster Care System

Over 70 children are missing from Kansas’ foster care system. This shocking number was revealed by two companies running the state’s foster care system at a child welfare task force meeting on Tuesday.

Phyllis Gilmore, secretary of the Kansas Department for Children and Families, was allegedly unaware of at least some of the missing children. According to the Kansas City Star, several lawmakers were furious that Gilmore seemed unaware that three sisters, ages 15, 14 and 12, have been missing since August. Emily, Aimee and Christin Utter (pictured above) have been missing for 47 days. Lt. Jarrod Gill with the Tonganoxie Police Department told the Kansas City Star that the three sisters likely ran away after experiencing problems in their home. He thinks they are probably together, and receiving assistance from at least one other person.

“I am flabbergasted,” Sen. Laura Kelly said.  “I used to work in this world

Young Mom Caught Filming Herself Have Sex With Children And Selling The Videos Online

A young mother was arrested in Arizona after her friend discovered she had allegedly molested two children and sold the videos over the internet, Fox 10 Phoenix reports.

Keri Harwood, 28, allegedly molested the two children multiple times in the bathroom of her home. Her friend discovered the videos after Harwood gave her friend access to her Pokémon Go account login information.

Because the Pokémon Go account was attached to Harwood’s Gmail account, her friend was able to see her emails. 

In these emails, she was allegedly able to see two videos showing the children being sexually abused. She also saw PayPal transactions ranging from $50 to $115, apparently for access to these videos.

Police claim that Harwood told them that she had masturbated over video for a man she met online, in exchange for money. She received between $500 and $600 from this man over several months, police claim.

Mom Who Killed Her Children Now Also Admits To Killing Neighbor

An Indiana mother who admitted she killed her two young children is now facing charges for murdering her neighbor.

Less than two weeks ago, 29-year-old Amber Pasztor pleaded guilty to killing her two children, 7-year-old Liliana Hernandez and 6-year-old Rene Pasztor. On Tuesday, more murder charges were filed against the mother for the killing of Frank Macomber, according to Fox59.

The mother had suffocated her children and then drove to the Elkhart Police Department. She reportedly admitted to killing Macomber, her neighbor, with his own rifle before taking his car. Pasztor told police that her two children were in the backseat of the car and that she smothered them to death.

She faces 130 years at her sentencing at the end of the month.

Man Arrested After Five Children Found Living Among Bugs, Feces, Rotten Food

A Dallas man was arrested for child endangerment after police found five young, malnourished children living in his dangerously filthy apartment, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Police were called to the house Tuesday afternoon after a neighbor reported that they heard a baby crying for a long time with no response, police claimed.

When police knocked on the door, John Moton, 33, allegedly yelled “What do you want?” at the officers, according to the arrest warrant affidavit. When he let them inside, officers noticed that the apartment smelled strongly of feces and rotting food, making it difficult to “walk through without vomiting,” the affidavit said.

Moton allegedly refused to identify himself or the children. He refused to comply with any demands and allegedly kept one hand at his waistband, requiring an officer to use a stun gun to subdue him so they could handcuff him, the report said.

In the living room, officers
