On suspecting that this coulpe could be in possession of dangerous weapons, the police subsequently decided to search their family home. What they did not expect to discover at all was this upsetting case of child abuse.
The events took place in Tulelake, California. For some time now, the police had begun to investigate Ramón Zandejas and Mercadies Williams, a young couple of delinquents. They waited to have enough evidence of their possession of dangerous weapons before proceeding to search their family home.
When they finally entered the house, they found a sight as unexpected as it was upsetting: an arsenal of weapons, ammunition, methamphetamine and other drugs.
But this was not the worst part. The search of the house revealed its most macabre scenein one of the rooms: the room where they had caged two of their infant children, under two years of age.
They had modified two wooden cradles in such a way that they had been assembled and fitted against the wall, forming a kind of wooden cage (you can see it in the video).
The children have since been placed in social services' custody, and Zandejas and Williams have already gone to prison. They have been charged with the possession of firearms and child abuse.
