Dad leaves 3-year-old daughter home alone in pig pen; was found by bail bondsman(?) (Claycomo, Missouri)

A BAIL BONDSMAN found the girl at home alone? Methinks some mighty important details are being left out of the story. Or is this related to Daddy's shoplifting?

Like, what else has Daddy been up to, besides abandoning a toddler in a pig pen?

Also, I am tending to think the parents did not live together. If they had, I don't think it would have been necessary to "contact" mom. Plus, Mom would have been held responsible for the dirty house, which apparently did not happen.

So our next unanswered question: Was this a custody/visitation issue? Was Daddy's access court-ordered? Was this visit "voluntary" on Mom's part? Not that "voluntary" means much these days, as we frequently point out. If you're not perceived as being "accommodating," you will lose your parental rights--at least if you're a mother.

CLAYCOMO, Mo. — A bail bondsman found a 3-year-old girl alone in a home in Claycomo, and police say it was her father who left her behind.

The home was also reportedly littered with clutter and filthy. Police think the child may have been there for about five hours. When police arrived at the home, they had to cut a padlock off the front door.

Police say the father arrived home at about 2:00 p.m. They say they found him in possession of stolen items and believe he had been shoplifting.

The Division of Family Services was called in, who contacted the mother. She said she didn’t know the father was leaving their daughter at home. DFS released the child to the mother. The father faces charges of child endangerment.
