Hmm. Is this a custody/visitation situation? Was dad CURTIS LEE LARMORE just granted shared custody this year?
Notice the following:
1) All this started in January, and happened EVERY OTHER WEEK.
2) During these weeks, Daddy left this little girl home every day between 11 AM and 7 PM.
2) There is no mention of a mother in the home. If there had been one, she no doubt would have been charged as well.
4) Notice that this little girl is now in the "custody of relatives."
So what happened to Mom? As usual, the reporting is incomplete and sketchy.
Father accused of leaving 4-year-old home while he worked

A Port St. Lucie, Fla., man was arrested on Monday after a tipster notified the police that the man was leaving his 4-year-old daughter at home alone all day.
Port St. Lucie police say Curtis Lee Larmore, 26, was allegedly leaving his preschool daughter home alone to fend for herself, Monday through Friday, between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m..
The tipster told police that the father had been leaving the youngster by herself since January, every other week.
The police report also noted that when officers investigated the home, the house was filthy and had strong cat urine odor. Police say the family cat used the little girl’s closet as a litter box. The child also had access to dangerous items, including a knife, scissors, a small torch — all within reach of the girl. The home also had an outdoor pool which was full of water and was not secured and the doors weren’t locked.
The little girl has since been turned over to the custody of relatives while Larmore faces charges of child abuse and child endangerment.
