Cops Follow Toddler Wandering Streets, Horrified By What They Find Inside His Home

Police were horrified after a 3-year-old toddler was found wandering the streets. The little boy was spotted in Norman, an Oklahoma neighborhood, covered in scratches, bruises and feces. Police were reportedly flagged down by a woman who spotted the toddler walking through a Sonic Drive-In before the child’s mother was called to collect him. After the toddler was again seen in the streets alone, police were forced to take action and decided to visit the mother at her apartment next to the drive-in. What they found was a disturbing scene.

After a 3-year-old toddler was found wandering through a Sonic Drive-In and a convenience store twice, police were forced to confront the toddler’s mother and ensure the child was not going to be left alone again. "A woman was sitting in the Sonic parking lot, she saw him cross by himself through the Sonic Drive-In and ended up in here, and that’s when she flagged me down," an OUPD officer confirmed. After the child was initially discovered, their mother was called and the child was returned safely home.

However, later that day, police again saw the child walking through the Sonic Drive-In, this time wearing no shoes, no pants and no underwear. The child was reportedly covered in superficial bruises, scratches and his own feces. The on-duty officer was horrified at the condition of the child and immediately decided to confront the mother in her apartment.

Police visited the child’s home, an apartment block next to the Sonic, and were left waiting for several minutes before anyone came to the door. When the neglected child’s mother, identified as Kimberly Dye, answered the door, she revealed the true, disgusting state that the child was living in. Norman Police Department PIO, Sarah Jensen, revealed that the apartment was “one of the most horrifying houses that they’ve walked into,” describing that the smell alone was incredibly overwhelming. Furthermore, it appeared that Ms. Dye did not even realize her own child was missing, telling police that he child “…was just in [the house],” when police asked if the toddler was missing.

Ms. Jensen went on to describe an apartment covered in animal and human feces, littered with rotten food and plagued with insects. "It was a difficult scene for our officers to walk into, so it was very hard for them that a child and another individual were actually living there," Jensen confessed.

After discovering the squalor, the child was living in, Ms. Dye was charged with neglect and a warrant is out for her arrest. The toddler was cleaned up and taken into protective custody. It is unknown whether the child will live with other relatives, with the DHS investigating a number of options.

This appalling incident follows another case of child endangerment, which led police to finding four children covered in dog feces at a home in the small town of Mart, Texas. Four adults were arrested after Child Protective Services attempted to complete a welfare check and were denied entry into the home, causing police to force their way into the home and discover the toddlers. Four adults were arrested and charged with child endangerment while the children were placed in protective custody.
