After the investigation on March 8th, authorities arrested the teen’s mother Brooke Hinkle for the deplorable conditions that the teenager lived in at her home.

According to the report, the child was forced to live in a home occupied by feces, roaches, and drugs.

Authorities say the mother sold all of the guns but kept the ammunition.
