Proud Parents: In The News

Pictured above is 47 year old William Todd Lewallen, of Tulsa. Charged with child neglect, police arrived at his door after receiving a call from a neighbour that found his young daughter outside of the house crying, naked and cold. When William didn’t answer the door, the neighbour brought the child back to his house and called the police. What happened next is even worse.

Upon forcefully entering the home, they found the cage pictured above with an 18 month old baby inside, covered in her own feces. Moving through the home they found a 3 year old sleeping in another room with their father, William, who passed out from a drug and alcohol induced stupor.

A toddler was found in a cage, his dad was found drunk and was arrested by police. On Nov. 13, ABC News reported that a Tulsa, Oklahoma man was in an “induced stupor” on Sunday afternoon. A neighbor saw the man’s 4-year-old daughter outside, naked, on a cold day and decided to go knock on the door. After no one answered, the police were called.

“After forcing their way inside, police discovered the toddler was covered in feces and that a 3-year-old child was asleep in another room. Their father was found asleep on a bed, ‘in an alcohol- or narcotics-induced stupor,'” explained Officer Leland Ashley. The three children were taken in to custody by the Department of Human Services—their dad was promptly arrested.

When a toddler is found in a cage, that’s one thing… however there was a lot more wrong with this scenario. It is unknown if the man put his child in the dog crate or whether the child managed to get in there himself. Either way, the child was covered in feces and all three children were unattended which is the real problem here.

The children’s mother was at work and came home to an awful situation at home. She was not arrested, but it’s clear that she is left picking up the pieces after this incredible incident. It is unknown whether or not she plans to bail out her children’s father, who is being held on $50,000 bond.

A toddler found in a cage is only one part of this story. The father is a huge puzzle piece. According to ABC News, a man by the same name—with the same birth date—plead guilty to possession of a precursor to manufacture methamphetamine back in August.

  1. Why must we take a test to drive a car but any idiot can reproduce? Maybe we should take a lesson from China. Not so much the limit on kids but at least apply for a permit and make sure meth dealers aren’t reproducing.

  7. This guy should have to go through what he did to the kids before being put to death. That would save tax payers alot of money and guarentee that he wouldn’t do it again. A charge of drug manufacturing alone should of been a red flag and she should of taken the kids and gotten out of there. But staying with him after the drug charge makes her a bad parent as well. How do you not know what your spouse is up to and stay? she should share the same fate.

  11. He’s 47? I’m 51 but still don’t look as rough as that.

    My sympathies to the children.

  13. Just take him out, have him dig a deep hole, stand in it, then shoot him.

  15. I’m sorry, but the mother is equally guilty for this one. Even if you work majority of the time, you still come home and must notice the environment that your children are living in. This is when she should have taken all her kids and left. Don’t get me wrong every child needs a father in their lives. However, if the father is submitting them to extreme neglect, it is much better to be a single mother then subject your children to a hopeless dad. Fucking assholes.

  17. “..the mother was at work…” I wonder how much she is implicated in this barbarous mistreatment of innocent children. Good going police!
