Coeur d' Alene Children Found Living In Feces; Mom & Grandmother Arrested

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - Two women are facing two felony counts of injury to a child after being arrested for allowing two young girls to live in what is described as "the absolute worst living conditions a child could be subjected to."

A witness walked past the apartment of Elisabeth Crossley and Ruth Cassidy and noticed through the window that two girls were lying naked on the floor. They called police to check on their welfare. According the police report when officers arrived they found fecal matter smeared across the walls, and the carpets were covered in urine and feces. The girls had dried feces in their hair and on their skin. The police report says the girls also had bruises and scratches all over their bodies. They even had a 3-inch diameter chunk of hair missing on the back of their heads. The officer said it looked like it had either been burnt or rubbed off. Elisabeth Crossley, the girl's mother was arrested on scene and the girls were taken into custody by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

Crossley told police the girls caused the bruises themselves, and they were hard to clean-up after, even though Crossley and her mother are both unemployed and home all throughout the day.

A warrant had been issued for Ruth Cassidy's arrest, and she was booked into the Kootenai County Jail this morning. Crossley is currently being held on $100,000 bond. Cassidy is expected to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.
