Seven Adopted Kids Found Abused And Living At An In-Home Strip Club

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM: What started out as a homicide investigation for Calvin Lynch, whose body was found in the front yard of a Southern California home, has turned into something completely different. Detectives issued a search warrant last month to search the home but what they actually discovered completely shocked them.

Owners of the home Gregory Bernard Lacy and his wife LaQuron McLean Lacy, had turned the bottom floor of their home into a strip club despite the fact they had seven adopted children living in the home. Even more shocking was that all seven of their kids recounted incidents of physical and sexual abuse.

The strip club included a platform, dancing pole and even a private room. The children told CPS workers they had all witnessed the wild strip club parties that occurred often and would last through the night.

The children range in age from 6-11 and said they were beaten with sticks, belts and even a metal cane. They were frequently locked in their rooms without food and threatened with a stun gun. A 7-year-old girl even said she had been molested in front of her siblings.

Both owners of the home, whom the children actually called "mom" and "dad" have been arrested for multiple counts of child abuse and are being held on bail.

They will make their first appearance in court next week while the Calvin Lynch murder case remains a mystery.

This story was filed and written by KHQ's Nichole Mischke.

How can adopted children be better protected from abusive parents?
