    CO - Lisa Williford for child endangerment, Colorado Springs, 2007

    Mother Arrested After Children Wander For Food


    Four children found wandering a neighborhood in search of food led police to a dehydrated and malnourished 15-month-old boy.

    The boy was found in a crib wearing a diaper that had not been changed in at least 12 hours, Colorado Springs Detective Terry Duran said Friday. Lisa Williford, 30, was jailed Wednesday night on suspicion of felony child abuse.

    Williford had left four children, ages 4, 3, 2 and 15 months old in the care of an 8-year-old to go work as a security guard. The children are now in foster care.

    Officers found no food in the house that was littered with garbage and clothes and emitted an odor that could be detected in the yard.

    "I've never seen a house in that bad condition," Duran said.

    What did she do with her paycheck? It certainly wasn't to purchase food for her children!

    She left a 4 year old to watch 4 younger children, and there was no food. IMO it doesn't matter if she was whoring around or working, these children were hungry and endangered. However, I do respect your opinion.

    It was an eight year old she left to watch the others. Doesn't change much though, your point still stands.

    baker I don't at all think whatt she did was right. I just find it interseting that we are holding her to a different standard than we hold others.

    Those poor hungry kids. I know an eight year old can keep a couple smaller ones entertained awhile playing, but can no way take care of children for hours home all alone. The woman would have done better by her kids to have gone whoring at night while they were in bed asleep. At least she would have made more money and ability to purchase food and a sitter. I wish we could hear the whole story of some of these lately like the circumstance, ability to get help, etc.

    The eight year old was also her child, I do believe. Nothing in the article suggested otherwise.

    ETA: See the quote here, there were five children total.

    I am really sick to my stomach now. That poor 8yo shouldering so much responsibility, what a brave little guy to go get help. And the baby, the way he was left to die in the crib! I hope he lives.

    I have to wonder if the 8yo attended school - they would have noticed the lice?

    She is either mentally handicapped or on drugs or criminally negligent.

    I am just sick to my stomach about those children being left like that.

    I hope they are lucky enough to find better parents.

    How could she be out on bail? That is the sick! She doesn't deserve freedom, no matter what the cause of this.

    I was wondering why she is out too! There should be many, many charges against her. Good lord. Including negligent attempted homicide. (If there is such a charge available). And she doesn't feed her kids but can afford bail?

    And she totally doesn't care for or about them but sure cared about herself and got herself taken care of quick.

    IF that is her myspace account she mentions getting 9 tattoos. That cost money right there that could go for food and care for the kids.

    And I noticed she said she was a single mom, but on another part of the myspace it asks about kids and her answer was she didn't want any!

    These children should never, ever ,see her again. I hope the poor little baby makes it and somehow will be healthy.
