When an investigator asked Taylor if the kids came in for supper on July 3, he said no. The family had “kind of roughed it this month” and “really didn't cook dinner” because most of their food was gone, he said, according to the affidavit.
I'm bringing this portion of prior post forward. With 2 adults and however many kids they claimed in their household, their SNAP [food stamps/EBT] would be at least 400-600 dollars. To me, it seems that they may have been selling their SNAP to buy drugs or drug making products. I have to wonder, if it were any other family on the rez, not connected to leadership, would they have been investigated sooner. Also, there were places they could have gone to get food for the children, if they had legitimately used up the SNAP. IMHO
