According to Breitbart, officers from the Boston Fire Department (BFD) and the Boston Police Department (BPD) responded to a distress call at the Mary Ellen McCormack Housing complex on the morning of June 17. While the officers were initially responding to a medical emergency – a man at the unit who had gone into cardiac arrest – they found something more at the apartment unit.
First responders found the body of a dead man, allegedly the one requiring medical attention, inside the apartment with "extremely unsanitary" conditions. Approximately six adult males dressed in women's garb were also in the apartment. Moreover, four children aged between five and 10 years old were reportedly found hidden in a back bedroom.
The children were reportedly hidden there by an adult male. The other companions, meanwhile, were uncooperative and provided no helpful information. They even denied that children were present in the apartment. (Related: Boston Children's Hospital accused of 'routinely kidnapping' children for profit.)
Following the incident, the BPD officers filed a 51A report with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF). The 51A report, which is required in cases where there are suspicions of child abuse or neglect, highlighted the deplorable conditions inside the home.
A spokesman for the department said their initial investigation did not find anything suspicious regarding the dead body, and that their probe in the matter is ongoing. Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey confirmed that the four children are currently under the care and supervision of the DCF.
Two city officials took to social media to demand greater accountability from the Boston Housing Authority (BHA). The BHA runs the Mary Ellen McCormack Housing complex where the children were rescued.
"This horrific and inhuman incident demands accountability," wrote Boston City Council President Ed Flynn. "It also underscores the need for a complete review of [BHA] inspections and eviction practices, security efforts in developments and protocols to ensure children are safe in every BHA apartment."
"The safety of children in our [BHA] is a responsibility I take as seriously as the safety of my own children," tweeted Boston City Councilor Erin Murphy. "I look forward to the hearing order we filed regarding safety protocols and procedures in BHA Housing to ensure the safety and well-being of our truly most vulnerable."
According to Murphy, authorities have found "a lot of drug paraphernalia and sex toys all around" the apartment. She added that one of the BPD officers "heard a cry for help," which led to the discovery and rescue of the four children.
The BHA issued a statement to Fox affiliate station WFXT clarifying its stance to and response toward the incident.
"BHA received no complaints about activity in this unit prior to the incident, but we care deeply about the safety of all our residents and are working actively with the agencies involved to take all appropriate follow-up action," the statement said.
"BHA has a strong partnership with the BPD and communicates with them often. The only call BHA received this year about this unit was for a routine maintenance issue in May, which was responded to appropriately at that time."
