Children found at home were ‘tortured for sadistic purposes’

The 10 children, aged between four months and 12 years, were removed from the home in Fairfield on 31 March after their mother Ina Rogers, 30, reported that the oldest child had gone missing.

Police found the child and returned him home, where they found the other children and conditions they described as “unsafe and unsanitary”.

The children claim they had been abused, with allegations of burns, bruising, puncture wounds and injuries consistent with being shot with a pellet gun, reports claim.
