Methelusfils claimed the kids had an Alexis device to contact her or the police, but when investigators looked, they found the device on the floor of the kid’s bedroom with the power cord plugged into the kitchen. According to the report, there were no car seats for her kids either.

The children have been the subject of an open case file with child welfare investigators, as evidenced by the fact that they have previously been left home alone.
