“Do not occupy order” planned for Norwood rental home

According to this article, when Norwood police officers responded Saturday to a disturbance call on South Madison Avenue, they found 7 children living in deplorable conditions in a rental home. In addition to seeing trash outside, Officer Michael Jackson said, “Clothes everywhere, basically just filth, there was animal feces all over the house.” The Norwood Fire Department was called to shut the water off because of a foot of water in the basement. Norwood building inspector Charles Russ was called to the scene and told Channel 9 a “do not occupy order” is planned for today. Child endangering charges are possible for the parents of the children.
