On Friday, police were called to a hospital to investigate a child abuse call after two infants were brought to an Owasso Urgent Care suffering from extreme malnutrition.
A tearful nurse told the officer that one of the children looked like a skeleton and had severe diaper rash, bedsores, feces in her ear.
Even worse, while the infant was being evaluated by medical staff, a maggot crawled out of the infant’s vagina.
The other infant was extremely skinny, had a major diaper rash, bed sores, and a hair was wrapped around her finger so tight it had gotten infected and skin was growing over it.
When officers interviewed the children’s parents, Kevin Fowler and Aislyn Miller, they said they are “new parents” and not used to taking care of infants.
Miller said they were aware of some of the medical issues the infants were suffering, but that they do not have health insurance and cannot afford the medical bills. They also said the children have not been to a doctor since birth.
Both Fowler and Miller were arrested on child abuse charges and are being held in the Tulsa County jail on $50,000 bond.Aislyn Miller, Child Abuse, Crime, Kevin Fowler, maggot, Oklahoma
