John Dollar and wife Linda are being sought on child abuse charges for allegedly torturing seven children who lived with them. The couple are said to
have, pulled out the childrens toe nails with pliers, delivering electric shocks and striking them with a hammer.
John Dollar, 58, and wife Linda, 51, who live about 70 miles north of Tampa, failed to appear at a scheduled Department of Children & Families
hearing Monday. They are wanted on felony charges of aggravated child abuse.
At least three children were severely malnourished, including twin 14-year-old brothers who weighed just 36 and 38 pounds each — about 80 pounds
below the normal weights for their age, police said.
The seven children were removed from the home last month after one of them called an ambulance for a 16-year-old boy who weighed less than 60 pounds
and had suspicious injuries on his head and neck. The doctors alerted authorities.

I don't understand what these people are thinking, it's bad enought that they are in a state of mind to hurt these children, but to also think that
they'll get away with it ?
I pray for the recovery of the kids.
