eck, as far as that goes every single one of us almost probably have a child living in our own neighborhood that is currently being victimized by their own family member.
In our county the last numbers I read were 1 child in 10.
We also have
This means that at least one out of every 280 people residing here are convicted sexual predators the second highest per capita number in the entire state.

I read about this earlier today and wondered abouy something. Obviously its terrible and just weird as hell (the article I read called them "cult" but I don't know why?) , but it said they were about 4 geberations of incest yet there were severe abnormalities in the children. I don't know much about it but I thought it took a looong tine of inbreeding to cause problems. Like I said I don't know much about it but from what I've read ("blue bloods" and royalty marrying in family) I thought it took a lobg time. Maybe its because they were such close relations.

The rate that hybrid vigor degenerates in cases of multigenerational incest is entirely dependent on the fitness of the original genepool. I have bad eyes, and my mother has weak bones; if my sister and I started an incestuous colony, poor bone structure and eyesight would appear very quickly. The fact that these people may be descended from penal colonists, when criminals have very high rates of mental disorders and infirmities, is telling. If they are not descended from penal colonists, they likely left society due to paranoia, etc, also indicative of mental infirmity. (I assume they aren't aborigines. Aborigines are far more civilized and used to living in the bush.)
They found 40 adults and children living in two filthy caravans, two sheds and tents on an unsewered block with no running water.
Dirt caked the surfaces of stoves and cooking facilities, rotten vegetables lay in a refrigerator and a kangaroo was sleeping on one of the children's beds.
Exposed electric wires, bags of rubbish and chainsaws lay about.
There were no toilets, showers or baths.
The children were unwashed and wore dirty clothes.
They were shy and made little eye contact.
Few were capable of intelligible speech; almost all had fungal infections in their feet.
Some had oddly-formed features, which scientific tests would later reveal was a result of "homozygosity" or identical gene patterns of both of the children's parents.

This reminded me about the movie "Wrong Turn " sure we think nothing like in that movie can happen nowadays..
Australia has a large remote areas which explains why this "Family" haven´t been exposed before..
