Authorities said the home where a 13-year-old girl Michigan girl whose stillborn son was found in a friend's attic and the 16-year-old relative who may have impregnated her lived in is unfit for human habitation.
Huron County sheriff's deputies and the Thumb Animal Shelter on Thursday afternoon removed 11 malnourished dogs from the home in Huron Township, near Port Hope.
Authorities said the home had no running water and lacked electricity.
Sheriff Kelly Hanson said the six people at the home at first refused to leave, but later accepted temporary shelter from members of their church.
With the amount of animals living in there, without the heat, without water, it is bad, said Hanson. I certainly dont say that to offend the people living in the house, I really dont, its just that nobody should be living in that house.
The sheriff's department took all of the animals to the shelter. Some were in such bad shape they had to be put down.
Deputies were called to the home last summer after complaints about the dogs and filthy conditions.
Hospital staff on Saturday determined the girl had been pregnant. The body later was found stashed in an attic of a Port Hope home where the girl had been staying.
The girl had kept her pregnancy a secret. The boy has been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
It was not immediately clear if the boy knew the girl was pregnant, and he was not present at the time she gave birth, according to Hanson.
