On 13 Sep 17 Sgt. McGilton came in contact with Amanda and Brian Edgar along with their six year old child while investigating an unrelated complaint in Barlow Township. Sgt. McGilton observed that the child was filthy, clothes were too small and the child had no socks or shoes on. The child had a severe infestation of head lice and hair appeared to be filthy and was matted on the scalp and the child had not eaten that day. The child appeared to be of school age and when asked why the child wasn’t in school, Amanda Edgar advised that the child had not been enrolled yet. Upon learning this, Sgt. McGilton contacted the Truancy officer of the Marietta City Schools and a meeting was set up for the parents and the child to advise Amanda and Brian on the steps necessary to enroll their child. Amanda and Brian Edgar were also instructed to contact the child’s pediatrician to obtain treatment for the head lice. On 15 Sep 17 Sgt. McGilton followed up with the child’s pediatrician’s office and was advised that no calls had been made on behalf of the child for any reason. Sgt. McGilton also learned that no attempts were made to enroll the child in any of the city schools on this date. On 18 Sep 17 Sgt. McGilton located the child in Marietta Township at his or her grandfather’s camper. The child had been dropped off four days prior by Amanda and Brian and had been told they would be back to pick up the child, but they never returned. Sgt. McGilton observed the child was filthy and the conditions of the camper were not suitable for the child and the camper was without proper plumbing. Sgt. McGilton advised that she was removing the child and further made contact with Children’s Services. Children’s Services arrived on scene to transport the child to their office to place the child into an appropriate foster home. Sgt. McGilton has requested a summons be issued to Amanda Edgar, age 29, and Brian Edgar, age 30, 445 Goss Fork Road, Whipple, Ohio for child endangerment. Case ongoing.
