Jessica Graber-Rosenberger Raised Her Children At The Roach Motel - Even Her Hair Didn’t Scare The Bugs Away

Manatee, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Jessica Graber-Rosenberger, a 21-year-old Manatee woman was jailed after she allegedly allowed her children to live in conditions so horrible they developed skin infections.

According to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, Rosenberger's three children were removed from her home after deputies found the residence so infested with roaches that they were even inside the refrigerator.

Investigators say Rosenberger's children, a 3-year-old boy, 1-year-old girl and 8-month-old boy, were found with bug bites on their arms, legs, necks, and inside their ears.

They also had an array of filth-driven illnesses including impetigo and lice. The infant had cradle cap and large open wounds on his head. His head was flat in the back indicating that he laid down for days and is unable to bear weight on his legs or sit alone due to malnourishment and neglect.

The children's father stated that he was given bottles and milk for the infant that had roaches in them.

Rosenberger was booked into the Manatee County Jail and charged with three counts of child neglect without great harm. She is being held without bond.
