According to Pflugerville police, officers were called to Cannon's apartment on August 1st for a welfare check when they were reportedly greeted at the door by a 10-year-old boy. The child stated that his mother had been gone all night, leaving himself, his 13-year-old brother, his 4-year-old sister, and his 2-year-old sister at home alone.
When officers entered the residence, they found the little girl alone in a filthy room that smelled of urine and feces. Police stated that she had a pink satin-like rope wrapped around her body and tied to her playpen's frame.
