Child services investigating 'Octomom'

LA HABRA, Calif., April 25 (UPI) -- Police officers and child welfare investigators who visited the "Octomom's" Southern California home found no reason for immediate action, officials say.

Sgt. Daniel Barnes of the La Habra Police Department said the visit Tuesday was a joint action by the department and Orange County social services, the Los Angeles Times reported. They were investigating a complaint that Nadya Suleman's 14 children were living in squalid conditions with only one working toilet.

"No crimes were noticed," Barnes said, adding the Department of Family and Children's Services may continue its investigation.

Suleman became internationally famous or notorious in 2009 when she gave birth to octuplets conceived through in vitro fertilization.

The complaint that brought investigators to Suleman's home was filed by her hairstylist, KTLA-TV reported. She said the children were forced to use portable training toilets in their bedrooms and that they appeared malnourished and unclean.
