Savannah Lewis, 29, was arrested on Oct. 10, 2019 in Cameron, NC after she starved three of her kids at a home. The children had special needs.
Law enforcement received an anonymous tip about possible drug activity taking place at the home, and when officers arrived, they found three severely malnourished children.
A 15-year-old boy weighed 48 pounds, and his 13-year-old sister weighed less than that. The two teens were so malnourished that they required hospitalization.
A 10-year-old child was also malnourished.
