11 kids rescued from illegal compound

Father who took missing Clayton County child found in New Mexico; Kid still missing

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said yesterday that the tragic evidence was found after a search in Amalia, but identification has not yet been confirmed.

Jany Leveille, 35; Hujrah Wahhaj, 38; and Subhannah Wahhaj, 35; were arrested in the case, police said on August 5.

A child's body has now been found at the New Mexico compound where police earlier found 11 starving children.

The body of Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, four, was discovered days after investigators found his mother locked up with two other women and the emaciated children at a heavily guarded compound in the desert.

Georgia officials want him extradited to face a charge of abducting his son, Abdul-ghani, from the state in December when the boy was 3 years old. The remains of a boy were found on the compound on Tuesday, but the authorities have not clarified whether it is Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj.

The second man has been alternatively identified by the sheriff as Lucas Morten and Lucan Morton. Wahhaj is the father of a missing three-year-old Georgia boy.

The boy's mother told authorities that her son suffered from seizures, couldn't walk because of severe medical issues, and required constant attention.

The latest affidavit also provides more detail on what officers found when they raided the compound on Friday.

At a news conference in Taos, Hogrefe described Federal Bureau of Investigation surveillance efforts in recent months that included photographs of the compound and interviews.

Mr Hogrefe said the "breaking point" in seeking a search warrant came when Georgia authorities received a message that may have originated within the compound that children were starving inside. The group told police they were headed to New Mexico to go camping, and continued on their way.

"I had no probable cause to go onto this property".

The children were removed and turned over to state child-welfare workers.

The model on display in the introductory video is the blue version, and the design is consistent with previous leaks and rumors. It is spotted by popular tipster Evan Blass that pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 9 on New Zealand website were made live.

Each of the five adults has since been charged with 11 counts of felony child abuse, according to the local prosecutor, Donald Gallegos.

The cluttered compound had loaded firearms easily within the children's reach, and the group had been there for at least two months, the sheriff said.

Hogrefe's deputies are searching for the child, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Georgia authorities in Clayton County, where officials say the boy was living before his father took him around December 1, 2017.

When deputies took Wahhaj into custody, he had a loaded revolver in his pocket and was wearing a belt with five loaded 30-round AR-15 magazines on it.

What authorities found Friday was what Hogrefe called "the saddest living conditions and poverty" he has seen in 30 years on the job.

The boy's father, Siraj Wahhaj, was arrested Friday along with his sisters Hujrah Wahhaj and Subhannah Wahhaj after authorities raided the compound.

It's one of the more admirable charity initiatives in recent memory and has been lauded by people across the political spectrum. On Monday, James sat down for an interview to promote a new public school that his charitable foundation helped build.

Authorities said at a news conference that they have not positively identified the remains as missing Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj.

His mother told police in Georgia that the boy's father - Siraj Ibn Wahhaj - wanted to perform an exorcism on the child.

On Tuesday, Imam Siraj Wahhaj said his son and two of the women arrested - Hujrah and Subhannah Wahhaj - are his children.

"Many more rounds of ammo were found in the makeshift compound that consists of a small travel trailer buried in the ground covered by plastic with no water, plumbing, or electricity". Two more people, Lucas Morten and Jenny Leveille, are also alleged to have kept the 11 children in squalor with nearly no food or water.

Both the adults and the children looked like "refugees not only with no food or fresh water, but with no shoes, personal hygiene and basically dirty rags for clothing".
