Scott- On August 19, 2019, Detective Jacklyn Shofner received information from the Department of Child Services in reference to alleged child abuse involving two children, age four and age seven. The alleged abuses consisted of physical abuse with no medical attention, confinement and food depravation. Both children were removed from the home by the Department of Child Services and medically evaluated.
