BUTLER, Ga. -- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has begun a criminal investigation into whether a 15-year-old Taylor County girl has been held captive in a chicken coop or shed.
The girl was taken away from her home Friday by officers of the Division of Family and Children Services after a complaint was filed with the agency that is part of the Georgia Department of Human Services.
“The girl was in the yard with her mother,” Taylor County Sheriff Jeff Watson told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer on Wednesday. “She was not locked up.”
The girl seemed to be in good condition, but Watson said after the girl spoke with the people from DFCS she was taken away.
