Duggar Family 911 Call: Officials Reference New Investigation Involving Child
The call was placed eight days after Josh Duggar publicly admitted to molesting five underage girls 12 years ago.
The Arkansas Department of Human Services recently visited the Duggar family residence in furtherance of an investigation involving a child inside the home, according to a newly surfaced 911 call.
The audio, obtained by InTouch and broadcast Thursday by NBC's Today, contains a conversation dated May 27 between a DHS official and 911 dispatch, in which the caller asks for police assistance because the Duggar family is refusing to let him inside. The call was placed eight days after Josh Duggar publicly admitted to molesting five underage girls 12 years ago.
"Address is Duggar family home," the caller says. "We're Washington County DHS Office and we're out here to, um, we have an investigation. I guess they're not being cooperative. And we have to see the child to make sure the child is alright. So we just need police assistance or escort."
The call was then transferred, so it's unclear what happened next.
A representative for DHS told NBC News, it "can neither confirm nor deny whether we have investigated a specific family."
