Florida couple lose kids after home is found in ‘deplorable condition’

Before Palm Beach Sheriff’s deputies entered the home of Travis and Robin Royall on Friday, they could smell the putrid odor of urine emanating from the residence. What they found inside made the Florida deputies stomach turn – thousands of cockroaches, piles of human feces and trash stacked wall-to-wall. But what horrified them the most were the two young children sleeping in a spider- and roach-infested room with no air conditioning or running water and a gaping hole in the roof overhead. The Royalls had already lost custody of the children once in 2012 because of the home’s deplorable condition. Over the weekend, when the officers found a urine-soaked floor and a toilet that looked as if it hadn’t been flushed in weeks, the couple lost their children again.
