A Houston mother has been charged with endangering a child after investigators found she was homeschooling her daughter in a house full of wild animals — including a tiger, three tiger cubs, a cougar, a fox, a skunk and several monkeys.

An investigation was opened after a California man claimed Trisha Meyer swindled him out of $3,000 — the cost of an exotic Savannah kitten he had purchased from Meyer but that Meyer never shipped to him. Meyer has also been charged with felony theft in relation to the incident.

Here’s how they caught her.

A mother has been charged with capital murder after drowning her two young children in a bathtub, then hiding their bodies underneath a neighbor’s house.

Houston police arrested 31-year-old Sheborah Thomas after she “matter-of-factly” told a neighbor that she had killed her five-year-old daughter, Kahana, and seven-year-old son, Oraylyn, as the Houston Chronicle reported.

Thomas, who just moved in April to the 3000 block of Tierwester Street near Texas Southern University in Third Ward, was throwing away large bags of trash in a nearby field when her neighbor spotted her, the Chron reported. Thomas told him that she needed to move immediately and asked if he would help her pack up. Noticing her kids weren’t around, the man asked Thomas where they were. That’s when Thomas apparently told him she had drowned them in the tub Friday.
