A woman with a history of drug abuse and prostitution has had her seventh child taken away from her after the child tested positive for cocaine.

When the baby was taken into care in March, Daiquiri Miller, 34, told health services she ‘wondered what took you so long’, a court affidavit shows.

The woman, from Tulsa, Oklahoma, told police she had used cocaine, marijuana and alcohol every day during her latest pregnancy.

When the baby was born on March 31, he tested positive for cocaine, the Tulsa World reported.

Other children she gave birth to in 2000, 2009 and 2010 also tested positive for cocaine or marijuana after they were born.

During an interview with a health services investigator after the 2009 birth, Miller asked: ‘So are you taking him, or what?’

She also had children taken on three other occasions after the Department of Human services feared they had been abused, police said.

 

In 1997, her first child was taken at three months old after suffering a suspicious broken leg, Cpl. Greg Smith said.

In 1999, another child was taken out of fears of neglect as authorities were aware of her drug use, he added.

And in 2006, police said they found Miller smoking cocaine with a man next to her four-month-old daughter in a car.

Police believe that four to six men fathered the children.

 

Miller has been charged with one count of child neglect in the three most recent births. Yet she has not been charged in the older cases because of the state’s statute of limitations, the World reported.

She also faces two prostitution complaints and is accused of soliciting sex from an undercover police officer while heavily pregnant in February, according to records.

She has been arrested in Tulsa five other times since 2006 on prostitution complaints.

She is in the Tulsa Jail with bail set at $250,500. If convicted of child abuse, she could serve a year to life in prison or a $500 – $5,000 fine.

Forced to perform sex acts for food and beaten with a paddle called ‘Mr Awesome’: Horrific life of four children ‘tortured by white adoptive parents’ is revealed

Aubrey and Laura ThomasAubrey and Laura Thomas

Accused: Laura Thomas, 47, left, and Aubrey Thomas, 58, right has been accused of violently beating and sexually abusing their four adopted children.

A couple have been arrested for violently beating their four adopted children and forcing them to perform sex acts in a disturbing catalogue of abuse which police say amounts to torture.

Aubrey Thomas, 58, and his wife Laura, 47, have been accused of forcing the children to throw up and eat their own vomit, beating them with a large paddle called ‘Mr Awesome’ and then making them soak in a bath of ice to reduce swelling from the abuse.

Investigators described the family’s Oklahoma home, where the two girls and two boys now aged between 13 and 15 lived, as a ‘house of horrors’.

The children said they were sexually abused, claiming they were forced to eat gum off Aubrey Thomas’ penis and made to perform oral sex on their adoptive siblings in exchange for food.

The Thomas’ also allegedly forced them to put urine soaked underwear in their mouths if they wet the bed and forced them to eat horse manure for not cleaning a horse pen, reports News9.com.

The couple is facing a series of child abuse charges.

The couple, who lived in Rogers County, became foster parents in 2001 and took in six children.

In 2003, the Oklahoma Department of Human Services removed two of the children from their home after finding evidence of abuse, Osage County Undersheriff Lou Ann Brown told Tulsa World.

But the couple were able to keep the other four children and moved to Osage County west of Sperry in 2006.

In October, the Osage County Sheriff’s Office was called in to investigate after one of the girls, who had been put into a psychiatric facility, revealed the allegations to a counselor, reports the Tulsa World.

Investigators say the home schooled children, who were all found to be malnourished, were coached not to say anything about the alleged abuse.

Osage County sheriff’s investigator Justin Kling’s reports says the girls, particularly, were singled out for ‘heinous abuse’, reports the Tulsa World.

Kling was able to track down a biological daughter of the Thomas’ who had moved away in 2008. She echoed the stories of abuse.

‘It’s probably one of the worst cases that I know of that’s happened around here in a long time,’ Brown told News9.com.

‘To treat a child like that is beyond my imagination.’

The four children are now in protective custody.

The DHS released a statement to News9.com saying: ‘We are rigorously reviewing this case to find any mistakes made by our agency or others during the years of involvement with this family.

‘This is absolutely intolerable. It is our mission to protect children and we will take whatever corrective action is needed to ensure this does not happen in the future.’
