Father of Disabled Twin Daughters Arrested After They Are Found Neglected, Filthy, and Malnourished

An elderly Texas man has been arrested on charges he neglected his disabled twin daughters, one of whom was found filthy and wandering in the cold.

David Hubert Decker, 78, was charged with exploitation of a disabled individual, according to the Wichita Falls Times Record News.

He was released Friday from jail after posting $10,000 bail.

One of Decker’s daughters was spotted wandering through Burkburnett about 11 a.m. Jan. 31, a day when temperatures dropped into the low 30s.

The woman had matted hair, a pungent odor and a “layer of crust all over her body,” the newspaper said, citing an arrest warrant affidavit. She was also thin and had very long fingernails and toenails.
