Boy adopted by Timothy and Karen Sue Tolin
A 19-year-old boy, one of 13 children adopted by Timothy and Karen Sue Tolin, was found locked in a caged bed covered in urine and feces.
Court records indicate that the Department of Human Services has a history of involvement with the Tolin family.
In 2010, the Huron County Intermediate School District and Ubly Community Schools petitioned Huron County Circuit Court Family Division regarding a charge the Tolins educationally abused and neglected seven minor children. A hearing was canceled after the Home School Legal Defense Association got involved.
One of the children adopted by the Tolins was placed with Tom and Debra Schmitz.
Karen Sue Tolin on her now defunct website admits to being a long time sufferer of Anxiety and Depression.
