A Joshua Tree couple caring for their developmentally challenged adult sons were arrested Tuesday, Sept. 18, after San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies discovered the sons living in a home desecrated with human and rat feces; and with exposed wiring and holes in the walls.

The adult children, men ages 24 and 25, have been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and autism. The parents are their caregivers, a sheriff’s news release said.

Edward Zeppenfeldt, 55, and Melinda Zeppenfeldt, 48, were booked on suspicion of abuse of a dependent adult into West Valley Detention Center, where bail was set at $50,000.

Cue the "not that we approve of their actions the parents had it so tough raising autistics" sympathy comments

Those parents should be locked up for life.
