Monaca Mother Speaks Out On Filth Allegations

MONACA (KDKA) – Police have charged a couple from Monaca after three children were found living in filth at their home.

Beaver County Children and Youth Services asked police to go to the home of 37-year-old Kimberly Dawn Flynn and 38-year-old Gilberto Rodriguez on Washington Avenue.

Monaca police say when they entered the house, they found 2-year-old twins naked from the waist down and a 15-month-old in a crib covered with human waste.

The mother of the children says she’s a good parent and will do whatever it takes to get her children back.

“My kids are my life,” Flynn told KDKA-TV in an exclusive interview. “I am nothing without them.”

Police say they found rotten food, flies and the odor of human waste.

“Garbage, dirty clothes, soiled diapers, just real bad living conditions the kids were staying in,” Monaca Police Chief William Petures said.

“That’s untrue – I changed that baby all the time,” Flynn said. “I even started potty training her already because she wants that dirty diaper – when she goes – off of her.”

Flynn and Rodriguez were charged with endangering the welfare of children and reckless endangerment. Both were released on bond.

“My kids are actually well taken care of,” Flynn said. “They’re fed, they’re clothed. I take them to the doctor’s when they need to.”

Meanwhile, Paul Manos, the landlord, said he’s taking legal steps to evict the couple. The landlord said he did try to help Flynn.

Flynn says she has a number of health issues she’s dealing with. She was supposed to appear in court with Rodriguez for a preliminary hearing, but it was continued.

    agreeed RPD they need steralized!! ridiculous how many of these cases there have been.

  9. Kris says:

    As I said in the case this past week with a child living in deplorable conditions, I’ll say it again – some people should not be permitted to reproduce – this is the outcome. They need to lose total custody of these kids and whatever welfare benefits they were receiving for them. If it’s their decision to continue to live in filth, so be it – just as long as they are never permitted to have children living with them again. A mother’s first instinct is to protect her children at any cost, and this pathetic human being let her children down!

    Mr. Paul Mandas is Mr. Monaca and a GREAT landlord!! He loves section eight housing from the government. GOD BLESS Mr. Mandas!! God Bless America!!

  11. wade says:

    o know both of these people and have known mr. rodriguez for over 5 years. this is all false. and it all started with a phone call from an angry woman. and now even mr. rodriguez has fled the state to get away from the harrassment

  12. db says:

    Why did mr. rodgiguez leave. Not a us citizen. Take these kids away from them. Give them to someone who will love them & teach them they dont have to live like that.
