Dollar

John and Linda Dollar are accused of abusing their 5 adopted children, ages 12, 13, 14, 14, and 16, by branding them with a cattle prod, striking their feet with hammers, pulling out their toenails with pliers, and binding them with chains. The Dollars also deprived the children of food to the extent that the twins, aged 14, weighed only 36 and 38 pounds. The abuse was discovered when John Dollar called 911 to report that there was blood gushing from his 16 year old son’s head. There were three other children in the home who were not abused. The Dollars homeschooled their children through a private umbrella school.
