(Osceola County, Florida: May 2016)Investigators removed six children from a filthy home infested with trash, feces, rotten food and infested with insects. The home is owned by parents Randy and Kysa Donawa. Kysa was formerly employed by the Department of Children and Families as a Child Protective Investigator but since had been fired. DCF said upon hearing of Kysa’s arrest, that she was in training at the time and did not carry a caseload.
The Narcotics Enforcement Team executed a search warrant on the home and also found 26 marijuana plants, 8 grams of marijuana, counterfeit money and a handgun in the home. Randy and Kysa Donawa, were arrested and each was charged with Production of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and 6 counts of Child Neglect. Both have since bonded out of the Osceola County Jail.
The children have been family members, a judge called the home “an immediate danger.”
