Omaha (KPTM) - Early Wednesday Morning police found a 12 year old girl near Regency Lodge. They said she was muddy, crying, and distraught.
The girl told police her parents had given her mushrooms (psilocybin) for religious purposes. She then left her house and continued her "religious experience" by laying in a creek and walking through the mud.
Christopher and Cynthia Ewerdt have been booked for Felony Child Abuse and Manufacturing a Controlled Substance.
Police said they did find evidence of a "mushroom grow operation" at the parent's home. Public Information Officer Lieutenant Darci Tierney said police believe this wasn't the first time the parents gave their kid mushrooms.
The Ewerdt's have lived at Windsor Woods for the last 8 years where they were building managers.
Neighbors that Fox 42 News spoke with said they were shocked to hear the news. They never expected the Ewerdt's to abuse their children. They said the apartments and neighborhood are quiet.
