(Newser) – Social workers visited Nadya Suleman's home last night after an official complaint—by the Octomom's own hairstylist—that her 14 children are living in "general neglect." TMZ has the pictures that triggered the investigation, and while some of the allegations are less than hard-hitting (the kids are barefoot outside?! Horrors!), others are admittedly gross (children pooping in an outdoor training potty because only one indoor toilet works) and/or disturbing (Suleman allegedly locked the kids in a bedroom, blocking the door with a chair). Police officers and social service workers did not find the kids to be in danger during last night's visit, KTLA reports, but the inquiry will continue.
