DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) -- Ohio authorities will not file charges against YouTuber Myka Stauffer and her husband James after they gave their adopted son, Huxley, who has autism, to a “new mommy.”
The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office confirmed an investigation, saying: “Our primary concern is for the well-being of this child, as well as the other children in the household. Our investigation is ongoing, and will include contact with all children to ensure their safety.”
Buzzfeed reports that the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office said Monday it closed its case against the couple.
Buzzfeed reports that in a redacted report as part of the investigation that authorities met with Huxley and his new parents on June 9.
The little boy “seemed very active and showed no signs of any abuse,” according to one deputy. Deputy Susanna Leonard reported the little boy was able to say the words “momma,” “go” and “open.” His “prospective adoptive mother” communicated with him through sign language, the report states.
Leonard also determined that the adoption process involving Huxley was being conducted legally, Buzzfeed reports.
When initially announcing the decision to place Huxley in a new home, the couple said Huxley had “a lot more special needs that we weren’t aware of and that we were not told.”
