In 2010, a Texas appeals court turned down an attempt by Devonte Hart’s biological aunt to adopt him and three of his siblings. The court ruled against her because she had violated an order that prevented the kids from having any contact with their mother.
The timeline of disturbing allegations against the Harts, the family of eight whose car was driven off a California cliff last month, goes back a decade, and authorities are uncovering more details about the lengths the Hart children went to for help.
Authorities are still trying to piece together what happened when an SUV packed with a family of eight drove off a California cliff last weekend. The bodies of two women and their three adopted children were found in the car, which was discovered Monday. Their three other adopted children are missing and presumed dead.
