...her arms are deteriorating from heroin
(Warning: the following photos below are somewhat graphic)

6-year-old boys caught having sex at camp
Two 6-year-old boys were caught performing oral and anal sex at a day camp in Leesburg.
The mother of one of the boys told WESH 2 News that her 6-year old son came home describing oral and anal sex acts he took part in at the city-run summer camp. "I was shocked, upset, concerned and worried as to where my son had learned this from," she said.
The incident occured under a piece of playground equipment, just large enough for the kids to get underneath and conceal what they were doing from counselors. Another camper noticed what was going on.
Once counselors got wind of what was going on, Evans said they jumped into action. "We immediately contacted law enforcement, we brought in the Department of Children and Families and the Children's Advocacy Center to see if we'd determine where this inappropriate contact originated," he said.
According to both 6-year-old boys, an 8-year-old boy at camp taught them what to do and this wasn't their first time. "They believe that it happened between eight and 10 times over the course of three weeks," the mother said. Article here.
