The investigation into the children rescued from a Feasterville home is now turning toward the future of the victims.

On Tuesday, officials held a hearing to figure out where the children should go now that they've been saved.

Among those with an interest in the closed hearing were a group of about a dozen people from Lancaster County.

At least some of them closely related to two of the suspects, parents Daniel and Savilla Stoltzfus, and their children.


The meeting apparently dealt with the welfare and future living arraignments for some of those children.

It's alleged the Stoltzfus' about 4 years ago "gifted" their now 18 year old daughter to the third suspect in this case, 51-year-old Lee Kaplan.

In court documents, Kaplan allegedly told police he had fathered two children by the teen. Nine other Stoltzfus daughters were found in Kaplan's house last week.



The Stoltzfus' had been raised in the Amish faith, but had a falling out with Amish leaders some years ago.

The Stoltzfus parents remain in jail charged with child endangerment. Kaplan also behind bars is charged with Stautory Sexual Assault and the corruption of minors.
