PostSubject: Octomum outrage: Police query over son's black eye   April 30th 2009, 10:53 am

Octuplets mother Nadya Suleman was questioned by US police and child welfare officials on Wednesday after her four-year-old autistic son showed up at school with a black eye and bite marks.

Orange County's Child and Family Services and two La Habra police detectives visited Suleman's home but it was not clear if any action would be taken against the mother of 14, said Jeff Czech, Suleman's lawyer.

The 45-minute visit, first reported by RadarOnline.com, was arranged when a teacher noticed Aidan's injuries and reported them to authorities, Czech said.

The lawyer said the boy likely got the black eye from a fall and suggested one of Suleman's two-year-old twins may have caused the bite marks.

"Poor Aidan, he falls a lot," Czech said told The Associated Press. "He jumps at noises and things and bumps furniture and walls."

La Habra police spokeswoman Cindy Knapp confirmed that officers visited Suleman and said child welfare officials requested their assistance.

Orange County Social Services spokeswoman TerryLynn Fischer said her department can't confirm or deny any child welfare investigations because of state confidentiality laws.

Czech said he doubts Suleman will be seriously reprimanded, "but I know CPS takes it very seriously."

Suleman's best option at this point is finding the young culprit and issuing a punishment, he said.

"Nadya says she grounds them, takes their favourite toys away - the typical things that a mother will do," Czech said. "Aiden is a special case."

Police have said they've made several visits to Suleman's home in the last year to respond to complaints about lost, trapped or poorly cared for children.

The single, unemployed mother has gained national attention since giving birth to octuplets on January 26. She already had six other children, ages two to seven.
