A LaPorte family is under investigation by Child Protective Services after police there responded to a report of a naked baby on the roof of a home in the 300 block of East Lincolnway around 6:30 Tuesday evening. The child’s father reportedly told LaPorte Police officers that his two-year-old daughter had been on the roof after her siblings opened a second-story window. He was watching all six of his children while his wife was at work, according to the police report. Officers reportedly found unsanitary living conditions and structure hazards inside the home. City Code Enforcement was also notified.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
