    YouTuber Ruby Franke arrested after police found a malourished child with open wounds and duct tape on their extremities

    Ruby Franke, the mother behind the defunct family YouTube channel 8 Passengers, was arrested on two counts of aggravated child abuse Wednesday after police found a malnourished child with open wounds and duct tape on their extremities.

    Franke was arrested alongside her business partner and collaborator, Jodi Hildebrandt, who is the founder of the controversial life counseling organization ConneXions. The two women create advice videos that critics say promote a harsh style of parenting.

    Franke has come under fire in the past for her now-deleted parenting vlogs. Viewers have accused Franke and her husband, Kevin, of being abusive for years.

    Ruby Franke, whose now defunct channel "8 Passengers" followed her family, was arrested Wednesday night in the southern Utah city of Ivins. She was taken into custody at the home of Jodi Hildebrandt, who owns a counseling business that she says teaches people to improve their lives by being honest, responsible and humble.

    Franke has recently appeared in YouTube videos with Hildebrandt that were posted online by Hildebrandt's counseling business, ConneXions Classroom.

    Franke's 12-year-old son climbed out of a window in Hildebrandt's residence in Ivins and ran to a neighbor's house Wednesday morning and asked for food and water, according to an affidavit filed by an officer with the Santa Clara-Ivins Public Safety Department.

    The neighbor saw duct tape on the boy's ankles and wrists and called law enforcement, the affidavit said. The boy was taken to a hospital, where he was put on a medical hold "due to his deep lacerations from being tied up with rope and from his malnourishment," arrest records state.

    Franke's 10-year-old daughter was later found malnourished in Hildebrandt's house and was also taken to the hospital, officers said. Two other of Franke's children were in the custody of child protection services, the affidavit said.

    Court documents reference a YouTube video posted to Hildebrandt's channel just two days before the arrest as playing a part in both women's arrests, CBS affiliate KUTV reported.

    "Ruby Franke was seen on a YouTube video filmed in Jodi Hildebrandt's downstairs, which was posted two days ago," according to the Aug. 30 affidavit.

    The arresting officer reported the video was evidence the women were "present in the home and having knowledge of the abuse, malnourishment, and neglect," KUTV reported.

    Having knowledge of the abuse? So who was the one that actually abused them? Where was the dad.

    Side note: I don't know any of these youtuber people that are "popular" and I just don't get it.

    I've heard of these fuckers before. Family vloggers need to be investigated and the children monitored. They use and abuse the kids for clicks and views and there's zero regulation happening. It's abuse no matter how you cut it because these kids are too young to consent to being uploaded to a public platform where their most private moments are on display.

    I hope these kids turn out ok. If the show was called "8 passangers" is it safe to assume at least 6 kids were involved?

    Hopefully these kids will be much happier without a camera shoved in their face.

    What is wrong with people? There are so many couples/persons out there who would love to have a child and then you have a breeder like this one capitalizing on the lives of her children. I just can't.

    I had never heard of this bitch until after this story broke and now I?ve seen clips from her YouTube or whatever and she was blatantly abusing these kids right in front of her viewers. Talking about using food as punishment and making her preschooler pack her own lunch and wake her own self up for school. What a nut.
