Orange County authorities said Wednesday that no criminal investigation is underway after a visit to the La Habra home of “Octomom” Nadya Suleman after a complaint about her children's living conditions.

The La Habra Police Department and investigators from the Orange County Social Services Agency visited the home Tuesday after a complaint of “general neglect” regarding conditions at Suleman’s home, said Sgt. Daniel Barnes.

The person who filed the complaint was not identified.

KTLA-TV Channel 5 reported the person who filed the complaint said there was only one functioning toilet in the home and that the children had to use portable toilets. The person also claimed the children appeared unclean.

Barnes said officers conducted preliminary interviews at the home and “no crimes were noticed.” He said no criminal investigation was underway, although there could be further examination from social workers.

Suleman was dubbed “Octomom” after she gave birth to octuplets in 2009.
