One of Rolling Stone's sources alleged that one of the kids, a one-year-old, was once found with a loose bullet in their mouth. However, the mother disappeared with her kids after police tried to serve her an emergency protection order to take the kids to a safer home. Miller maintains that they do not know where she went.
