AZTEC, N.M.- A couple accused of abusing their children learned one of their adult children died this week.
Matthew Crouch, 19, was killed in a car crash, according to his brother Alex.
Matthew was living and working in Kansas.
Matthew’s death comes as law enforcement and the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department investigate abuse allegations being made by some of the younger Crouch siblings.
However, some of the children have come to their parents’ defense.
“My mom and dad are some of the best people you'll meet,” Timothy Crouch told KOB 4.
Alex told KOB 4 that many of his siblings are expected to travel to Aztec to attend their mother’s court appearance on Thursday.
