LaQuron Lacy: Child Abuse, Molestation in House That Had Strip Club Inside -- Cops
Southern California's LaQuron and Gregory Lacy are some bad parents, authorities allege. Both have been accused of horrific child abuse aimed at adopted kids who lived in a virtual strip club.
Riverside County authorities said this month that when cops raided their Perris home over summer following a homicide they found a makeshift neighborhood gentlemen's club, stripper pole included, called "Exotic Zone."
That and ecstasy.
Police went to the house in the 3000 block of Kalei Court on July 22 at 3 a.m. to conduct a homicide investigation.
The gunshot murder, in the front yard, doesn't appear to be connected to the abuse case, according to the Riverside Press-Enterprise: The victim was an acquaintance of one of the residents.

The most serious allegations, according to prosecutor's documents that were sent to the Weekly, include these:
Gregory Lacy, 60, was charged with oral copulation and sexual penetration of a child under 10 and cruel and "inhuman" punishment on a child. LaQuron, 43, got the latter charge, cruel and inhuman punishment, times two -- for allegedly beating two of her children.
The couple have seven adopted kids, all under the age of 11, who cops say were beat by their mom and dad.
Mom used "fists, belts, hangers and metal objects," according to a document supporting an arrest warrant.
Dad used "belts and a metal cane" that caused "traumatic injuries and scarring," a sheriff's deputy stated. That document further stated that the father allegedly orally copulated a 7-year-old girl on a bathroom floor, an event allegedly witnessed by some of the other kids.
Following their arrest, the two have not yet entered pleas, a Riverside County D.A.'s official told us.
Mom is due in court Oct. 22; he's scheduled to appear Oct. 26.
