Women and Children Removed From Polygamist Compound

Nearly 200 women and children are removed from a secret compound in West Texas built by polygamist leader Warren Jeffs.

Child Protective Services removed dozens of girls from the compound yesterday.  And by Saturday afternoon, 137 children and 46 women were being housed and interviewed at community centers in El Dorado.

Texas Child Welfare officials say the investigation began when a 16 year old living there complained of physical abuse.

State troopers used a search warrant to look for evidence of a marriage between the girl and a 50 year old man.  The search warrant indicates the girl had a baby when she was 15.
