That was when their father was freed from prison and he moved the girls down from the mountain town of Pioche to Las Vegas. However, it wasn’t a case of happy families once they got there. Sierra told Fox 5 how he would leave them to their own devices, to the extent that they had to learn to cook and clean for themselves at a young age. She said, “While he was doing his thing we were left to kind of take care of ourselves, and so we did.”

If that wasn’t bad enough their father also started leaving the triplets alone for long periods of time. “For like weeks, months at a time,” Haley explained to the Fox 5 cameras. And then at about the age of 14 or 15 the sisters were left alone overnight and something truly terrifying happened at five in the morning.

Their house was shot at by persons unknown while the triplets were inside. “There were three bullets, three of us… It was just like ‘Hmmm,’” Haley recalled. Clearly it was time to leave their father’s tender care. This time they were taken in by their other set of grandparents elsewhere in the city, but even that solution proved far from ideal.
