The stories making noise this A.M.:

Controversial Nadya Suleman, who earned her Octomom nickname after giving birth to eight children in one big swoop in 2009, is the subject of a chidren’s services investigation in Orange County, Calif. Suleman, 36, is suspected of allowing her 14 children to live in squalor. Suleman’s hairstylist apparently dropped a dime on her yesterday after a visit to her home. Among the allegations: The children appear malnourished and dirty; only one toilet is working; some of the children use training toilets in their bedrooms and the backyard; the house is filthy; and Suleman allegedly locks them all in one room to make a phone call. Suleman has had no visible source of income and relies on public assistance.

— Residents at the Forest Condominium Complex off Gun Club Road in unincorporated West Palm Beach are worrying their complex is being attacked by a firebug. A third fire at the complex in five days destroyed a four-apartment building at 5352 Bosque Lane about 2 a.m. this morning.

Another suspicious blaze was set in the same building shortly before midnight on Monday, and a tenant escaped serious injuries by jumping out a second-floor window. A car caught on fire at the complex Saturday. Authorities are investigating. (Click here for more from WPTV-Channel 5

And finally, Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Erika Huerta, a star of the second season of the TLC reality show Police Women of Broward County, has left BSO for a lower-profile gig with the Coconut Creek police department. The cast’s comely Latina, who patrolled the mean streets of Pompano Beach on the show, didn’t comment on the reasons for her departure. Show producers, meanwhile, said they have no plans for a third season. (Click here for more from the Sun-Sentinel)
