Duggar Compound Raided By Federal Agents: What Really Happened? [New Details]

by at .  Updated at .

It's been an interesting week for reality TV's most famous fundamentalists.

Following the unexpected rumors online that maligned first-born Josh Duggar's home had been raided by the FBI, new details poured in that painted a slightly different picture.

Fans soon learned that Josh's home had not been raided, but that his parents' house, the so-called Duggar compound in Arkansas, had been stormed by Homeland Security.

It seemed too bizarre to be true, but it looks like it is, at least in part.

A number of reputable media outlets are covering the story, the feds have commented on it, and it sure looks as though the Duggars really are under some sort of investigation.

According to new details published by celebrity news sites TMZ and The Ashley's Reality Roundup, the family may very well be in some legal hot water - Josh in particular.

Here's what we know so far - and what surprises we've uncovered.

The Duggars are always under scrutiny, and many rumors about them on the Internet are baseless. But in this, it's looking like they might be in some serious legal trouble. It seems the famous family is under investigation by the federal government.

2. Josh Again?

At first, reports over the weekend claimed that Josh Duggar - the first of Jim Bob and Michelle's 19 children, and the father of five (soon to be six) himself - saw his home and business raided by the FBI.

3. The Black Sheep

The Black Sheep
Purported causes for the investigation ranged from human trafficking to tax fraud. Keep in mind that neither of those theories were confirmed, but this is Josh Duggar we're talking about. His checkered past is well documented and still radioactive among fans. As such, a lot of people weren'y surprised by the news.

4. It Never Ends

It Never Ends
Josh has been making life hell for his family and sparking outrage among fans for years. And we're not just talking about the fact that he molested four of his sisters while still in his teens (although that would certainly be enough to tarnish his reputation for life).

5. Problem Child

Problem Child
It's almost been overlooked by the press, but for the past four years, at least, Josh's life has been an almost endless parade of lawsuits. He's currently being sued for real estate fraud.

6. Yeah, You Can't Do That

Yeah, You Can't Do That
For example, an Arkansas man claims that Josh sold him property that actually belonged to a third party who was unaware of the deal. Needless to say, that's highly illegal.
