Strange news out of Arkansas today, as an anonymous source claims that Counting On reality star/pariah Josh Duggar's home was raided by the FBI on Saturday night.
The report originated on Facebook and was later reported on the Patheos website.
And what was the alleged cause of this visit from federal agents in Arkansas?
Well, that's not entirely clear at the moment, but not surprisingly, there's been a good deal of conjecture on social media, most of it related to Josh's controversial past.
Here's what we know about the situation thus far:
An insider claims that Josh Duggar's home in Arkansas was raided by the FBI on Saturday, November 17. Details are scarce at the moment, but if the rumors are true, this would be quite an embarrassing situation for his famous family.
A Checkered Past
If you're reading this post, you're familiar with the Duggars' oldest child and the controversy surrounding him. Josh, of course, has been at involved in numerous scandals in the past, at times narrowly avoiding prosecution.
While he was still in his teens, Josh molested five young girls, four of whom were his sisters. Even more disturbing to fans was the fact that these crimes remained under wraps for more than a decade as the family decided to deal with this "in house."
A Family Affair
Insiders say Josh received a bizarre punishment of sorts from church elders, but his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, helped to hide his crimes from the authorities.
Josh was forced to shave his head, and he was briefly shunned by his community, but he avoided jail time, and his sex crimes remained hidden from the public until In Touch Weekly published an exposé in 2015.
It Never Ends
In the years since, Josh has been involved in several other sex scandals, including revelations that he used the website Ashley Madison and attempted to cheat on his wife, Anna Duggar. (There are accusations that he did cheat with at least one porn star, but he has denied this and the claims have not been confirmed independently.)
