Because they are all related, the Whitakers are considered the most inbred family in the United States; however, recent documents have shown that their parents were cousins rather than the brother and sister that had previously been assumed.
No one has been able to piece together the Whitakers’ family history because of how closely related they are genetically and biologically.
Furthermore, the Whitakers family is guarded by the neighborhood in which they live, making it difficult for anyone to interact with them. They also keep their family history a secret.
However, a horrifying video depicting the Whitakers’ lives went viral in 2020 after being posted on the Soft White Underbelly channel.
Since then, the Whitakers have drawn attention, leading many people to speculate about what might have happened to the family.
The Whitakers Family
The Whitaker household originated in Odd, West Virginia, where they now live. They are regarded as the most well-liked inbred family in the country.
According to the records, The Whitaker family gained notoriety after being photographed by Mark Laita in 2004 for his book Created Equal.
This is evidence that the Whitakers are well protected in Odd, West Virginia. Mark Laita revealed that he encountered threats from neighbors while attempting to photograph the family and had to explain why he was doing so before the locals gave him permission to do so.
Mark Latia visited the Whitaker family in Odd, Virginia once more in 2020. This time, he recorded a video of the visit, which became very popular.
The video by Mark Latia, with the title “Inbred Family: The Whitakers,” has received over 19 million views, 250 thousand likes, and more than 12,000 disapproving comments.
The Whitakers, a British family with elder generations, were seen in the film working on their father’s farm and living in a little Appalachian town.
The Whitakers, on the other hand, appeared to be trying to make ends meet in their tiny home with numerous dogs, based on the appearance of the video.
The Whitakers Family Members
The Whitakers currently consist of Ray, Lorraine, Timmy, Freddie, and an unnamed sister, along with three siblings and a cousin. However, it’s thought that there are still a few members of the family who haven’t been spoken to.
The Whitakers have not yet had a medical examination, but there are claims that inbreeding is to blame for some of their health problems.
