Rumors have been circulating about a possible raid on the home of the Duggar family of TLC Counting On for about a week. While fans at Reddit and some media picked up the potential story, it was difficult for local and national news media to pinpoint exactly what could be happening.
On November 19, 2019, local news stations in northwest Arkansas confirmed through National Security Investigations that some of Duggar’s recent rumors could have been well founded.
Fans speculated that there might be an ongoing FBI investigation at the Duggar home
In mid-November, fans on Reddit, Facebook and Twitter speculated that an FBI raid or other form of federal investigation was potentially ongoing for the Duggar family.
The locals near the Duggar house in Tontitown, Arkansas, said they saw strange things near the Duggar house, such as an unusual lack of cars, police activity and reporters at the nearby Duggar car dealership. Reddit users who claimed to be from the area said they had heard through the vine that the Duggars were being investigated.
In addition, Anna Duggar, wife of Josh Duggar, is normally active on social networks. His unusual silence and his suddenly limited Instagram comments helped spread the rumors, which led some Counting On fans to believe an investigation was underway.

We enjoyed a visit to the St. Louis Zoo on our way up to Oshkosh, Wisconsin last week! It’s always exciting to see the different animals and the kiddos love it! This time through the zoo we kept a list of the continents the different animals were from — it made for fun trivia the rest of our road trip reading off the names of the different creatures and guessing which continent was their natural habitat! #stlouiszoo #littleduggars
Rumors centered on Josh Duggar
In what many later considered as simple rumors and conjectures, fans offered speculation about what might be the reason for the alleged investigation. Tax evasion, money laundering and possible crimes against children were mentioned, but the FBI confirmed to Radar Online that they were not involved in “any type of police action” there.
Josh Duggar was mentioned by many Counting On fans as a potential subject of any supposed or rumored investigation. Duggar is currently involved in a lawsuit involving alleged real estate fraud and previously admitted having sexually abused several children as a teenager, including several of his own sisters.
Some fans wondered if Derick Dillard was involved
Derick Dillard, Jill Duggar Dillard’s husband (who is no longer in TLC Counting On), also recently spoke on Twitter against TLC and the program in general, which led some fans to speculate that Jim-Bob Duggar could also be involved.
The law student wrote on Twitter on November 14, “TLC has problems. They begged us not to stop filming, but then they didn’t want to hear from us why we quit. If money is the only thing that matters to them, then they will catch up with them: you have to worry about people. All I have to say is that it is better for a lawyer to get up because a storm is inevitable. “
Some fans felt that their comments pointed to recent rumors about an investigation, but Dillard never spoke directly about it.
Homeland Security Investigations seemed to confirm certain aspects of the rumor
National Security Investigations (HSI) spoke with KNWA, a media outlet in northwest Arksansas, on November 19. According to the media, an HSI spokesman made the following comment about the raid last week: “[I do not dispute the information that] HSI was present there [Duggar’s house] in accordance with an ongoing federal criminal investigation.”
Although this comment does not provide detailed information, it seems to support the idea that a federal investigation is ongoing at Duggar’s house. The HSI spokesman gave no further information about possible charges or arrests. According to the media, the US district attorney. UU. For western Arkansas declined to comment.
Jedidiah Duggar, who recently announced his decision to run for state office with the Republican Party, also made a comment. “I don’t live there and I’m not aware of any research,” the 20-year-old told KNWA-TV.
