Mentally challenged adults kept prisoner in basement
« on: October 16, 2011, 06:21:40 PM »
In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a janitor who thought someone was keeping a dog in a basement room was horrified to discover four mentally challenged adults being held captive. It is believed the three suspects in the case may have been trying to steal the victims' Social Security checks.

From the article:

Linda Ann Weston, 51; Thomas Gregory, 47; and Eddie Wright, 49, face charges including criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault, kidnapping, criminal trespass, unlawful restraint, and false imprisonment, Philadelphia police said in a statement Sunday.

The alleged victims include a 29-year-old woman and three men, ages 31, 35 and 41, said Philadelphia police Lt. Ray Evers.
