I vote death penalty for the grandparents and prosecution of the adults who did not follow up on the story.Two Dayton residents have been accused of keeping an elementary-school aged girl locked in an apartment for six years, letting her out only to go to school.
Tolpin said the girl was locked in a bathroom, barricaded behind two dressers, from the time she came up from school until the time she left again the next morning.
“Meals were inconsistent at best and basically the living conditions were deplorable,” Tolpin said.
The girl slept on a fold-up cot with a blanket but no pillow, Tolpin said.
Apparently, the girl confided with some adults when she was in the first grade, but nothing happened, so she had a distrust toward adults, Tolpin said.
She was even locked in during weekends, Tolpin said
