Philadelphia charges as four found chained in basement

Three suspects have been charged with chaining four mentally disabled adults in a basement in Philadelphia and collecting their disability benefits.

Police found the victims after investigating reports of squatters.

The room was too short to stand up in, one victim was chained to a boiler, and the only food in the room was a container of orange juice, police said.

One suspect, Linda Ann Weston, previously served eight years in prison for starving a man to death 1981.

Police officially charged Weston, 51, Gregory Thomas, 47, and Eddie Wright, 50 with multiple charges, including criminal conspiracy, kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Authorities are looking into additional federal charges, a spokesman told the The Philadelphia Inquirer.

"We're going to find every crime possible in the crime code to put on these individuals," said Lt Raymond Evers.

The adults found in the basement have the mental capacity of 10-year-olds, police said.

They ranged in age from 29 to 41. Once found, they were taken to hospital and listed as being in a stable condition.







Buckets of excrement

Turgut Gozleveli, the owner of the Philadelphia building, told the Philadelphia Inquirer he checked out the basement after neighbours complained of suspicious people.

When he failed to find anyone in the basement, he followed the sound of a barking dog to a room under the basement, where a chain was wrapped around a door handle.

Inside he saw two small dogs and blankets, and then people's faces.

"It was terrible," he said. "Something I never expected to see in my life."





He then called police, who found the adults in the 15ft by 15ft (4.5m), room, surrounded by buckets of their own excrement.

Starvation death

According to police interviews with the captives , they had been brought to Philadelphia about 10 days before they were found, having been in West Palm Beach, Florida, and Texas.

Linda Ann Weston and Eddie Wright recently lived for about two months at a home in West Palm Beach, stripping it of wire and plumbing and smearing faeces on the walls, according to a report by the Palm Beach Post.

Previously she served eight years in prison for starving to death 25-year-old Bernardo Ramos. Ramos had refused to support her sister's unborn child.

She held him in the closet of their Philadelphia apartment in 1981 for two months, feeding him only three times, according to reports.

Im typically against the death penalty, but these people should be out in front of a firing squad.
