Kansas City police arrested a 29-year-old woman after they discovered her 10-year-old daughter locked in a small closet that reeked of human waste.
The girl appeared extremely malnourished and was taken to a hospital. "I don´t know if there was food inside. I just know that it was a mess and this poor girl had been spending a large amount of time in there," reported police Capt. Steve Young.
The woman´s boyfriend was also detained. Her other two children were placed in protective custody.
