A 15-year-old Madison girl has revealed to police that she has been abused for several years in the basement of her home. The teenager apparently escaped from her home earlier this month, and was taken to the police station after a passerby noticed her on the street.
The girl was extremely thin, and wore baggy pajamas. She tells police that her father and stepmother mentally and physically abused her by keeping her locked in the house basement, and never feeding her. She also divulges that her stepbrother sexually assaulted her on different occasions.
Her parents are denying the allegations against them, and the trial is set to begin on Friday. Authorities are still investigating claims that neighbors tried alerting police several times while the girl was imprisoned in her own home.
