Arizona teen locked in homemade dungeon for months; daring escape leads to parents' arrest
...Police documents say the officers found a blanket, empty cans of food and a bucket filled with urine in a "dilapidated" room, the station reported.
Scott Bass reportedly told police he locked the child up as punishment for stealing food and cheating on her homeschool assignments.
A medical exam of the girl appears to reveal severe malnutrition.
It just makes me ill that someone would treat a child this way. I wonder how the parents got so far off track.
I hope the public will do a little research before jumping on the "we need to regulate" homeschoolers bandwagon. CPS already knew there was a problem in this household.
