(dpa/NAN) Japanese police have arrested the dad and mom of a 33-year-old girl who froze to dying after she was saved in a tiny, unheated room for some 15 years, native media reviews stated on Wednesday.
The girl was reported to have weighed solely 19 kilograms at dying.
The dad and mom of the girl stated they’d put her within the Three-square-metre room when she was about 16 or 17 years previous due to a psychological incapacity that made her violent.
The pair was arrested after they notified the police of her dying.
In order to make sure that the girl’s confinement wouldn’t be seen, the 55-year-old father and his 53-year-old spouse put in about 10 safety cameras across the picket fence-enclosed home in Osaka.
The dad and mom had the small room specifically constructed onto the home, which featured a door that may very well be opened solely from the skin.
According to media reviews, it was outfitted with a primitive bathroom and a pipe, which the girl used to drink water from an outdoor tank.
