A woman rescued from a boiler room in a Philadelphia apartment building says she had two children while she was held against her will, police said Tuesday, another development in the bizarre case.
The woman, Tamara Breeden, is one of four mentally disabled adults rescued from the boiler room over the weekend, and authorities have located 10 others who may be victims in the case, said Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey.
The four people, three men and a woman ranging in age from 29 to 41, were found locked in the room with no food and only a bucket for a toilet, police said. The pitch-black, 15-foot-by-6-foot space houses what police described as a boiler used to heat the building. A penetrating stench of urine and feces still hung in the chamber days after the discovery.FULL STORY
