‘The House of Horror Trio’ keeps getting creepier as 10 children found in cellar


‘The House of Horror Trio’ keeps getting creepier as 10 children found in cellar

How Much Would Benefits Scam Reap?

The alleged elaborate scheme involving four Philadelphia abuse victims and their social security checks could be lucrative.
Even if the checks were $674 a month for four victims, that would come to $32,000 a year.
But police say there could be as many as 50 victims in the case
US police Wednesday probed a growing kidnapping horror after finding 10 children in the care of a woman accused of locking up four mentally-disabled people in a dank cellar.
“This is a very complicated case,” Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said late Tuesday.
“This is a very sad story. It makes no sense. When you look at the kids, the psychological trauma is pretty apparent. It’s some of the worst things I’ve ever experienced.”
Ramsey told CNN Wednesday that 10 children aged from two to 19 had now also been taken into care, including the niece of the prime suspect Linda Weston, who was reported missing in 2009.
A fourth suspect was meanwhile detained in the case after four mentally disabled adults were freed at the weekend having been held against their will in the filthy, dark, fetid cellar of a Philadelphia apartment house.

Authorities said they have now also arrested Jean McIntosh, Weston’s 32-year-old daughter, who is believed to have aided the incarceration of the three men and one woman to cash in their social security checks.



The six children and four teens were taken into care in front of the Philadelphia house. Police are still working to identify all of them, some of whom may have been kidnapped.
“They are still interviewing the children to determine whose they are and where they came from,” said Tasha Jamerson, spokeswoman for the Philadelphia district attorney’s office.
Two of them may have been born to the woman held in the basement. “We don’t know for sure. We’ll have to do DNA testing in order to find out. Apparently they were taken from her at a very, very young age,” Ramsey told CNN.
The children all bore signs of physical abuse and were extremely malnourished. Police spokeswoman Jillian Russell said they were being examined in local hospitals.
Authorities said the four adult victims aged 29 to 40, but with a mental age of around 10, were undernourished with bed sores, and at least one of the men was chained to a water heater, police said.
They were discovered by a landlord at the apartment house on Saturday, locked behind a steel door along with two small dogs in a basement space with a dirt floor, some makeshift beds and no bathroom.
Police said Weston had the identity papers of as many as 50 people when she was arrested on Sunday, suggesting she might have defrauded dozens of people in several states, moving around with victims whenever she came under suspicion.
Mom Talks About Death Linked To Weston
The mom of a woman who died in a Virginia house that was also occupied by alleged Horror House suspect Linda Weston isn’t buying that her daughter died from natural causes.

Weston is jailed in Philadelphia on $2.5 million bail after four people were found locked in a basement dungeon.
But there may be a fifth adult victim that police now say is tied to this case.
Maxine Lee lived with Weston for a time in Virginia, and died three years ago.
Lee’s mom lives here in Philadelphia and Fox 29′s Sara Madonna spoke with her earlier on Wednesday.
Mary Lee says she’s still haunted by what she doesn’t know about her daughter Maxine’s death.
“She was always jolly and Andrew he’s my grandson, she would take care of him. We have pictures of her holding him,” Lee says.more
The adult victims have been revealing details of their grim ordeal. One of them, Darwin McLemire, 41, had been kept in a closet for almost a year in a West Palm Beach house in Florida, according to a police affidavit.
McLemire told police he met Weston in Florida last October and moved in a few weeks later. Weston took his papers, shut him in the closet, and sometimes beat him, he said.
Weston previously served eight years in prison for killing a 25-year-old man who starved to death in her Philadelphia apartment in 1981.

Mark Riordan, a spokesman for the Florida Department of Children and Family said the department had no record of the children in any of its databases or school records.
“The neighbors are coming forward saying they heard screams,” Riordan said. “It does appear law enforcement was called to that house, but nothing was phoned in to the department.”more

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

They go there to make mor…
