In the house, the officer was shocked to discover a severely malnourished 14-year-old girl. Realizing that she was in immediate need of medical attention, the officer took the teenager straight to Seattle’s Children’s Medical Center. But there, the extent of her horrific ordeal soon became apparent.
According to police spokesman Sergeant John Urquhart, the detective in charge noted that the case was a low point in his 16-year career. “He’s never seen a case of abuse this bad,” Urquhart confessed. Apparently, the girl was so thin that she looked as if she had escaped from a concentration camp.
