Marisa Almiron, 42, was rescued by cops in Venado Tuerto, Argentina, in a disturbing case which bears striking similarities to the infamous crimes of Josef Fritzl in Austria. Police found Marisa tied naked to her filthy bed surrounded by her own excrement, according to local media. She reportedly had clear signs of malnutrition and is said to be "psychologically affected" by her alleged year confinement. Marisa was taken to Hospital Alejandro Gutierrez in the city, located in the south-west of the country, where she continues to received treatment. According to reports, her father allegedly enslaved her as a young woman because she had a boyfriend.
By Jordan Barnes For Mailonline. An Argentine woman has been freed after being found naked and chained to a bed in a house where she was held captive for 20 years. Marisa Almiron, 42, spent decades as a prisoner of her own family after she was locked up by her father 'for having a boyfriend' as a young woman, local media reports.
Vickie Seale Higginbotham, 58, and her daughter Danielle Martin, 32, were jailed for 20 years after pleading guilty to aggravated child abuse of the year-old. Five members of a family who allegedly chained up and caged a naked boy with special needs inside a dog kennel have been jailed. The boy, who was the son of Martin, was "treated like a dog by his mother" while Higginbotham was the "ringleader" of abuse of her grandson, prosecutor Josh Cochrane said in court yeterday. The abuse came to light two years ago when police received an anonymous tip about a child being bound by chains and padlocks inside a home in Autaugo County, in Alabama. The three adults who were also in the house initially denied being involved, but Higginbotham later admitted to chaining him up, telling police she didn't know else to punish him.

An Argentinian woman has been found naked and chained to a bed after being held captive by her father and brother for 20 years. She was only discovered in the family home when a neighbour went to the police after hearing her scream. Her father reportedly died after holding her captive for eight years, but her brother Mario is said to have continued the practice and kept her chained up for another 12 years. The neighbour said that she had been reporting the situation for years, but police never acted on her warnings.
