32 pound 10 year old girl rescued from closet in Kansas City. Two other siblings [View all]

appear to be healthy. The "mother" allegedly knew that the girl was malnourished and kept her locked up because she was afraid she'd get in trouble if people saw her.

How can this happen?

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
A mother now faces multiple charges after police, following a welfare tip, found her oldest daughter severely malnourished and locked in a closet.

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker stood in front of The Children's Place, a group who focuses on nurturing and caring for young victims of abuse, late Saturday afternoon as she announced 29-year-old Jacole N. Price would be charged with first-degree assault, abuse of child and first-degree endangering the welfare of a child.


"Some of us may view Friday - the day a little girl is found trapped in a closet as a terrible day, but it was a great day for this young girl, this 10-year-old child who is just about to celebrate her 11th birthday," Baker said explaining that Friday was the day the girl was rescued from an atrocious situation.

Court documents detail how the girl was not allowed to eat with the rest of her family and officers said the stench of urine coming from her closet was hard to bare. Baker said it's believed the girl was confined off-and-on in the small space for a prolonged period of time, but wouldn't go into more specific details.
