Response to Voice for Peace (Reply #31)

39. The article says that the girl was "singled out" and the others were "well cared for."

She had her daughter locked in a closet, hardly fed her, and didn't let her use the bathroom. And she KNEW how bad this was, because that's why she didn't let people see the girl -- who, at almost 11, should have weighed at least 2 or 3 times what she weighed. I don't care where this all "started" -- the mother was the responsible one and she knew what she was doing was wrong.

Officers found that a portable crib was pushed against the closet door and a small rope and wide shoelaces were tied around the handles to keep the girl locked inside while everybody was gone.

The prosecutor said it's unknown why this girl was singled out from the rest. She added that the girl's younger sisters were well cared for and neighbors reported seeing the mother playing outside with the two younger children on many occasions.

The little girl told authorities that she gets in trouble for peeing on herself and Prince will sometimes punch her on the back "real hard."

When police questioned Prince, she admitted to not letting her oldest daughter leave the house because she was embarrassed of the way the way the girl looked. She said she knew her daughter was malnourished and she was worried she would get in trouble if someone saw her.
