A Texas couple, Brian and Shannon Gore, have pled guilty to child abuse after being found to have kept their own daughter locked in a cage for 6 years. Sentencing is scheduled for June 10.
The police arrested the Gores in May 2011 after finding the girl in a cage made of an upside down crib held down by objects, starving, naked, covered in her own waste, and weighing under 16 pounds at age 6.
Officers also found an infant in the home who appeared unharmed and the dead body of another child which was so decomposed that it was unrecognizable.
Take a look at this Huffington Post article which provides more gruesome details on this story.
Authorities have placed this girl with another family but believe she may never be able to have a normal life due to the trauma she has undergone.
