Teen handcuffed to pole in parents’ basement for months


KANSAS CITY, Missouri – Authorities found a frail 17-year-old boy handcuffed to a pole in his parents’ Kansas City basement, where he said he’d been kept since his father withdrew him from school in September.

According to a police report, an officer and social worker who were acting on a phoned-in tip visited the family’s home on Monday. When they entered the basement, they heard someone cry out, “I didn’t do anything. I didn’t do anything. I didn’t do anything.”

“I then observed a thin frail looking male getting out of the fetal position on the concrete floor around a steel support pole,” Officer Jonathan Stone wrote in the report. The teen was handcuffed to the pole and looked very thin for his height, with a sunken face and eyes that “had a look of desperation.”
