Kansas City woman allegedly locked away, starved 10-year-old daughter

Jacole Price has been arrested for allegedly abusing her 10-year-old daughter. The Huffington Post reported that police officers and a social services worker responded to a call from a child abuse hotline. When officers discovered a crib tied against a door, they asked if anyone was there and the little girl responded with a ‘yes.’ She was taken to a Children’s Mercy Hospital where doctors discovered she gained six pounds since her last visit six years ago.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City woman was charged Saturday with abusing her 10-year-old daughter who weighed just 32 pounds when she was found locked in a closet that reeked of urine.

The 29-year-old woman faces charges of assault and child abuse and endangerment in Jackson County Circuit Court. The Associated Press is not naming the mother to protect the child’s identity. Prosecutors are requesting that bond be set at $200,000.

Officers freed the girl after responding Friday morning to a call to a child abuse hotline. Neighbors told police that they didn’t know the malnourished child taken from the public housing complex even lived there.
