Cameras, soundproof rooms: Disturbing new details about how parents allegedly isolated girls
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Behind the doors of a seemingly well-maintained home, police said three girls told them they were trapped, alone and confused.
"The neighbor asked them, well where do you live? [She} didn't recognize them, and they didn't even know their address," Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villasenor said in a press conference on Wednesday.
Police said alarms on the girls' doors and windows would set off a loud, shrill sound if anyone opened them, and music blared inside the girls' rooms, all hours of the day.
When the girls needed to use the restroom, they told police the kids signaled into the cameras, and if their parents agreed: "The hallways were shielded, it was kind of like a tunnel that they would build with sheets and partitions to take them directly to the bathroom and back."
