Parents Arrested After Daughter Kept In Tiny Cell For 17 Years Dies

NEYAGAWA, JAPAN - DECEMBER 27: A security camera is in operation at the house where a 33-year-old woman was found dead and in an emaciated state after being confined in a tiny chamber for about 17 years, is seen on December 27, 2017 in Neyagawa, Osaka, Japan. A couple kept their daughter imprisoned in a tiny windowless chamber for almost 17 years until she died in an emaciated state in mid-December, police said. The malnourished woman froze to death at age 33. She weighed just 19 kilograms, a forensic autopsy showed. Her father, company employee Yasutaka Kakimoto, 55, and mother, Yukari, 53, were arrested December 23 on suspicion of abandoning the corpse of the daughter. The chamber measuring 3.2 square meters occupied one of the rooms of the house, according to investigators. A temporary toilet and monitoring camera were installed inside the chamber, which was locked from outside and had no window. Recently, the daughter had to survive on one meal a day, which she ate inside her cell. She drank water through a tube from a water supply tank outside, investigators said.
