Dirty and smelly property

According to the captain informed the vehicle, the mother of the young couple was also kept inside the house. Her husband and father of the victims told the police that he did nothing wrong.

“He told us that the children were mentally ill and needed to be in prison. When we spoke to the lady, she told us that she and her children had not left the house for 17 years. Probably, they were constantly being attacked, but that will be the Civil Police who will see. The atmosphere of the house is a horror. A simple property, almost without furniture, dirty and with a bad smell. People who already think they have seen everything in this life, never imagine that there is anything so scary!”, said the captain to The globe.
