Mother Locked Son Inside Closet For More Than Four Years! He Escaped.

A woman was arrested after her 14-year-son told the authorities that he escaped from a home where he had been kept for four and a half years, spending most of his time locked in a bedroom closet.

A security guard at a National Guard facility in Oklahoma City called the police after the teenager showed up malnourished and with numerous scars and other signs of abuse, Sgt. Gary Knight said.

The boy was taken to a hospital and then turned over to the custody of the Department of Human Services, Sergeant Knight said.

The boy’s mother, LaRhonda Marie McCall, 37, and a friend, Steve Vern Hamilton, 38, were arrested on 20 complaints each of child abuse and child neglect. They both remained jailed Tuesday on $400,000 bond.

Uh huh...now what's the real tea here? You have to wonder why an otherwise 'good mother' would put one child on lockdown. Wasn't this story on Desperate Housewives?
