Lady Jailed For Holding Disabled Adults Hostage For 11 Years, Stealing Their Social Security Checks

Convicted murderer Linda Weston, 50, along with accomplices Eddie Wright, 51, and Gregory Thomas, 48, were charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, false imprisonment and fraud after four mentally disabled adults (three of who are identified as Tamara Breeden, Derwin McLemire, and Herbert Knowles) were found chained and locked in a 15x15', filthy Philadelphia basement boiler room last Saturday. Linda posed as the victims' caregiver to cash their government assistance checks. Two of the captives were held for 11 years and referred to Linda as "Mom," police said. When Linda was arrested, found at least 50 different identifications on her. Investigators now believe Linda has others in captivity, but she's not telling.

Here's a look inside the boiler room/dungeon where the victims were held captive.
