Kansas City, Missouri – A father and his two sons have been arrested today after it was discovered that they chained their mother in their dingy basement all day Sunday during football. A neighbor overheard the mother’s cries for help and called the police immediately.
Police found the mother in deplorable conditions in the pitch black, cold, and dirty basement with her wrists chained to the boiler. A bucket overflowing with excrement was found next to the boiler. Investigators believe she was chained in the basement because the family believed she was talking and walking in front of the television too much during the games. Investigators are also looking into whether this is the first time this has happened or if it has been going on for longer than that.
Two grandsons were also watching the game and they’ve been referred to family services and will appear in family court.
