Evil stepmother not just a fairy-tale staple
Kansas Police Find Two Starving Girls in Parents' Basement
Police found two emaciated girls, ages 6 and 7, were found secluded in a Wichita basement. They told police that they were only ever given food when their father, who travels frequently on business, was at home. Their stepsiblings, ages 4 and 8, were kept upstairs in the house proper, well-fed and healthy.
The stepchildren are in foster care. The little girls themselves are hospitalized, being treated for starvation.
Words fail me.
