This is one of those stories where I have to take some time before writing any more.
Here is video from a CNN affiliate:

TACONY – October 17, 2011 (WPVI) — Philadelphia police say alleged kidnapping ringleader Linda Ann Weston had at least 50 social security numbers in her possession when she was arrested this weekend.

They say Weston could have been holding the four adults for a decade or more.

    I’ve been following this story, and it just gets worse. The main suspect already had a murder rap for locking someone in the closet for weeks until he starved to death. How can anyone treat other human beings this way? At least if a criminal shoots someone in an alley for their wallet, it’s over quickly. But living with someone you’re slowly torturing to death for their measly disability checks? That’s truly sociopathic.
