British-born Lynne Spalding checked into San Francisco General Hospital on September 19, 2013, for a urinary tract infection. She became disoriented from her medications and, despite showing signs of improvement, disappeared from her bed two days later.More than two weeks passed before Spalding was finally discovered dead inside a rarely used stairwell. More perplexing is that the only door leading to this stairwell is connected to an alarm that should sound if opened, so how exactly Spalding ended up there is a mystery.
Bradley and Tammi Bleymeyer were charged with a felony in March 2014, when they were discovered keeping their five-year-old son imprisoned in a closet under the stairs. They gave him one piece of bread and a glass of water every day.Bradley, the boy's biological father (Tammi is his stepmother), drugged the boy to keep him quiet when guests were over. At the time of his discovery, Jordan weighed just 29 pounds. Fortunately, he survived the ordeal.
