BLOOMFIELD, Conn. - A 15-year-old girl missing for nearly a year was found Wednesday locked in a small hidden room under the staircase of a West Hartford home, and two people who live there were arrested, police said.

Bloomfield police said they found the girl alive in a room blocked from view by a cabinet. They had gone to the home with West Hartford police to serve search warrants for DNA and other evidence.

Adam Gault, 41, was charged with second-degree unlawful restraint, second-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree custodial interference, interfering with an officer, risk of injury to a minor and second-degree forgery. He was being held on $500,000 bond.

Ann Murphy, 40, was charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree reckless endangerment, conspiracy to commit second-degree custodial interference and risk of injury to a minor. She was held on $100,000 bond.

Police said they expect to make additional arrests. The girl was in protective custody and being examined by medical personnel.

"They had gone to the home with West Hartford police to serve search warrants for DNA..."

I can recommend a few places from where they might extract it. I'll guarantee with 100% certitude this guy is hiding his DNA there.

Death penalty for them both.

I am so sick and tired of these demented creatures hurting children.

Which means, I suspect, that she was used as a prostitute, and probably in movies, too.

Bastards.

THANK YOU!

I saw that name and said, “Why do I recognize that name?”

I was thinking it was an old HS chum or something...

Glad the girl is alive, I hope she isn’t irreparably harmed.

They should extract a DNA sample from the center of the accused's brains with a turkey baster.

I’m guessing “non-custodial” parent?

These two sub-human pieces of scum need to be kept with the general prison population and their child harming crimes should be known by the other inmates.

Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking too, non-custodial parent and perhaps the girl was hiding, not being hidden.

They should put those two in that room and seal it up and come back in a year to get their bodies.

Based on the Custodial charges, one of these 2 has to be this girls parent or something... otherwise it would have been kidnapping, I would think.

We’ll have to let this one unfold.. I don’t know anymore than one can infer out of the article based on the charges and manner in which this developed.

Exactly, based on these charges, this doesn’t sound remotely like a stranger abduction. Otherwise Kidnapping etc would have been the charges, not “custodial interference”.

Yes, I look it over again, and I suspect that the man is her father, but that the courts gave custody to the mother. The child probably prefers being with her father and was hiding when the police came by.

We’ll see when the facts come out, but that’s my suspicion. The ages are about right. He would have been about 25 or 26 when she was born.

Yeah, and the girl isn’t being sent home. She’s in protective custody. Sounds like an ugly situation, but not national news worthy.

Please explain, the story is not clear. It’s just that the girl was locked in under the staircase and in this “day and age” that is not good. I apoligize for jumping to conclusions but I still DO NOT understand. I do still want three acres and razor wire.

A .50 caliber bullet should extract plenty of DNA.

If that was “second-degree” unlawful restraint, what in the world would they consider “first-degree”?

Agreed. Capturing women and children and using them as sex slaves makes me want to puke. IMO, that warrants the death penalty.

I wonder what led them to the place though. Any clue?

That's one hook I'll never bite on. We just need parents who take better care of them, a justice system that gets draconian with those proven to have abused them, and a society that doesn't tolerate them being sucked down a sink.

Microchipping kids only leads to adults who don't mind being microchipped.

First degree may be when the kid doesn't want to be there. I don't think we have the whole story on this one.

My hunch is we have a runaway who came back to a non custodial parent when being on her own got too tough.

Death penalty for them both.

If I were the girl's father, I would make sure to arrange just that. If that TV show "Oz" is accurate, it is not difficult to get someone killed in prison.
