This Woman's Family Shockingly Locked Her Away In A Dungeon For 25 YearsEver feel a little bit claustrophobic from sitting in the office too long? The lack of stimulus alone is enough for someone to want to develop a smoking habit just to have an excuse to leave.
Now, imagine you were confined to a room smaller than your cubicle for 25 years. There is no light, no central heating or air conditioning. The only food you eat are scraps from someone else's table and your only friends, the rats who scavenge what little crumbs that fall to the stony floor. Mademoiselle Blanche Monnier experienced this for a quarter of a century. The most shocking thing about this? It was Blanche's mother who imprisoned her.
On May 23, 1901, the Paris Attorney General received the following letter, which read: "Monsieur Attorney General: I have the honor to inform you of an exceptionally serious occurrence. I speak of a spinster who is locked up in Madame Monnierís house, half starved, and living on a putrid litter for the past twenty-five years Ė in a word, in her own filth."

That poor lady! I can not even begin to imagine being locked up for 25years!
Such a sad story, that was one wicked mother!
