What is the name of the feral child who had been locked in her bedroom for about 12 years?
The child was found on the 4th of November, 1970
Actually, Genie is the pseudonym for the feral child. She is one of the most recognizable victims of social isolation.
The baby (Genie) was born in 1957. At the time she reached the age of 1 year, her father decided that the baby was mentally retarded. He locked her alone in a room and kept her in complete isolation for about 12 years! She wasn't allowed to speak or come out of the room. At night, he kept her in an iron cage.
The victim was released from the disgusting prison on the 4th of November, 1970. Today, she is living in an undisclosed location in California.
Genie at the age of 14. This beautiful girl has suffered so much!
