I am not 100% on all the facts here, but I am just remembering what I overheard my parents talking about when I was much younger. I believe it was in Enumclaw, but possibly could have been Black Diamond too, but from what I remember hearing...in the early 1980's, there was a popular store in town owned by a husband and wife, and it was later revealed that for the longest time they kept their daughter locked away in the back room of the store, malnourished, dirty and in the dark with nowhere to sleep or use the bathroom.
This has disturbed me for some time, and while it may not be a very popular topic of discussion, I am curious if anyone else knows anything of this or has heard anything regarding this?

I believe you're speaking about the corner store out at the Sales Barn. I think it's an Exxon station now. The Girl died after being hit in the stomach with a baseball bat.

YES, that is the one I think...morbid as my curiousity may seem, I just still remember my dad mentioning that (he worked in the area) and it has always bothered me to this day. I just hope the people responsible were prosecuted for it though.
