Investigators found the woman - whom Edwards described as having the functional capacity of a minor - malnourished, covered in insect bites and living in a shrub-covered, 6-by-8-foot cage outside a Rushing Lane home, with all her belongings, a small bowl of spoiled food, a mattress and a 5-gallon bucket in which to defecate.
