In WPVI Interview, Family of Philadelphia Dungeon Suspect Describes Murder, Forced Incest

WPVI reporter Dann Cuellar recently sat down with relatives of Linda Weston, the alleged ringleader in the Philadelphia dungeon case, and there appears to be no limits to her malevolence.

A group of brothers, sisters, and other family members–their identities concealed by the WPVI cameras–described having a deeply abusive relationship with Weston, in which she used drugs and regular beatings to maintain control over them in her seemingly unending drive to collect government checks (video above).

Among the alleged atrocities wrought by Weston: sexual abuse, starvation, and forced incest.

“She would force my younger brothers and sisters to have sex; she would have sex with my other brothers and sisters,” one of Weston’s brothers told WPVI. “She said, ‘Look, make them have babies, we can get more money.’ It could be a brother or sister in her care.”
