“We wanted to be together with our daughter,” they said, when asked why they took so long to report her death.

They also admitted that they fed her only once a day for 15 years, and locked her up in the room at some point during her teens because she had begun to exhibit violent tendencies.

Th 32-square-foot room in which the parents kept Kakimoto was built as an addition to the house. It could only be unlocked from the outside and was surrounded by a fence. The mother and father also installed surveillance cameras to keep track of their allegedly mentally ill daughter.
