    Another missing child is possible link to Tacony ‘dungeon’ case

    in 2008, Jane McIntosh picked up then-2-year-old “Little L” from the Kensington home the toddler was staying in, promising to bring the girl back after a birthday party. Little L never came back, McIntosh is charged in the Tacony “dungeon” kidnapping case and Chevelle and Robert McGill, who’d been caring for the toddler, haven’t seen her since.

    The Daily News reports today the McGills offered to adopt Little L in 2008 from Linda Ann Weston. Weston, then living in Kensington with several other children said yes, but never made a legal agreement. She is now the alleged ringleader of a deepening case that involves stolen Social Security payments, abuse of mentally disabled adults, kidnappings, missing children and several other crimes.

    She, Eddie Wright and Gregory Thomas are due in court today after police last weekend found four adults held captive in a Tacony basement. McIntosh, Weston’s daughter, also faces charges.

    The McGills still don’t know where Little L is.
