    Suspect in Tacony lock-up has personal documents for dozens of other people

    More details are coming to light on the three suspects arrested over the weekend for keeping four mentally challenged adults locked up in a Tacony basement.

    The investigation is going to be a big one, involving the FBI and police in Philadelphia, Florida and Texas. Fox29 reports one suspect has Social Security documents on nearly 50 other people.

    According to the report, the victims found Saturday may have been in the suspects’ custody for 11 years, and the female suspect is believed to be the orchestrator.

    Linda Weston reportedly has relatives in the Longshore Avenue home the adults were found in, and was found with documents of dozens of other people in her possession.

    WHYY/NewsWorks reporter Taunya English will have details for us later on the case and what role mental health services could now play.
