Frail teen found cuffed in basement

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Authorities found a frail 17-year-old boy handcuffed to a pole in his parents’ Kansas City basement, where he said he’d been kept since his father withdrew him from school in September.

Police said Wednesday that they were still investigating and hadn’t turned over any of their findings to prosecutors for consideration of possible charges. The teen was put in the custody of child services.
