The youngest person found in the home is in their early 20s, according to Edwards. All but five of them are men, Egli ha detto.
Because some people had Covid-19-like symptoms, including loss of taste and smell, the group is being kept in the home and will be given rapid tests.
Authorities brought them food and water, as they said they hadn’t eaten in a while.
Homeland Security Investigations (HIS) will take over the investigation.
There is no information on who owns the home, or who may have brought the group into it, according to Edwards. Neighbors didn’t report any suspicious activity and police didn’t release information on the kidnapping call that led to the discovery.
“We always ask the community if you see something say something … we all need to work together,” Ha detto Edwards. “This isn’t something we see often but it is disturbing,” Ha aggiunto.
